Good evening lovely ladies,
Its been a while since i last posed on here, i thought i would come on a share what i have been up to.
In November I started to have a buildup of acites again, 3rd re-occurrence. my oncologist offered me weekly taxol as i was now considered platinum resistant, I asked what would happen next and she told me that as long as she keeps me alive 5 years after diagnosis she has given me gold standard treatment! That was not good enough for me.
I came across a clinic in Turkey with was having amazing results so after talking to the doc there I went off to turkey at the end of November to start my treatment. They give low dose chemo and enhance the effectiveness of it with heat therapy and oxygen therapy along with vitamin infusions.
When I arrived in Turkey I had 10 active tumors on in between my lungs which my oncologist in the UK said had nothing to do with the cancer!
I had my scan last week after 5 treatments and I'm over the moon to say that it was all clear!
The Dr did say that the CT PET scan doesn't pick up tumors smaller then 3.8mm so I will be going back to Turkey for another 5 treatments!
I hope this gives you ladies hope as the treatment in the UK is not the be all and end all... there is a whole world out there that is not restricted by what they can give you to help cure you
Much love and best wishes
