Anyway, I will be sending my blood test results to my doctor in New York so that he can prescribe the dosage for the metronomic chemo treatment for me. Metronomic chemotherapy is not the same as conventional chemotherapy not only in terms of the methodology of treatment but also how the treatment works. I hope to start the metronomic chemo treatment as early as possible in the hope to control the lung and bone metastasis. Since I am having trouble getting cyclophosphamide, I will have to request my doctor from New York to prescribe the medication and then ship to me. As for IL-2, I will contact my friend more more information on how to bring the drug back to Malaysia from China.
Reading all the available alternative therapies from the various sources in the Internet does give cancer patients some hope. However, the more difficult part of the treatment is where to get that drug and/or supplement? In my case, I was lucky because of a reader from Hong Kong introduced me to her doctor in New York where I could get some help. But if you are on your own, it can be really frustrating. I have been asking around and all I get are blank answers. This morning, I received a text message from a reader and she sent me a link and told me that she don't understand what the article says and she felt really hopeless. She wanted to me explain to her what that article meant so that she could learn something from the article to help her 82 year old mother who is suffering from cancer. I can understand this feeling because I have been there before. Sometimes, I just wanna to give up, throw in the towel. The frustration can turn into despair and a feeling of hopelessness if not dealt with correctly. Why must there be challenges on every step of the way?
