Do whatever you need to do.
I use food as medicine. I rarely cook anything. I use herbs and greens for the vitamin and mineral riches they impart.
I believe the drugs strip us of the nutrients we need to thrive.
April 2016 made 8 years for final treatment of chemo/radiation. I did refuse the second week of chemo which I know I'd never made it. I must say I am truly blessed and good thoughts to all. I have never recovered or gotten my life back to the one I knew but I am here and that's what matters. I must say the pain it has left me with has to be the worse, neuropathy. It just keeps getting worse and developed bursitis in the hip area where the radiation entered. Has anyone ever gotten better with the neuropathy? I've tried all available treatments that I am aware of but it seems just increasing pain medication helps the most, even though it does not relieve the total pain.
Has anyone that had anal cancer had abnormal celks with a pap smear that turned out to be cancer?
No. I had a visible squamous cell carcinoma behind my anus. Luckily, despite being 13 years in the growing, it did not ever go anywhere else.
Is this what you are experiencing? I hope not but Im sorry if it is so. Under such a circumstance, I would first want a second pap smear performed.
A gf just had her uterus taken out because she had zero stage cancer cells. I am guessing that means that no tumor had forned. Although I supported her, I do not like her doctor and would not have made the same decision. I would have taken a wait and see approach and improved my eats and lessened my stress.
I saw her doctor once. I found him to be a pompous moron. I have radiation issues remaining from that lovliness. The doctor wanted to sell me a dilator set. I told him I already had one. Instead of coming up with an idea about how to improve the skin flex and quality, he proceeded to "show me" how to use a dilator by pantomiming hips thrusts with a dilator entering and then being pulled back. He went on with this for several minutes. Eventually, I interrupted his gyrations with the query "Anything else?" to which he replied "Try that at home and come back in six weeks." I got up and left. When the receptionist asked me if such and such a time would be convenient, I replied that it really did not matter and walked out of the office. When I drove my gf to her doctor's office, I found out that she had allowed this same moron to take her uterus. There was nothing to be said. I simply wish her well.
I wish you well too.
