I had a consultation today with Dr Mazibuko from the Care Oncology Clinic in London this afternoon. Some ladies on here wanted me to post my thoughts on how it all went, so here goes!
Dr Mazibuko went over the 4-drug COC protocol, which includes the following:
And possibly a fifth drug, Flavin.
For the doctors and nurses on here, you will see that these drugs are commonly used for the treatment of diabetes, high cholesterol, parasites and the fourth is an antibiotic (but not to be taken long term). The Care Oncology Clinic has repurposed these well known drugs for the treatment of cancer. They have been up and running for four and a half years. I don't know how long the American Care Oncology Clinic has been open.
Dr Mazibuko mentioned that he can write to my GP and oncologist to let them know about my plans to take these drugs. They are intended as adjunct treatment, not stand alone, so I shall be continuing with Letrozole, Zoladex, Zometa and the supplements I am taking. He said that these drug combinations are normally well tolerated, but some of the side effects are muscle aches from the statin and nausea from the metformin for the first few days.
Some of the patients who are on the COC protocol are GPs and oncologists, which doesn't surprise me, because I have come across some of them on the Facebook pages.
This post isn't intended to persuade anyone on here to use the COC protocol. I have done my research, and suggest others do the same if they are interested in starting anything new.
In addition to the COC protocol, I shall also be seeing Dr Callebout, an integrative doctor based in London, at the end of May to see what else I can do to improve the efficacy of my treatments. I intend to ask him about intravenous vitamin C infusions, amongst other things.
