Pancreatic cancer just diagnosed - asking for advice
I am new to this forum and would like some advice.
My wife was recently, 2-3 weeks, ago in the hospital treated for a blood clot in her neck and arm.
Doctors ran many tests to try to explain how the clot was started.
A CT scan discovered a large mass on the neck area of the pancreas, about 6x5x4cm and also very close to an artery.
Possibly spread to nearby lymph nodes. Doctor says not candidate for surgery.
Scheduled for biopsy next Friday, followed by chemo if malignant(which is very probable).
Went to see a natural doctor, and suggested low-GI diet.
In addition gave her the following supplements:
- colostrum for leaky gut (1 tablespoon twice a day)
- liposomal vitamin C (1g/day)
- Vitamin D3-K2 lipospray.(3 spray a day)
- AHCC, ImmunoKinoko (2 caps , 3 times a day).
My wife complains about being full after eating very little, also painful in intestine area of stomach.
What do you guys suggest for immediate treatment?
I am so sorry to hear about these challenges. Those from natural doctor sound good but I would do more.
When the chemo comes, I would adapt but until that point I would consider the following approach https://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/shutting-down-the-power-house-of-cancer/ witha focuss on the fermentation inhibitors. More fermentation inhibitors are here and one of the latest I found and very relevant is Ritonavir https://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/drugs-and-supplements-that-block-fermentation-and-help-fight-cancer/
Please also read this summary https://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/summary-of-this-website/
Also, I would strongly consider this option https://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/community/pancreatic-cancer/stage-4-pancreatic-cancer-to-complete-remission-using-paricalcitol-and-hydroxychloroquine-next-to-chemo/#post-1756
I can imagine there are many new terms used here as you may be new to this field, so if you have questions please let me know.
Daniel thank you for responding!
Yes it very confusing, and knowing that this disease develops so fast, I want the best shot at it from the start.
I understand the standard treatment is FOLFIRINOX first.
However the physician specializing in allergy and asthma did not start with FOLFIRINOX, but rather gemcitabine and capecitabine
Is that because he was considered stage 4?
I will definitely suggest all those extra treatments with the chemo.
Would they work as effectively with FOLFIRINOX?
So right now, what can I quickly get and take before chemo to inhibit further growth?
That list was long and confusing, perhaps metformin?
Tomorrow we will start with daily coffee enemas.
I read more from page "Shutting down the power house of cancer"
I am ordering Berberine instead of Metformin.
Probably order a blood glucose meter and start tracking it.
Since I am in Michigan, with access to vitamin C IV form, I will probably start that.
I am not sure what dose and how often.
I am ordering Omega 3, but a little hesitant to use strong dose since she is on blood thinner Eliquis.
Monday she will also start taking Essiac tea.
Last ordering broccoli sprout extract.
From reading her blood test, everything is in normal range except Glucose level which is fluctuating between 110 and 130.
There are some oncologists starting with the Gemcitabine combos and more often with Folfirinox.
I would at least consider starting with D3 10.000ui/day, Curcumin at least 5g/day (but take care with blood thinning effects), Omega 5g or more/day (but take care with blood thinning effects), Quercetin min 3g/day, Atorvastatin 40-80mg/day, Metformin 1-15g/day, Mebendazole min 200mg/day. When chemo starts, thsi has to be adapted.
Essiac tea and Broccoli extract are indeed good.
For Metformin, you can ask your GP since the blood glucose level is too high.
I would also consider this https://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/community/pancreatic-cancer/recent-patent-on-combination-of-antagonists-of-dopamine-receptors-glycolysis-inhibitor-and-a-cholesterol-lowering-agent-to-inhibit-the-growth-of-pancreatic-cells/
But if you start with Gemcitabine please make sure you discuss with your doctor to incorporate this approach https://www.cancertreatmentsresearch.com/community/pancreatic-cancer/stage-4-pancreatic-cancer-to-complete-remission-using-paricalcitol-and-hydroxychloroquine-next-to-chemo/#post-1756 If he is not willing, contact the author and patient who wrote that paper. I am sure he will suggest a place where they are willing to support with that protocol. I would not lose time and would already today start acting on that.
Thank you Daniel,
I ordered all natural supplements you described will be here Tuesday.
Texted her doctor about getting prescription for Atorvastatin, Doxycycline and Mebendazole immediately.
So one way is no chemo drugs, US patent correct?
Other way is Gemcitabine chemo with supporting drugs like US doctor.
I will try to contact the author and patent Stephen Bigelsen.
So if you had one shot at it which one would you do?
Actualy, the US patent was combining those drugs with Gemcitabine. So for the highest effectiveness it was combo with chemo.
Thanks again Daniel, I must have missed that part.
As I read more I get a better understanding of the treatments and why.
So the overall thinking is that current chemo treatments can attack outer shell of tumor very nicely but it doesn't seem to attack now exposed inner part of it, these cells will now continue to spread and even worse, does not seem to respond to current chemo treatments. That's what the other drugs and supplements are for.
After several setbacks my wife is finally starting chemo tomorrow.
Today she is getting an external feeding tube put into intestine area bypassing stomach.
Tumor is pressing on exit of stomach and won't empty correctly.
So my question is if anyone has experience with feeding drugs and supplements via external feeding tube?
Could it be an advantage for the natural supplements to be fed directly bypassing stomach acids?
How does this affect dosage of supplements, lower dosage perhaps if going directly into intestine?
