My experience with cancer !
Hi all, this is a little about me, I live in north Queensland Townsville. Late last year around September I was diagnosed with aggressive bladder cancer. Before this all started I worked for 40 years nearly 7 days a week and never really had A holiday, the amount of drugs I have used in the last 40 years would have been around two packets of Panadol, I have never really been sick. I have had some issues with kidney stones before and a few broken bones.It started with kidney stones, I went to the hospital with bad pains in the side and had a scan and they told me that I had four stones wedged in between my bladder and kidney. I went home and passed the stones around four days later it was a big relief, but as the days went on I was bleeding excessively. I went back to hospital and had another scan, they told me I had a 2 inch Growth in my bladder. I waited for a letter from the hospital to come in. This took around a week and I was bleeding heavier. I finally got the letter to go in and have a check up to see if I was healthy enough to have the growth removed. I passed the test and then went in and saw A doctor, she examined me and said I was fit for my age, I asked how long it would take before I come in and have it removed as I didn’t have healthcare. She told me could be a couple months before I get seen, I told her that I was bleeding very heavily and I don’t think that I would last that long. She went over my records and asked me to have a blood test today, she said after the blood test go home and we will ring you if there is a problem. I went and had a blood test and within three hours of leaving the hospital the doctor rang me to tell me surgery was the following Wednesday. I went in on the Wednesday morning, I went into surgery and had the growth removed. Thursday morning they told me the bad news that the growth had gone through the bladder wall and I will have to have a bone scan. Another doctor came around and said if I could pee more than 50% of my bladder they would take the catheter out and I could go home. Well I did just that and I was let out at 10 o’clock in the morning 11 o’clock I was back at work everybody that came to the shop said I was crazy that I should be home. A week went by and I had the bone scan which came up fairly good, another week went by and I had to have another two scans abdomen and chest that was on Thursday. On the Tuesday I went to see the oncologists, it wasn’t good news they tell me I have a very aggressive bladder cancer and if I didn’t have the operation next week I wouldn’t be here the following week. I was speechless, sign the papers and was booked in for surgery the following Monday. I was admitted Sunday and was prepared for surgery Monday morning. The Sunday I went in and was admitted, I had to drink around 6 Litres of some sort of solution that would make me empty my bowels, I think I got through around Five litres. Monday morning I was sent down to the theatre and prepared for surgery. I had an epidural in my back cannulas in both arms and I don’t know what else, And gave me A needle to make me drowsy so I couldn’t remember the rest. After surgery I woke up in ICU in a big armchair. When I came to the nurses made me stand up, and it felt like my guts was going to fall out. They return me back into the chair I must’ve dozed off a bit and coming back around I sung out to one of the nurses that I couldn’t breathe properly, two nurses rushed over and one grabbed some ice. She put the ice on my forehead and asked if I could feel it I said cold went down to my chin and did the same thing, I said warm went to my chest and I said I could not feel it. Next thing I heard one nurse saying change protocol change protocol, next thing I realise there was a few nurses standing over me and changing a few things. I think I was lucky I woke up at that time as the epidural was set too high and it was stopping my heart lung from operating, if I didn’t wake up at that time I don’t think I would’ve woke up at all. I can’t remember if I spent two days in ICU and then transferred to a ward. I try not to use the pain relief, all I had to do was press a button and it would administer A pain killer. I had tubes coming out of everywhere, in both arms, In the neck, from my nose and down in my groin. On the second day they took the tube from my nose, and I was glad it was gone. Over the next few days more tubes were taken off of me, I don’t know how many needles and blood tests I had while i was in there. Every morning my doctors coming in and talk to me, they could not believe the progress I was making compared to others that didn’t have this much surgery as I did. They told me I would be in for three weeks plus, but I proved them wrong I was out in two weeks. It was slow going for the first couple of weeks and I was at home doing nothing which is not me. I told the wife I had to go back to work as staying home was killing me. I was told not to lift anything for three months and be at home. I didn’t do much work as it was hard going and very tiring, mainly half days and I was totally exhausted. I did Lift something in the first week and I thought I had ripped something in my stomach, it took a few days for the pain to go. On the third week my temperature went up to 41 Celsius this went on for three days and it was getting unbearable, when we got home on that third day I told my daughter to ring the ambulance. They were here about 10 minutes later, I was that weak I didn’t even know they had turned up until I heard somebody talking. One of them asked me how I was feeling, I told him I feel like I’ve been run over by truck, he then said we’re going to take your temperature, I told him I was already starting to cool down. He took my temp and it was 39.8, mate you’re going to have to go to hospital i heard one say. In hospital they took my temp again and told me A doctor would come and see me. When the doctor came to see me he had told me I have contracted A bug that is why my temp was so high. During that night I was pumped full of medication and many blood tests so they could culture the blood to see what medication would get rid of the bug. They administered