Health Status @ 8 January 2011

This is my first health status posting for the year 2011. I am glad I made it this far. 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. Confirmed that it has not spread to the live. All other organs are also normal.

Latest scan on 26 November 2010 showed slight improvement in the kidney tumor (shrunk from 15cm to 11.4cm) but the nodes on the lungs were also a little larger. In the August 2010 scan, it was the other way around.

X-rays scan on 26 September 2010 over the scapula (the bone of the shoulder), pelvic and upper back areas shows no obvious bony metastasis.

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

I have so far rejected the recommendation.

a. Gerson Therapy
a1. Coffee Enema
Following Gerson Clinic's recommendation of three enema daily and alternative day castor oil enema. Due to the strength of the coffee, my enema formula is 4oz coffee, 8oz camomile and 12oz of water.

a2. Nutrition Diet
All fruits and vegetables mentioned are organic.
i. Juicing - 13 fruit and vegetables juices a day beginning around 8am and ending 7pm. 1 orange, 5 apple+carrot, 3 carrot and 4 green vegetable juices every hourly.
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 (once a week) is consumed. Hippocrates soup are also prepared every other day for daily consumption.
3. Supplements - K-salt, niacin, lugol solution, pancreatin, pepsin, Q10, Inflamezyme, Milk Tistle, Colostrum. Thyroid, Liver and B12 injections daily.
4. Others - Rye bread, papaya, guavas, oranges and bananas are consumed at regular intervals.

b. Homeopathy Medicine
Consulting Doctor: DR AU Ramakrishnan MBBS, PhD, Chennai, India (
Local Consultant: Vishuddi Lee
Treatment Started: 6 November 2009.
Consulting: Once every two months in Singapore. Next appointment 7 January 2011.
Reaction: No further reactions observed other than mouth ulcers every now and then.
Stauts: Suspended since 3 December 2009.

c. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Clinic: CA Care, Subang Jaya Center (
Main Consultant: Dr Chris Teo
Treatment Started: 27 August 2010.
Medication: Capsule A+B, 4 capsules 3 time daily. Lungs, liver and kidney herbs to be taken once a day. C-tea to be taken throughout the day.
Reaction: Stomach a little uncomfortable after taking Capsule A and the herbs. Increase frequency in night urine.
Status: Suspended since 3 December 2009.

d. Oxygen Therapy
Started using a personal oxygen generator with effect from 8 March 2010 about 1 hour in the evening, 20 minutes per session. Richer oxygen does help in controlling the growth of the tumors. It also reduces fatigue.

e. Zhineng Qigong
Started practicing qigong on 11 March 2010. Attend classes five times a week from 6.30am to 8am. As the time clashes with my therapy time, I have two choices, either I join another group or practice on my own.

Health Status
Two weeks have passed since I cam back from USA/Mexico. I have not taken my weight this week but I believe it should be around 65kgs give or take 1 kg.

The last two weeks have seen some body pains but I am feeling much better now. My mouth ulcers have also disappeared. My food intake has gone down as I don't feel so hungry all the time. But I have not been eating well the last two weeks, often unable to finish my food portions. I have just developed some mild coughing, nothing serious at the moment.

I have been sleeping much better now. I guess I am more comfortable with a firm bed.

I have also decided to stop two complementary therapies, at least the TCM for the moment. I will not continue with the Homeopathy therapy.

I have been thinking of spending a week or two at Cameron Highlands, just before the Chinese New Year which falls on 3 February 2011. I like the coolness and fresh air of the mountains.

A roller coaster of ups and downs for the past two weeks. Glad to be alive.


  1. - Great :)
    - Chang I wish you the very best ..Happy New Year
    - Am surfing to help my father get out of cancer and here I am witnessing a young fighter :) thumbs up buddy
    - Prayers with you

  2. Awareness is the main key to fight against cancer. Most of the people are not aware of the symptoms and this leads to detection of cancer in severe stage where else early detection may save life, not only in kidney cancer its true about any case of cancer.

  3. I want to share this video with you & everyone with 'untreatable' cancer.
