Re: PET SCAN

Thanks vilca11 for the encouragement. I take one gram per kg of body weight. So 60grams because I'm about 60 kgs. I do it once a week but if everything is going I want more!!! Why aren't more people do Vitamin C in the USA? It's the next big thing here in New Zealand.

Re: Is vitamin C my hero?

Re: Question for Stage IVs

Most recurrences happen within two years. However there are always exceptions. Mine came back at the 1.5 year mark.

Re: PET SCAN

Hey Jay My CEA was 1 two weeks ago. Infact all of my bloods look the best they have in ten years. I can tell that my surgeon was excited by my scan. The fact that these nodes/spots??? are not burning sugar gives me hope that something is killing of the cancer. I don't want HIPEC this body is to skin...

Is vitamin C my hero?

Hi Everyone, So I though I would inform you as to the discussion over my PET scan. At this point no one is saying the cancer is gone. The suspicious spots that were noted everyone is labelling as cancer...even through that are not burning sugar like cancer does "not significantly hyper metaboli...

PET SCAN

Had my first Pet Scan and got the results today. The only thing they said of interest is "Small nodules within pelvis and omentum 252/392 are suspicious. However, none of these are significantly hypermetabolic." WHF does that mean??? My Ct was clear now I have 392 possible areas of growth?...

How to help those grieving?

Hi Everyone, My best friend in the whole world just lost her dad to lung cancer six months ago. She flew to New Zealand from the US to stay with me and loved it.

Re: To HIPEC or NOT TO HIPEC.

Hi Painintheass You hit the nail on the head Maybe you don't believe it will/can and your doubt is causing the lack of feeling the strength to go through with it. Sometimes emotions just get all muddled and you need some space to sort them all out. You'll feel better when they are. That is exactly h...

Re: ileostomy fatigue

I have a very short bowel and now I do vitamin C with a crap load of other vitamins intravenously. My husband swears I have more energy afterwards. I know on the day of the infusion I feel like crap but the next four-six days later I function like a person with normal energy levels.

Worth a try.
