Health Status @ 7 March 2010

I will post my status up a little earlier since I will be leaving for Singapore in the morning. New information are presented in italics.

Tumor mass of size of about 14cm on the right kidney and 21 and 23 over nodes all over my left and right lungs respectively with one up to 3cm in size on both lungs. Possibly also spread to the liver.

First detected on 11 September 2009 through CT Scan. Subsequent CT scan on 1 March showed some improvements on the larger nodes in the lungs but did not provide enough details on the smaller nodes. The primary tumor is now about 12.4cm, about the same size in October 2009. However, a new node was detected about the size of 3.5cm x 3.7cm.

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 urologist 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 drug Sutent is not responding. All agree that is no cure for the moment.

My urologist said my cancer is at stage 4 and did not recommend me to take any treatment. It is also my own choice not to take conventional treatment after considering all the facts of the case.

Schedule for next scan is in 1 March 2011.

b. Homeopathy Medicine
Consulting Doctor: DR AU Ramakrishnan MBBS,PhD, Chennai, India (
Local Consultant: Vishuddi Lee

Medication Given : Phosphorus and Carsinosin (alternating between weekly), morning and evening tablet.
Reaction: No further reactions observed other than mouth ulcers every now and then.

c. Acupuncture Therapy
Started acupuncture on 3 March 2010. Originally to ease the back and shoulder pain. The master has however put me on a six months Chinese medication program as well.

d. Oxygen Therapy
Will start to use a personal oxygen generator with effect from 8 March 2010 upon my return from Singapore. Richer oxygen does help in controlling the growth of the tumors. It also reduces fatigue.

Health Status
Current weight is around 69.7kgs. Back and left shoulder pain for almost two weeks now. It affects my sleep a little since the weight of my body does affect the muscles around the back. To overcome it, I have to sleep in different positions so as not to strain the muscles. A little uncomfortable at times. The pain is minimal when not sleeping.

Hopefully it's only a muscle problem rather than a bigger problem. Am watching for growth of lumps, so far of which there were none. Keeping my fingers crossed. Otherwise a difficult but productive week.
