If you survey around internationally, a global list of surgeons currently using Rolle's laser technique would sound like an important option (please share) for preserving lung volume, removing more mets and preserving any later options as needed.
Btw fellow CC members, in the annual goals area, perhaps Colon Club should try to raise funds to honor and get Rolle and Ladas to lecture, share, advocate their methods.
For any surgery, most people miss out on important immune and targetable therapies from available small footprint, "low tech" biochemistry, in part or in toto (cimetidine, celecoxib, high potency nutraceuticals, etc). Once this latter area is implemented well enough, preferably maximized with immunochemo, and achieves some metastatic control, then patients can be multimodal instead of inoperable, and chip away at the mets with multiple therapies and diagnostics if necessary. This seems especially important in those off times when no chemo is normally used or available, although immunochemo methods allowed us success much closer to surgery.
My major concern with Dr. Lin and (separately) integrative/alternative/naturopathic drs is whether they go far enough to achieve consistent target states (e.g. "trying to bat a 1000" in certain normally adverse conditions), rather than narrowly limit themselves to some fixed protocol(s) that don't anticipate addons. I don't think so, in our experience. There are extra options where drs are unfamiliar or are slow to go despite obvious benefits and attractions of improved recovery and well being as well as better cancer control.
In my eyes, any way you can tag a met "out" is legit, especially if it makes you stronger, feel better, and/or improves your bloodwork.
