Health Status @ 21 November 2009

From this week onwards, I will do a weekly summary of my health status. I will give some details of my tumor, the treatment that I have taking, any reaction and flare-ups and the health status.

Problem
Tumor mass of size of about 13cm on the right kidney and 21 over nodes all over my left and right lungs with one up to 3cm in size. Possibly also spread to the liver.

First detected on 11 September 2009 through CT Scan. Subsequent CT scan on 24 October 2009 showed a slight improvement and possibly no growth.

Prognosis
Consulted four urologist (one in Singapore and three in Malaysia) and two oncologist (one in Malaysia and one in Singapore). Both oncologist suggested removal of right kidney. Singapore urologist also suggested removal of kidney. The three uronogist do not recommend surgery or chemotherapy. The last urologist consulted said most of his patients died within six months of surgery while two on the experimental drug Sutent is not responding. All agree that is no cure for the moment.

Schedule for next scan is in January 2010.

Treatment Undertaking
a. Modified Gerson Therapy
a1. Coffee Enema
Initially, four times a day for four weeks, every four hours apart. Subsequently three times a day in the morning, afternoon and evening for 15 minutes.

Started the enema on a sitting position but results stopped after about one month. Now is done by lying on the right of the body as recommended by the Gerson therapy.

a2. Nutrition Diet
All fruits and vegetables mentioned are organic.
i. Juicing - 10 fruit and vegetables juices a day begining around 7am and ending 7pm. First juice is either 40% ripe papaya (with skin) or green apple, then alternating between carrot+apple and vegetables (mainly lettuce) and ending with carrot juice.
2. Diet - No oil, no sugar and no salt on all cooking. For breakfast and supper, maily oats with some raisins, sometimes a little manuka honey is added. For lunch and dinner, vegetables such as Siew Pak Choy, Lettuce, lady's fingers, califlower, broccoli and spinach are mainly steamed or boiled. K-salt is added for flavouring. A teaspoon of flaxseed oil is added when serving (but not during cooking). Somali organic brown rice is consumed and sometime potatoes are also used. ABC or hypocrates soup are also prepared but not everyday.
3. Supplements - K-salt, naicin, kelp (for iodine), Q10 and Ohhira mountain fruits extract
4. Others - Rye bread, papaya and banana are consumed at regular intervals.

Initial reaction to the Gerson therapy was severe loss of weight within three weeks. This was possibly due to my own fault for not juicing and eating enough during the first three weeks. I did not follow the therapy closely. Weight is now stabalised and have settled down to a routine.

b. Homeopathy Medicine
Consulting Doctor: DR AU Ramakrishnan MBBS,PhD, Chenni, India (http://www.drramakrishnan.com/)

Reaction: Heatiness around the face and body for a shot period of time in the morning after taking morning tablet. Mouth ulcers and now slight sort throat. These are transient reaction.

Health Status
Other that the initial weight loss, no visible side effects or symptoms detected to date. Not as strong as before, susceptible to cold. Easy get tied when lefting heavy stuffs but no problems climbing a few flight of stairs. Energy level is strong and spirits is high.

Fever is gone and mouth ulcers seems to be subsiding. However, got some sort throat this morning.

Verdict
Alive and kicking and raring to go each morning.
