Topic: Healthy eating and juicing
I had my liver resection 8 months ago and so far so good. My last CT and labwork all looked fine.
I don't go back for another CT till May. I did not have any chemo or radiation after the surgery due to complications. Here is what I am doing right now to keep as healthy as possible.
I am no longer working at my stressful job. I have started eating healthier. I bought a juicer and love it. I never realized how unhealthy my diet was before. I try to eat mostly fruit, vegetables and lean meats. I eat sugar when I crave it, but not nearly as much as before. I also have been taking milk thistle every day as well as something called systemic enzymes. They are supposed to help with inflammation and I feel like they do work. I have what I feel is scar tissue pain at my incision site and I find that I feel better when I exercise and stretch my stomach and side muscles. I have also been doing a lot more praying and am back in touch with God. I am feeling really good about life in general and hope to have a long and healthy future. I made a facebook page to talk and write about cancer related topics. Feel free to post on it if you have anything to say! The address is: http://www.facebook.com/Cancerfreedebtfree
