    I know what you mean by this being a rich man’s disease. I am not a rich man! Just the co-pay of my xeloda $571 every 3 weeks is putting a strain on our budget! So it is $24000 !! That is ridiculous plus having to fly there & stay in a hotel. OMG absolutely ridiculous. I guess they think because this cancer has no real cure they think we might sell our soul to pay to see them. Makes me angry.

    I have had some pain in the liver during chemo. I also had some when I had my radioembolization. I hope it is a good pain meaning it is dying! The tumor!

    Waiting does seem to be what us cc patients go through. My tumor was seen in Sept. a year ago when I was in the hospital for diverticulitis. I didn’t have any treatment until Feb. 2013! 5 months!! I had to have a CT scan then a biopsy & then after diagnosis confirmed that it was cc I had to wait for a referral to see my oncologist then she referred me to go to UCI where she thought they could treat me because of cc being so rare. I saw a surgeon at UCI but he said because of the size & location of my tumor surgery wouldn’t be possible. So he sent me to the radiology dept. where I had 2 radioembolization treatments. After that didn’t shrink the tumor I was sent back to my regular oncologist where I am now on my 2nd type of chemo! We only have an HMO so waiting for all the authorizations has been difficult. Because this is so rare I think most doctors don’t know what to do. That is why seeing a doctor at a Cancer center hospital is the best route to take.

    Bless you all ! I had a better day yesterday afternoon. We took a little drive up to see my son & daughter-in-law and 2 of our grandsons. They always lift me up!! Then came home & crashed & then 2 friends came over to watch football & have pizza. It was good to get out! I am feeling so much better today & getting ready to go to church and reconnect with some friends & GOD!! It is good to sing praises! Even in the midst of troubles. I do have a great cancer support group! I have it all but still get in the pits & I dumped on you guys but knowing you are going through it too helps more than you know. Actually you do know!!!
    The one thing I need to do is get out & walk more.
    Bless you all so much!
    Love,

    I love your name! Wordman! A man of God’s Word!!! I am sorry you are battling this disease. I am on the same road. My hope is in our Great Physician. He knows more about this awful cancer than any of the doctors & will lead you to the right treatments & the right doctors. I pray you will be comforted by all those who I am sure you have comforted at your church.

    I am using cannabis oil or tincture. I don’t know if it is shrinking my tumor but it helps with nausea. My doctor also gave me a prescription for marinol which is a synthetic approved by the FDA. I wouldn’t know where you could get the oil. My daughter got mine from a licensed med marijuana place.

    I had 2 rounds of Gem/Cis and had to stop because my platelets were too low also. Now I am on Oxaliplatin & Xeloda. I am on round 2 of this now. We just have to keep on trying & hope that it works!

    Here is the article:

    Amazing Frozen Lemons

    Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste?
    Simple.. place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater,and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your foods.
    Sprinkle it to your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, cereals, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes, whisky…the list is endless.
    All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore.
    Now that you’ve learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.
    What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?
    Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting.
    But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.
    It’s also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.
    So place your washed lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That’s the lemon secret! Better late than never, right? The surprising benefits of lemon!
    ***** Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.
    Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.
    You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy.
    How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?
    As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.
    You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc… It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors.
    This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.
    The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas…
    The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells.
    And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.
    So, give those lemons a good wash, freeze them and grate them. Your whole body will love you for it!!!!!

    i am using the Frankincense oil. It is a pure essential oil & can’t hurt anything. Today I got a message from a friend that if you freeze a whole lemon & grate it all after it is frozen & put it on everything you eat & drink that it is a cancer cure because of the vitamin C.
