Re: A Low Carbohydrate, High Protein Diet Slows Tumor Growth and Prevents Cancer Initiation

Multiple diets exist that have cancer protective factors. The most important is to keep processed sugar out. Vegan, Paleo. etc. all seem to do that. Diets that reduce inflammation are helpful

If a person is diabetic and or obese; they are most high in the recurrence. B

Re: Possible for long term remission with only chemo?

Or am I doomed to die? This is weighing heavily on my mind lately. I constantly hear cure can only be achieved by cutting out the cancer. In my case, HIPEC would be my only solution to cutting out the cancer or do I have any other options to research? HIPEC is only successful in a very small percen...

Re: Acupuncture or Chiropractic Therapy for Post cancer gi issues and pain

Sorry you are having to deal with this. Neither profession IMO. Has your doc looked at scans for adhesions? With the gallbladder removed there is frequently modifications in diet needed (type of foods and not the quantity per se).

Re: Getting A Colonoscopy With (potential) Sleep Apnea

No it will not be a problem for the following reasons

You will be hooked up to a pulse ox to measure o2 saturation
If your o2 is low you will likely already be on oxygen which can be turned up
You will be lying on your side which provides improved breathing as opposed to on your back.

Re: CEA for lung metastasis

CEA varies among individuals. For some it is an effective biomarker, for other it is not. Myself, I have never had an abnormal CEA yet had a tumor in my right colon and lung mets. There is another marker that is sometimes used called a CA 19-9. Hope this helps. B

Re: Lung met cryoablation tomorrow

Just curious if you are in the US? I ask because I too have a 4-5 lung mets and have never been offered any treatment other than standard chemo and now Erbitux. Is ablation not as well received in the US? Should I ask my Onc why it hasn't been mentioned? Yes, I am in the US. Cryoablation is a speci...

Re: Lung met cryoablation tomorrow

What's the difference between cryoablation and RFA? Congrats on getting those suckers evicted! Cryoablation is a freeze-thaw-freeze process, As they run you in and out of a ct scanner they can see the ice ball surround and exceed the margins of the lesion. RFA uses radio-frequency waves which gener...
