UPDATE: April 21, 2014. Went to see my oncologist today to get the results of Thursdays MRI. It was mostly good news. Not as over-the-top as I hoped for, but it was still mostly good news.
My “Preformance Status” was excellent. If I was any other person without liver tumors, I’d be in perfect health. My Karnofsky rating is about 90%, my Zubrod is Zero. So, basically, I’m in perfect health except for the tumors in my liver.
My liver still has the tumors in it. The largest tumor has doubled in volume from 21.4 cc to 52 cc, but my liver function is unimpaired and functioning better than most peoples livers. My liver is not enlarged or otherwise compromised. This is very good news.
Apparently, due to the efficacy of my natural alternative therapy, the urgency for starting more drastic measures like chemo is somewhat abated for now. This gives us the opportunity to leverage my strength and undergo the surgery to reconnect my colon. Over the next week we’ll be scheduling this procedure. I’ll recover quickly, though, this time. Should only take 4-5 weeks before I’m getting around well again.
I’ll continue my therapy for the next 8 weeks and we’ll check on my liver again after that. I plan to double down on my therapy and do whatever I can to cleanse and improve my liver in the process. I’m not sure what that will be, but I’ll do the research and get it going.
I have mixed emotions about this, but I’m encouraged that my healing therapy has worked well enough to surprise my oncologist. At first, it was, “we gotta start chemo asap” and now it’s, “let’s continue with your therapy for another 8 weeks, reconnect your colon and see what happens.” Now, my prognosis is much better than when I started.
Nobody said it was going to be easy or quick. I have always believed that my approach is a long term lifestyle based cure. As such, it’s going to be a long haul. I’m sure I’ll be doing my therapy for the next year or more.
Today proves that you can take back your own health and restore your immune system and your strength. It just takes a solid approach, a commitment to the plan, and a daily diligence to make better choices every day!
