My doctors in England said I should have a check-up around March, so I showed up at the office of the surgeon I had seen last year. You may recall this was the guy who had more or less insisted on the surgical route if I wanted my rectal cancer cured.
He asked me when I had completed the radiation and chemo. I told him August 1st, 2015. He became very confused. “You’ve left it this long to come back for the surgery?”
I told him I had decided against surgery in favor of Brachytherapy in England and some alternative treatments like acupuncture, diet and hyperthermia.
He scoffed and rolled his eyes about the hyperthermia, so I decided not to tell him about the amazing amount of healing energy sent to me over several weeks that made such difference. I didn’t think he would buy that either.
So, I said, “You laugh, but the fact is I no longer have cancer. Gone in the space of 4 months and without submitting to a knife.”
(Actually, it turned out I didn’t even need Brachytherapy because the cancer had gone by the time I got to England in August. I did it anyway just to reduce the chances of it coming back.)
He clearly did not believe me.
“What about that big polyp we needed to go and get?” “Gone,” I said. “It was taken care of by a colonoscopy in England.”
He asked if he could take a look just to check. I agreed, of course. So he did his thing and agreed that the tumor was gone. “Even though I had not followed standard medical procedure,” he demurred, “what you did was obviously sufficient.”
He said to keep checking every 3 to 4 months to make sure it doesn’t re-occur. I told him I already have an appointment set up in June in England to do that.
So, that’s my report to all of you who took the time to send me healing energy. Thanks again. It was wonderful.
Tomorrow JoAnn and I are off to Anaheim, CA to do a Couples-in-Crisis workshop over the weekend. We still have a couple of spots open if you feel this might be a good opportunity to make a decision whether to stay in your relationship or move on. Click here for more information.
