Terminal Cancer Has Gone !!!

I thought I would post an update on my husband's progress with stage 4 terminal cancer.

Yesterday we got my husband's MRI, PET scan test and the blood results and the Oncologist was amazed to say that there is no cancer anywhere in his body at the moment. The doctor said that he could not have thought this possible after initially seeing my husband's CRC with over 12 liver cancer lesions, 18 months ago.

If you read my past posts over the last 18 months you will see that we have tried everything possible to fight the cancer with Liver resection, Chemo, diet, natural anti cancer foods, exercise, pure water, sunshine, fresh air and prayer.

There is every chance that the cancer may return in the future and for this reason we will always have our anti cancer juices in the morning and afternoon.

I want to help and give support to anyone suffering from cancer. We hope that the liver tissue given from my husband's Liver Resection to the Australian Tissue Bank can give scientists further information for them to make future discoveries in cancer research.

Best wishes Judy.

Thanks Jeanne, I'm glad that you made a recovery from your stage 4 stomach cancer. It's good for others to also hear about successful outcomes. Wishing you continued good health in the future. Judy.

Hi Judy,

i am glad to hear that your husband is doing well. My husband has just been diagnosed with liver cancer. I have been doing as much research as I can and found your posts. I was really interested as we are in Sydney. They have said he is inoperable as he has 8 tumors. I have also contacted Bellmorr as my husband like hers has had treatment for Hep C in the past. Any advise you can give would be great. Can you advise which specialsts and hospitals you have dealt with in Melbourne as I am not so happy with the attitude here in Sydney. They are only going to maybe offer TACE or a tablet once the results of his biopsy from alst Tuesday are back.

Regards Dianne

That's wonderful news--but was there cirrhosis scarring? I worried about that while doing the Pegolated Interferon-anti-virals 'combo' (I had three series of the treatment) because I knew if my HepC was 'cured', my liver would nonetheless remained scarred, and my liver function would remain sub-standard. My viral count did reach zero--but that was when the three lesions appeared--I was one of the lucky ones who got a liver transplant (9 years ago) so both my concerns were relieved. What I failed to anticipate was that the CNS damage caused by my toxic blood was Also something that a 'cure' would not alleviate. 

Because of this, I have no short-term memory and my ability to focus on a problem is almost non-existent--to the point where I crashed my car because I got distracted and forgot I was driving! 

So, my big worry is this--if I was granted disabled status by Social Security because of liver cancer ( I was at most a few months from death at that point--a virtual walking vegetable that couldn't walk very far) and I have reached ten years on disability, will they cancel my status because I've lost the liver cancer? I mean, I'm not gonna die of liver failure--but I still can't be a reliable employee at any real job.

I'm concerned over the legality of my situation, and I'm concerned that I can't be 'of use' in any capacity. I realize this is far different from your husband's situation, but there are so few people who would really understand whatr I'm talking about,  thought I'd give it a shot.

thanks for your patience,

chris dunn

Chris,  I understand your concern because I have a similar one.  I have no evidence of disease also, three years, but I feel i have become incompacitated due to chemotherapy what it did to my brain and my nerve endings which impacts my ability to deal with cold weather and walking and standing too long etc.  I am afraid to ask because i wouldn't want to start anything.  But I am almost 62, so maybe I could retire soon anyway.

How old are you?
