Health Status @ 25 September 2010

New information are presented in italics.

Tumor mass of size of about 15cm on the right kidney and 21 and 20 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.

Latest scan on 26 August 2010 showed slight improvement and the nodes in my lungs are now smaller. However, the kidney tumor has grown slightly bigger to 15cm.

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.

Subsequently during the 1 year review on 2 September 2010, my oncologist in Singapore recommended that I consider:

a. Tumor debulk and
b. Sutent medication or
c. Interferon treatment

a. Modified Gerson Therapy
a1. Coffee Enema
Initially, four times a day for four weeks, every four hours apart. Currently three times a day in the morning, afternoon and evening for 15 minutes. Commence castor oil enema from 23 January 2010.

a2. Nutrition Diet
All fruits and vegetables mentioned are organic.
i. Juicing - 11 fruit and vegetables juices a day beginning around 7am and ending 7pm. 5 apple+carrot, 2 carrot and 4 green vegetable juices every hourly. Liver supplements are taken together with carrot juices. Added snake plant leaves to carrot+apple juices.
2. Diet - No oil, no sugar and no salt on all cooking. For breakfast and supper, mainly 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, cauliflower, broccoli and spinach are mainly steamed or boiled. K-salt is added for flavoring. A teaspoon of flaxseed oil is added when serving (but not during cooking). Mainly boiled potatoes and sometimes Somali organic brown rice is consumed.

d. Oxygen Therapy

Health Status
Currently weighs 67.9kgs, a slight increase 0.2kg. During mid week, I lost further weight and frantically tried to gain back by eating more. My body feels good especially when the pain would disappear for awhile but only to return with a vengence. The pain is most pronounced in the morning, either by waking me up or immediately after I wake up. I wonder if this could be due to toxins accumulation during the night? For the last two months, I seems to have perpetual pain on my right thighs and the upper legs just below the buttocks. I have to do constant self massage to ease the pain and my fear is that this could be metastasis of the bones. If this really happens, then its game over.

The lymph node on my left collar bone so far is stable, the size has remain about the same size since discovery. However, it is cause me great discomfort and some pain around my neck and shoulder area. For the past week, I had a few bouts of coughs and hopefully it will not develop into full coughs. My throat is a little dry for the last few days and I think it's time to do the hydrogen peroxide ear cleansing again. I have reduced my enema to 1 time a day for the next coming week because I suspect I may have develop hernia. This is to allow the muscles around the anus to recover.

An emotional week.
