Topic: My Mom's treatment regimen
My mom was diagnosed in May 05. Had 1/3 of liver removed with clear margins and had not metastized. They followed up with radiation and Xeloda as preventative. Had run no tests until Nov 05. Tests showed 3 new tumors in liver. Was finishing with Xeloda in Dec 05. They said lets wait and see what happends. That was not good enough for us. Went for a 2nd opinion.
Her new regimen at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America is as follows.
Through IV - Zosran 5 days ever 28 days for 4 hrs., Leucovorin 5 days every 28 for 4 hrs., FUDR 1 hr 5 days every 28 and she drinks Allopurinol so chemo doesn't absorb into mouth causing sores.
Interarterial directly to liver - Cisplatin and Mitomycin-C 1 day for 5 hrs every 28 days.
Naturopathy - Milk thisle, sensitizes cisplatin and supports liver. Melatonin, reduces with loss and stimulates white cells. B6, helps nerves and prevents peeling of hand and feet. EPA max, Omega 3 and helps cell signaling. Green Tea Extract, tumor death associated with blood vessel formation. Ginger Max, anti-nausea and anti-inflamitory.
Anyone else have similar treatment going on?
