Grandma has ovarian cancer
Dear Dr Teo,
I’m J working as a pharmacist in MOH. I came across your article cacre.org which has given my family much hope in the road of finding an alternative to conventional therapy. My grandma is 83 years old with history of hypertension, high cholesterol and osteoporosis. Yesterday she was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer and have spread to lungs. Her only symptoms were lower abdominal pain and post menopausal bleed. We thought that chemo and radio would be too burdensome for her. My family has medical doctors thus making alternative therapy seem tough. How should I go about it to convince them?
Thanks for your time. Really appreciate if you could reply . God Bless U
Reply: Thanks for your email. Where are you from? Reading your problem, I am afraid I am going to the thrown to the lions! My experience helping members of medical family is just next to impossible although I do have doctors who are my patients .. but this is rare. It is better that you let the medical doctors children do all the necessary. If her children — your uncle and untie who are medical doctors — need my help let them come and talk to me personally.
What are the risk if she were to go through your therapy? What is your experience with ovarian cancer. Does the cancer go into remission ?
