Hello all.  Another triple negative, stage II withfocal chondroid metaplasia and still in neoadjuvant therapy.  I'm absolutely not opposed to going beyond western medicine therapies and quite strongly believe in alternative approaches as support treatment which could make all the difference.  I personally have my own proof and believe strongly in broccoli sprout extract in gel form which is easy to obtain. Blueberries are proven to be a good food to take for BCs.  Believe you me, I'll be researching alternatives like crazy with this aggressive cancer with such a poor prognosis. 

However, before you run out and buy Suzanne Somers' "Knockout" book, I'd suggest you read:

http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/index.php/suzanne-somers

Sorry I couldn't make this link hot.  It explains the reality of SS' own BC therapy.  It's easy to make claims when you don't practice exactly what you preach.  Please make your own informed decision though.  This is only one website and who knows if it has real merit or not.

Wishing all of us with MCB a lot of luck.  We need it.  The doctors know so little and mine at MD Anderson downplays its significance.  Once treatment is completed it's up to me to take matters into my own hands.

Hi adgirl5.

Nice to hear from you..How long have you been in tx ..what treatment are you using?

I read SS's book on bio hormones and went on them asap, paid out of my own pocket.. I must say I question now what I did (hormones) even thought I am TN...I guess there is always going to be questions......

I do not think we can compare her cancer to ours..Not meaning that alternative approaches do not work...I am also seeking them out, but at this point, I will do chemo first...i like all of us have struggled with do or not do...We just make  a decision..I guess?

Have a wonderful weekend...

Hello Missy, I have lived in TX since 1984,  My naturopathic said I should not use Bio identical hormones because I had already had breast cancer.

I am using the Budwig Diet.  I do not plan to use chemotherapy again but the the Budwig Diet.   My new Oncologist said there is absolutely no proof that chemo or radiation will make any difference with metaplastic carcinoma. My first oncologist had me take chemo and 3 years later the same cancer came back in the same place.  I changed oncologists and the new oncologist said that the chemo I had taken failed or I would not have the same cancer again.

It is a difficult decision to know what to do but with this cancer,   I have decided to take alternative routes.   I am considering buying a sauna to sweat toxins out of my body on a daily basis and am doing three different cleanses.  I don't know if any of it will matter, but there is research to show the Budwig Diet is much more effective than chemo and radiation plus does no harm. Best of wishes, Contia

You are so correct about oncologists knowing so little about metaplastic carcinma. I have not read  any other of Susan Somers books so do not know what you are talking about but the book Knockout interviews about 12-15 alternative doctors and they tell how they have cured cancer with alternative treatments. What is interesting to me is that so many doctors say they have been successful with so many different approaches. So, this book is not about her.  It also tells you how to contact a number of alternative doctors.

Thanks so much for the info about Somers book and the alternative treatment content.  I was under the wrong impression about this book I guess.  I will pick up a used copy from Amazon.  For me, and all of us.. the more information the better.

I'll have my final of 6 rounds of FEC on Monday if my blood counts permit.  My mass grew 41% after 3 weekly neoadjuvant treatments on Taxol,  so was quickly switched and realized a 90% reduction once we started FEC (this is all by ultrasound).

After the 2nd treatment, I showed a 33% shrinkage and from there it's been very slow-go- now with very little reduction.  I'm also BRCA positive.  If all goes well I'll have a skin sparing BMX March 30th.

I'm wishing all my metaplastic sisters the very best- no matter what treatment/s you decide are best for you.

Thanks again for pointing out the book references!
