Thyroid Cancer from Singapore
Hi Prof Teo,
I have recently came to know about u through forwarded email. I have been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer of stage three by Singapore General Hospital in July 2011. I was asked to go for an immediate surgery for the removal of my thyroid as the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes. I have many tumor around my neck area some as the size of chick pea. My thyroid is very enlarged then. I was told that after the surgery they will send me for radiation so as to kill the cancer cell. I refused to heed the advice of the doctors as I have heard a lot of story of how chemo and radiation do harm than good.
I seek alternative by taking herbal supplement such as swallowing gingko biloba, spirullina, ginseng, sea kelp, vitamin c, chlorophyll and not forgetting keladi tikus which I ordered from Malaysia. I changed my diet and I am on fruits and vegetables with no rice and bread or any carbohydrates since September 2011.
In January 2012, I have been consulting an alternative therapy in Johor with treatment using ozone and IV of 12000mg of Vitamin C and the whole range of Vitamin B.
After reading the testimonies of your cancer patients, I wonder if the treatment I am going through is enough for my survival from this cancer thus I seek you honest opinion. I am currently having pain in my left arm, neck the left side of my brain. A doctor suspected that the cancer is spreading towards my brain region. I have not done any recent CT scan thus I am just keeping my finger cross.
By the way, I have a friend with stage 4 ovarian cancer who had done surgery and a few chemo therapy in SGH and she is currently going through the same treatment as me.
I seek your help to suggest what is good for my recovery as well as advice for my 55 years old friend.
Thank You, H (41 years old)
