Re: CBD and/or Cannabis oil

I have heard that a Doctor's prescription of Marinol will provide the same benefits with the protections of the FDA approved supply chain. Unless the State that you live in has superb oversight over the new marijuana industry, the FDA is not operating in that lane, and therefore I would not trust wh...

Re: Recurrence - The Longest Month

I am sorry to read of your recurrence. Going to Dan Farber and MSK in NYC are great opportunities for progress back to NED. I noticed that your footer does not reflect taking Oxyplatin, Avasitin or other drugs commonly mentioned on this blog. It would appear that you have many more options, dependin...

Re: Pathological downstaging

It is always good to see NED and better results than last reported, but I am a big believer in not sugar coating the initial staging upon diagnosis. It is my personal belief that the higher the stage, the more aggressive the treatment. Treatment and surveillance efforts are not cheap, so no insuranc...

Re: Anyone with peri mets who survived?

She did not change her diet much, but has always been a healthy eater. She eats less now than before though...I am not sure why, but our kids are in college and she eats when she is hungry as opposed to always cooking (and eating with) for two teenage boys living in the house:) She is currently a pa...

I am sorry to read your most recent post. My wife has received her infusion treatments at a local hospital and Dana Farber in Boston, MA has provided the plan of action.

Re: Ops ! New lymph node

I do not know much about cancer care in Turkey. I would go to your nearest cancer specialists and get a second opinion on the new lymph node involvement. Cancer centers in the USA have more experience with changing drug and treatment plans than most local hospital oncology departments. Let us know w...
