Health Status @ 29 May 2010

New information are presented in italics.

Problem
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 2010 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. The two bigger nodes on the left and right lungs has reduced by about 1.5cm. However, a new node was detected about the size of 3.5cm x 3.7cm at the T6 area.

Prognosis
Consulted four urologists (one in Singapore and three in Malaysia) and two oncologists (one in Malaysia and one in Singapore). Both oncologists suggested removal of right kidney. Singapore urologist also suggested removal of kidney. The three urologists 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 expensive (RM20K per month) 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 September 2010.

Health Status
Managed to increase weight by a few hundred grams but weight is still around the lower of 68±1kgs. Most of the body pain is now minimal. Main problems are mouth ulcers and stomach gases that comes mostly in the afternoons. To improve my digestion, I have started to take brown rice porridge laced with sweet potatoes or pumpkin to give it a little more flavor. So far no problems eating it and does not cause stomach gases to build up. I also feel hungry most of the time.

Now I am beginning to feel like my old self gaining more confidence as the day passes. Since my last massage, I have been sleeping better last two days. My body also did not complain so much nor I feel tired when carrying a little weight of around 3kgs.


Verdict
Very good week.
