Did you find the mistletoe injections and Vitamin C helpful? Did your husband have intraveneous Vitamin C?
A naturopath physician we visited suggested Mistletoe injections and intraveneous Vitamin C. However, an integrated medicine doctor at Sloan Kettering advised against both. She said the mistletoe can be dangerous and people have dropped dead on it. As for the intraveneous Vitamin C, she said there is no proof it helps.
I have been thinking though of trying these for my mom. However, having to go a few times a week for the Vitamin C could be rather tiring for her. I just don't know what is the best thing to do for her.
Her oncologist suggested trying Tarceva, a targeted medicine, which she thinks my mom may be able to tolerate better than she did the Gemzar. However, there are side effects with the Tarceva as well. I don't want to do something that could make my mother sick but I want to try something for her if it could help her.
My mom's cancer markers keep going up and last week were 15,000.
Recently, the spreading of the cancer is causing a blockage against the ureter preventing urine to come out of her left kidney to the bladder as it should. For the time being nothing is being done for this unless it becomes problematic.
Except for the tiredness she is feeling O.K.
