I expect you’ve been wondering how I have been doing since being in England from the middle of July onwards. Well, other than learning how to deal with a stoma, I have been feeling very well, enjoying a good appetite and maintaining my weight at 159 pounds. That is 30 pounds lighter than when I first started this cancer journey, but it is stable now and has been for some while now. We’re enjoying great weather here, but it has turned a bit colder in the last few days. The countryside still is delightful, and we get out and around to enjoy it as much as we can while we can.
It took a while to get the tests done to see if the Cellsonic treatment had worked, but after having a PET Scan and MRI done within the last two weeks, I had the results Friday from the surgeon. There was some good news in that the lesion in the lung has gone and, even though the one in the rectum is still there, it has not progressed very much. I’m taking both of those as a qualified success for the Cellsonic treatment.
However, the bad news is that it has metastasized to the liver. There are now 3 new lesions on the liver; possibly four. There is no surgical solution, so the only thing they can offer is chemo. But given their dire prognosis (not mine – I don’t buy it) it wouldn’t make that much of a difference in months gained and might even speed my demise, so I won’t be doing it. I’m at the end of the road now as far as what regular medicine has to offer. But there’s plenty more I will be doing of an alternative nature, of course.
Since the Cellsonic worked on the lung, it does at least show that it works – albeit not to the degree I was hoping it would on the other one, I will continue to use it on the liver and rectal tumors for another month or so before shipping the machine over to Atlanta. Since the spot on the liver on the previous scan was so small and only suspected to be a possible lesion, we tended not to use the Cellsonic on it to the same extent we did as the lung and rectal ones. So, I will be more aggressive in my use of the Cellsonic going forward. I will also pick up again on all the other things I was doing before starting the Cellsonic. (I wanted to test that out without other things going on at the same time.) So, I am pretty confident that we can buy a lot more time than the medical folks have predicted I might have. We shall see. My 77th birthday is coming up on the 30th of September and as I said to JoAnn, “I’ll make it to 80 even if it kills me!”
As yet we have no buyers showing up wanting to buy our flat, so we may have to rent it. Either way is fine. We have lowered the price by 10K, so hopefully, that will bring the buyers. Time to do another Radical Manifestation Worksheet now that we have changed the price.
Love and blessings to you,
