    Jeannie An excellent post and the one alternative that I have read encouraging posts on is intravenous vitamin c. One thing I would like to mention though. Don't predict due to age because there are many factors to consider other than age. You can take someone who is 50 and they can be in worse physical shape than a 69 year old. I just attended my 50th high school reunion and I found it shocking to see the di...

      I found it difficult to be supportive because of her thoughts to end it all even before a prognosis. He was just diagnosed with a brain tumor and I'm sure was in need of support from his family! Even if we believe there isn't a reason to treat because the individual is going to lose the battle, unless a physician states as much, it really isn't an option to let someone die. ...........................................

            One last comment to Charles Somewhere one of us sure missed the point. My comment about too much time on her hands was in response to her first post and had absolutely nothing to do with her relating anything personal. Those little stories are what makes us family here - even though some we would prefer not to have as family - and I know of one that would prefer to have me in someone else's family. My comment w...

              Charles I thought I was being fair - I appreciate your sharing but I do know what HIPA is because being a Speech Pathologist I had to abide by them as well. However, I didn't violate any HIPA laws to learn about her medical problem - she wrote about it in the public forum on CC. Anyone who is a regular contributor knows how I knew that she had only posted twice - and what she wrote because it is out there for th...

                We have so much to be thankful for and unfortunately when someone is on a tough road for a while the need a gentle reminder that many others have it far tougher. Whenever I felt down I went to other sections like GBM and quickly realized just how blessed I was to have tonsil cancer. I know to some that sounds a little nutty but our cancer is curable rather than just treatable. GBM patients have less success with c...

                  My masters is in Communication Sciences and Disorders (Speech Pathology) and we shared the same classes through our Bachelor level with audiology students so we had a heavy concentration on A & P. Once cilia are damaged by any means, there is no way to undo the damage so after treatment would not help. On the other hand, while I have never heard of Vitamin E being given before or during treatment to reduce hearing ...

                    Touchoflight My objection to your post had nothing to do with your medical condition or your knowledge of hospitals. What angered me was your accounting if CTCA specifically when you have absolutely no personal experience or knowledge of them. For instance, you stated that we could get the same alternative treatments elsewhere cheaper but yet as someone who utilized acupuncture, Reike, mind and body, I can tell...

                      If you post under head and neck cancers you will get a lot of responses regarding tonsil cancer. The treatment generally consists of both chemo and radiation although there have been a few that had only radiation. If you have to be diagnosed with cancer, tonsil cancer is the cancer if choice because it is curable when caught early. The treatment is ROUGH - and I do mean rough but there is light at the end of the t...

                      Patient
                      Head and Neck Cancer, Tonsils Cancer

                      I am married and the mother of five grown children and 14 grandchildren. I was diagnosed in 2007 with SCC of the left tonsil and have been a member of CC since shortly after beginning treatment. I underwent chemo and radiation at CTCA in Zion, IL and received my last clean scan in Sept 2012. I found a wonderful support system on CC who really understood what I was going through and come back often to offer words of encouragement to those who are now traveling where I have been. I thank God daily for guiding me to CTCA and for guiding me to Cancer Compass. I had a tremendous support system with family and friends but there are not enough words to describe how I feel about my CC family other than to say I would not have made it through as well as I did without you.
