Re: Another question on alt meds/vitamins/etc

All of the things I take are due to some evidence I have found that it will help the body to fight cancer. You can look for medical articles on these things.

Re: High dose vitamin C

I think it is going to cost 150 new zealand dollars. Which is doable but I also have my wider family pitching in on the costs.

Re: I'm sorry for being MIA

Hi Christine This is exactly how I feel. When hope is fading there just isn't much to say. Constantly putting on a happy face is hard to do. I am just so sick of people calling me with empty offerers of help. The only person who is really there for me is my husband and he is doing everything. Blow a...

Re: CEA fluctuation?

CEA can rise while on chemo. You really need to be tested once off. Mine went up while on chemo.

Re: Pelvic mass - Update

So happy to read about your successful surgery. I wanted HIPEC but my oncologist said it is very difficult to recover from. It is something left in my bag of tricks if needed.
