If you don't have the chemo this time is there a chance of some further down the line? Or are they gonna refuse it if you continue to take the alt meds?
I would need another X-Ray to know if the tumours have further shrunk or not. I don't think they can in all fairness refuse me later down the line. The problem becomes if I get to sick to have it later. That is what they keep saying to me, if I leave it too long (whatever too long means) then it may not be possible to give it!
Ok, fair enough, but a counter argument to that could be.... you have been using these alt meds and an improvement in your vitality, improved bloods, and a marked reduction in tumour size has happened.
So therefore, if the alt meds become no longer effective, there is a huge chance that if they are giving you regular check ups, they may be able to see that they are returning and then you could have the option again. And as you have improved recently then there is a good chance that IF an increase in tumour size happens, it still may be smaller than what you were facing a few weeks ago?
So, the chemo may have less cancer to fight?
But oh flip, I just realised that may also mean more healthy cells may be zapped.
It's a damn good job I don't work in the medical field!
I seem to be a bit crap at this "Giving advice" malarkey!
