My wife has squqmous non small cell cancer in one lung that has not spread but is inoperable. After 2 rounds of Chemo and Radiation that seemed to accomplish very little, we started alternate therapy about 2 months ago. The alternate therapy seems to be shrinking her tumor.She is currently taking artemisinin, graviola, flaxseed oil, ellagic acid,garlic, vitamin D3, coral calcium, cessium, selenium, and pomegranite juice. We are about to order Protocel. Does anybody know if any of these vitamins or supplements she is taking will conflict with the Protocel?
My wife has it also but contained so far within her lung. Her pain was caused by the tumor putting pressure on her ulna nerve creating excruciating pain from her shoulder to her fingertips. It was so bad she was hospitalized for 3 weeks hooked up to a morphine pump.They finally shrunk the tumor enough using radiation to alleviate the pressure on the nerve and was released from the hospital. She is now taking 15mg. of oxycodone 6 times a day, and 10mg methadone 3 times a day.It keeps the pain pretty much under control but that stuff is highly addictive. If she survives she would have to go thru detox to get off of it. The bad part is they have to keep increasing the doseage because your body gets used to it. Ask your new Dr. about Neurontin. It's a nerve block pill that really helps. You can also have an anesthesiologist perform a nerve block procedure where they inject alchohol into the nerve that is sending the pain signal to the brain. It deadens the nerve for about 6 months and then they can do it again.My wife was going to have that done but the cancer had eaten up 2 of her ribs and without the ribs there, they couldn't locate the nerve. The main thing is to kill the pain. My wife went thru everthing they could think of to prescribe, and the combination of Oxycodone, Methadone, and Neurontin has worked the best.
