Thanks for the update, Rose! I've been there and done that, although your pain seems like it was much more severe than mine.
I wish you well on exploring alternative treatments. I will be trying to take better care of myself, too, in the future.
Don't give up hope! It's been over a year since my attempted resection, and I have stage IV, but I don't feel any worse than before the resection attempt. It's just this nasty cancer wants to grow. Die, cancer, die!
