My mom was diagnosed in July 2003 of unknown primary mets to the liver. There is a large mass in her pelvic region (where her uterus would be). They have never biopsy it only the liver (they know it is estrogen based). This mass pushes on her kidney and she had to have a stint put in the uritory sp?. Just recently she had it replaced. The doctor put a larger stint in hoping they would not have to keep replacing it. But this time the pain was not released like the first time. She is actually in more pain (like it is in wrong). The doctor told her that what they need to do is put a tube from her kidney to her side with a bag. I think he is jumping the gun here and needs to see how the stint is put in. The major question I have is if this mass is causing so much trouble for her why won't they take it out? And why won't they even biopsy it to see if it is the primary. I heard that surgery could cause the cancer to spread much faster. Is this true? Most doctors have said what is the point it already has mets to the liver. What do you guys think?

Fucoidan

Hey. I don't know the answer to your question but I have to tell you about this and it will help your mom. I have been doing a lot of reasearch on fucoidan and it has killed cancer cells more than once. I know a woman who was on hospice and is living now years later. I used to have a tumor underneath my chin and now it's gone. I joined this website so I can help people by informing them about this because I know how much it helps people with cancer. I drive myself nuts because I want to tell as many people as I can. Look on the National Library of Medicine www.pubmed.gov and look up the word fucoidan. You can look up fucoidan cancer to narrow it down. They sell it in Japan for really expensive. I don't sell it but I have a website where you can order it from the company. I say you have nothing to lose. cristina.limupro.com The fucoidan is found in the limu moui sea plant. The limu itself does not cure anything but it provides your body the nutrients that it needs to help itself that we do not get in everyday foods, and it contains a lot of fucoidan.

I don't have a medical answer for you. But all I know is many people are getting amazing results when they take glyconutrients. Its a plant based cellular and immune support product.

You can check out glycostory.com/aaron for testimonies and more information. 

I hope you find the answer and resolution for the patient.

God bless!!

Jamie,

You need to get a second opinion.  Are you sure she has Mesothelomia?  If so, call and talk with Dr. Brian Loggie's office.  It sounds like hers has spread,  That does not mean you should give up.  I understand why the doctor feels this way.  The diseas is not curable, but if she is a candidate for surgery, it could prolong her life.  And give her much better quality.  Theresa

I am someone who believes doctors have lost their way when it comes to treating patients. we have put so much trust in them and what they do that they cannot go wrong. Seek a second opinion. Try natural alternatives to surgery in the meanwhile. Your mom may find better relief. Check out this website for the alternative I suggest. jwtpowerfuljuice.gomangosteen.net  It reall works!!!

Dear Jamie

I am so sorry for what your mom is going through.  I do understand- my mom was diagnosed with adreanal cancer in 2004- and recently passed away 12-06.  It is a dam roller coaster, as far as your question about it spreading, that was one of the major questions we had for my mom's doctor, because she had 3 surgeries before her death.  He told us it is a myth, cancer cells are minute, having surgery doesn't make them grow any faster. I also asked 4 other doctors the same question and they said the same thing.   If your not happy with this doctor, go for another opinion, mom should not have to be in so much pain.  Putting a bag may be permanent, that is another question you should ask.  Did they offer chemo, or radation.  I know people who have had liver cancer and some treatments slowed it down. The main thing is for your mom not to have pain, so what ever it takes that is your goal. Some doctor have no bed side manner, find a doctor who is good and compassionate.  Good luck

Marie
