Just wondered if any of you ladies are convinced you have the secret of holding off this disease for a while or for good. Absolute long shot I know but probably like most of us, I'm desperate to do my bit alongside conventional treatment.
I had over three years from diagnosis at stage 3b to recurrence. I ate a very healthy general diet and included ginger and broccoli regularly. I walk my dog but did no formal exercise. We bought a caravan and took regular breaks but I had fallen back into working too hard and feeling stressed about volume of work and waiting lists (my fault, no pressure from those around me).
I want to try even harder to do what I can to keep the disease under control and am having regular reflexology sessions, taking ginger, turmeric and bromelain supplements and taking things easier (don't have much option there anyway due to poor energy levels) but exercising when I can.
My mum had stage 1c OC 17 years ago with no recurrence. She had sugery and carboplatin. She has a healthy diet but virtually no exercise due to disability. She has been taking metformin for diabetes for many years now, which has recently been in the general press as being beneficial to cancer survival but not yet trialled.
Am open to suggestions however daft they seem.