some powerful drugs making me feel like shit. After three days they found a drug that would get rid of the bugs that I had. I was on medication for another seven days. Because of the bug I could not get set up for chemo. Two weeks went by and I was called in to see the chemo doctor, he told me that he would start the chemo in the couple of days time. In for chemo I went, when they called me in they sat me down in a nice armchair, hooked me all up and said it would take around 3 1/2 hours. It was 5 1/2 hours later I was finished. The next chemo was a weeks time. I didn’t really have a reaction with the first lot, two days after the second lot my temperature rose to 41° again, so another trip to the hospital and they had told me I had another bug, so another dose of drugs for another 10 days. When the third dose of chemo came about, the same thing happened two days later temperature rose to 41 again so another 10 days of high dosage drugs. The chemo doctor said he would reduce the rate. So the next bout of chemo did the same thing. I was sick of all these tests and then telling me that I had a bug which they could not find in the urine in my blood and even A swab of my nose revealed no bugs, I asked the doctor if you cannot find a bug in my system why are you giving me all these bad drugs. His answer was I did have a bug somewhere, my answer to him was if you cannot find a bug I do not Want to take any more drugs. I told him it was the chemo that was putting my temperature that high. Anyway after all that was over I had to go back and see the chemo bloke as they wanted me to have more chemo. In all I was supposed to have six months of chemo,i think if i went through the 6 months of chemo i don’t think i would still be here, after that first month I told them no more chemo for me. I would do it all natural, first I was taking soursop leaves (100 leaves to 11 glasses of water boil for 15 minutes) then drink one glass a day. I did this for around a month or so and then changed to neem leaves. One branch has around 10 to 12 leaves on it, so i took six of these branches and placed 2 L of water to boil. boil until the water is reduced to one litre, cool and bottle then put in fridge and have half a glass a day I do this in the morning on an empty stomach. I did this for over four months, plus some veggie juices in the morning and a few tins of asparagus. Six months have gone by with no dramas, however still took a long time for the chemo to disappear out of my body I had another appointment to see the doctor, my oncologist, the one that did the surgery. After the meeting with him, He had told me that I was looking very good compared to the last Time he saw me, he had booked me in A months Time so they could put a camera in and have a look if there was anything new growing. That time came round and saw me back in hospital, they put camera in to have a look, they were very impressed that everything looked very good and said they would not have to see me for another 12 months. He told me that the nodes in my left lower lung haven’t grown but would still like me to go for another month of chemo. I told him straight away that I didn’t want any more chemo. however he would Book me a time to see the chemo doc again. This was about a week later I went and saw the chemo bloke and he told me that he would reduce the rate again and I told him no I was not going to have chemo at this point in time. So they had cleared me off the list and if I wanted to come back and have chemo I’ll have to get a referral from my doctor first. He also told me that he would make an appointment for another Scan to see how things are going. I was still taking all the natural things before going to the scan. I have another appointment to see the chemo bloke and on the day of seeing him he was smiling shook my hand and said he was very pleased with my results, nothing has grown, kidney back to original size, on the same breath he told me I didn’t have two have another scan for six months. While this was going on I did see the physiotherapist on a few occasions who told me what I was supposed to be doing and what could happen if I didn’t do them. I have been told all these things before I left the hospital. She was very pleased with all the results and what I was saying, she said I would not have to see her again. I have stopped taking the neem leaves and have found another natural substance that I am taking for the next two months. One thing that I have done is to make sure I drink high alkaline water, which I get from magnesium beads that are placed in my water pot at work which holds 8 L and at home I have one that holds 15 L with two sachets in each. these magnesium beads never has to be replaced and last a lifetime and keep a pH in the water around nine which is very alkaline. Another substance I am using is A tonic which helps my immune system, it is made of a few barks of trees,kelp and many other substances that are natural. And the last thing is an extract of a Japanese mushroom. I’m taking these for two months and the next time I had a scan hopefully my cell count Will be zero cross my fingers. At the moment I am back to about 100% compared to four months ago at around 20%. People that see me and know me say that I look very good have good colour in my skin. Don’t get me wrong it was a hard battle, I did suffer a few times and had my ups and downs, however I still kept a positive attitude and said I was gonna beat this. I am now taking a tonic and taiga extract which is A Japanese mushroom. when they examined the iceman found this fungi in a satchel.The man they found buried in the ice, Which they called the Iceman. They grew this
fungi and found out the name of it, it is called fometopsis pinicola. The bottle comes with an eyedropper and you take three eyedroppers first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, you do this for four days and then have three days off. At the same time I am taking a tonic which is made out of Bark from certain trees, and a few other ingredients, this is supposed to boost my a immune system, I take this everyday for two months as with the Japanese mushroom extract. this is it until i find out more.
