      Been quiet for a month as i'm really not sure whats happening with my dad. One oncologist gives him a death sentence, now the other one he saw says he will monitor him every 3 months, that treatment is not needed as of yet. The first oncologist did all the scans/xrays - which showed hot spots, he then did a MRI to plot for radiation on my dads spine..when that came back it showed it was not metastatic cancer...he t...

        Hi Ray, The MRI showed that there is NO bone mestatses in his spine. Next they will MRI his ribs. To check if its there. this is where they picked up the hot spots.

Im hoping its not there aswell, that its just a fracture or injury in the ribs. is it even possible...

            thanks Ray. I have taken him to a homeopath, have him on Vit C iv drips. The homeopath is putting together a vitamin schedule for him. I typed up a replica of Dan Goldstones schedule to see if he could include most of those for me. All depending whats available in South Africa. ive excluded foods that are bad for him..just need to get my head around this all...not sure if you ever do.

                      My dad had his first appointment with the oncologist yesterday. quite honest, i wasnt expecting such bad news. The cancer is in his lower spine and ribs. Dr said its about quality of life now not a cure.. im still tryign to get my head around this all. taking him for a MRI today. He said he will radiate the area that hurts him, which is his spine as your body can only have so much radiation. then from what i u...
