Hi! Nice to hear from you. I took prochlorperazine, ( a little pill that is for nausea), a half hour before each meal for the first week after chemo. Not only did I have no nausea, but I didn't have any wierd things with food bothering me. I had a good apetite as long as I expended energy. Watch it with sugar! Tumor cells feed on them. I suddenly had sugar cravings as soon as I started the chemo. (I am normally a savory type.) I did/ do lots of fruit to help. FYI; Papaya is highly recommended in South America during cancer treatment. Avastin treating you o.k? Or, can you tell?

    Did you experience any bone/ muscle pain, or problems with eyesight your first go-round? I have all of the above. Just curious. Wherever you are, enjoy the weather this week. I'm in Oregon sloshing through rain!

Avastin is treating me ok. So bleeding so far (Cross fingers).

 

And yes i did have some bone/muscle pain and some problems with eyesight during the first week after chemo.

 

Glad to know about papaya, at least it's one common fruit here and it's not a costly one too.

So did your pain , and eyesight problem go away? My bleeding from Avastin took four months to heal from. It wasn't that bad though. Are you in Hawaii? I lived there when I was young, and my mother was raised there. Papaya is good for many things! How's your lung?

Hi Shemay, thanks to you I am doing the C therapy. Do you perhaps know where I find the protocol for it? I'm wanting to know how high a dose, how often, and for how long is agressive at killing my cancer cells. I am doing 2x a week at 70grams at this point, via a picc line. I am in Portland Oregon and have only found the Northwest College Of Natural Medicine that does it. They start at 15 grams. Which was pretty disappointing since at stage IV OVCA I thought I should start much higher ( like 50 grams). This seems to be my only hope left for treatment. I'm terribly worried that the dose won't be high enough to do any good, fast enough to beat the cancer. Any thoughts, or steering me in the right direction ( again!) is appreciated!  Wydra

Yes the pain and eyesight problem went away after the first week.  Not sure about my lungs yet hehe.. no problem breathing or whatsoever, but i have not had any scan yet to see if the masses there shrunk and went away already or not.

Hmmm. It's been two months since my sixth chemo, and no change in the eyesight or pain problems. My lungs have been pretty good since having the last thorescentesis. I still have cancer in the lung and abdomen. I wonder if my problems will improve?  I used to live in Hawaii. It must be lovely where you are. I get to go back in September. I cannot wait!( I hope your growths have gone away.)

I took coriolus mushroom as well after chemo for stage IV Ovarian Cancer.  I'm still cancerfree 5 yrs after!

I'm in Hawaii (Big Island).  Where are you?

Five years! That's so cool. I hope I am like you. I will check into coriolus mushroom. I see a new Naturopath soon. I hope he can tell me more. I still have the bad eyes and bones hurt. I am in Oregon. Used to live in Oahu. I have never been to the Big Island, but read about Volcano (the town). It sounds beautiful. I'm going to Kauai in September. Aloha!

Hi Wydra

15 grams is standard when one begins intravenous vitamin c treatments. Individual tolerance is closely observed and the dosage is then increased gradually to the therapeutic level.  70 grams seems appropriate for your stage of cancer but if you are concerned then I suggest you ask your doctor about taking lypo-spheric vitamin c as well. Five packets spread out over the day are said to be equivalent to a 50 gram infusion.  Since this form bypasses the digestive system there are no bowel issues to worry about.

Here is a link which I hope will answer any questions you may have and give you an even better understanding of how and why this treatment has been proven so effective even when dealing with cancer patients who were deemed terminal by their standard of care doctors.

Knowledge brings understanding and understanding brings confidence and confidence brings healing.  I know from experience that cancer can be defeated using this as part of an alternative protocol. Diet and supplementation are important as well. Your Naturopath will guide you in those areas. 

Wishing you much success. Please keep us posted as to your progress.

Sheila
