    i've never had cancer. my husband had kidney cancer nine years ago and it was huge but removed laporoscopically. Then a year ago I knew he had thyroid cancer because I could see the neck lump but he didn't buy it. His sons did, though, and nagged him until he had it removed sept 10. .followed by eight weeks of nightmares, ICU visits galore, lots of Propofol and a broken femur. One of the reasons I believe chemo and r...

        I am so very sorry about your poor mom. To answer your question , my father went through some of this and passed within the month. Maybe three weeks.  Again; I am very sorry and I wish her Peace.

           My opinion is stop the poisons. He has had 35 rad treatments but if you had gone to a different doc, he would have recommended 25 or 45. Radiation is not an exact science. It's trial and error. Same with chemo. Get a second and third opinion. How can you "cure" anyone with poisons? That doesn't make sense. If you stopped the rads and chemo you'd have your husband back. I'd rather die than submit to this barbari...

             He didn't care who did it. Said it wasn't a complicated surgery. Wrong. The surgery itself went fine UNTIL a large hematoma developed where the lump had been. It was like the lump was still there! So the doctor said she would come back in five hours to drain the hematoma. Oh, how he wanted to come home. After she did it, he stood up , fell and broke his femur! What followed that disaster was 3 weeks in the hosp...

                My husband, 73, looks so good after his weightloss and has no discomfort. The one thing I do notice is his eating HALF his dinner. I guess this is the beginning of eating 1/3 of your dinner? Maybe he has a stomach tumor pressing on his stomach but there's no pain. But there are other mechanisms that make them lose weight.   What he doesn't eat the dogs and I finish off. He swears he still weighs 240...

                   Good point. They are closed now but I will tell my husband that we should call the endocrinologist (she has three offices full of patients) Monday morning; thank you so much! ps that is another point that puzzles us: why has not one doctor ever sent him to an oncologist??

                    Ensure is a good idea but if she wants to go for high calories I'd do milkshakes instead. Then you could always buy him liquid vitamins . Anything extremely fattening is good to slow weightloss. One reason ensure is used so much is the tv advertising. Then when u read the ingredients it's mostly sugar but it's not as fattening as a hot fudge sundae.

                       I think of Noni juice as being a very healthy juice like almost as good for you as fresh blueberries in a blender with raw spinach. Not strong enough, in my opinion, as green juicing and avoiding all meat and dairy. Did it not begin as a multi level  marketing company? As I said, I'm sure it's good for anyone but after many rounds of brain radiation, I'd trust a vegan diet much, much more for efficacy .&nb...
