Baileysmom97's Recent CancerCompass Activity

    My girl Bailey did have surgery to try and remove the tumor. Everything looked good on the ultrasound but when the surgeon got in there, the tumor was not really where they thought it was.  At that point it had gotten too close to one of the ureters to be able to remove it with good margins and not doing damage to the ureter.  We decided to put uretal stents in and that was that.  When doing the surger...

      Neoplasene is formulated from bloodroot extract, halogens and water.  It ws initially used directly on cancerous tissue with success but some animals and even humans have taken it orally to kill the cancer cells.  There was a dog named Shelby who took it for about 8 or 9 months and her TCC disappeared from the bladder.  Look up Buck Mountain Botanicals and check out their case histories.  There ar...

        I would maybe go for a second opinion.  I tried everything with Bailey, meds, chemo, even surgery...I only wish I had done it sooner.  Initailly the doctors all said don't do surgery, it's too risky taking a chance of spreading cancer cells throughout the body.  I was at UPENN teaching hospital and spoke with one of the surgeons who felt that they could contain that risk so I decided to go ahead.  ...

          One other thing I would like to mention is to watch what food and treats we give.  My girl Bailey never spent a lot of time on the lawn, but one thing I question is that she loved Dingo bones (rawhide with jerky wrapped in between).  She devoured those and I figured they were good for her teeth. Well, when I discovered they were made in China I stopped them immediately.  China now has such a reputation...

            I believe Shelby passed away in June of that year due to other causes.  I had Bailey also on the Neoplasene but she wasn't on it long enough to tell if it was working.  With Bailey, I don't believe it was the cancer that did her in, but rather kidney issues.

              It shouldn't matter whether it's liquid or capsule.  With a smaller dog, a pharmacy can have the piroxicam compounded for you in the correct dosage.  My dog weighed about 12 pounds and I believe she was given a 2.5mg capsule of piroxicam once a day?

                If you click on the post titled "Mia" (which was posted earlier today) it will take you to a more than 300 page thread.  It's a lot of reading but everything you have asked about has been covered in numerous posts.   My dog lived more than 2 years after diagnosis, but her tumor was very small when it was discovered.  I also believe it was kidney issues that did her in rather than the cancer. Some dogs...

                  Look up Buck Mountain Botanicals.  They have had some success stories using Neoplasene, especially with nasal issues.

                    There is the possibility of putting stents in the urethra and also the ureters (which convey the urine from the kidneys to the bladder).  It's not cheap but it should keep those pathways open.  Bailey had the stents put into the ureters to keep them from being blocked by any tumor growth and other dogs have had stents put into the urethra and have done quite well.  It might be worth looking into if all...

                      Sorry to hear that the tumor grew.  You could try and have a stent put in to try and keep the urethra open.  It's not very complicated but will cost some money.  Since she's feeling well otherwise, it may give her some relief and more time.
