Cancer from India: Chemo failed
Dear Dr. Chris Teo,
I am from Mumbai, India and I am writing to you in relation to the health condition of my Father. I got your reference from the internet and have gone through your website.
My father is 66 years old. In September, 2013 he was diagnosed with cancer. The Biopsy report reflected ‘Metastatic poorly differentiated basaloid squamous carcinoma. The Tumour cells express CK & p63. The PET- Scan reflected that the cancer was spread in various parts of his body.
His chemotherapy started on September 12, 2013. After three cycles of chemotherapy the PET- Scan revealed that the cancer has reduced substantially. We continued with three more cycles of chemotherapy and did a PET- Scan after 2 months from the end of the sixth cycle. The PET- Scan reflected further growth of cancer in various parts of his body. We were advised for another round of chemotherapy (the Seventh Cycle).
After the Seventh Cycle of chemotherapy my father became extremely weak and the doctor advised to suspend chemotherapy for about three months.
The current state of medication and my father is as follows:
- He has developed severe pain in his back and shoulder. We have been advised that this is due to the tumour in his vertebra and he is undergoing radiotherapy for that.
- His general health condition has gone down and he does not eat properly.
- He has become very weak.
- Chemotherapy and other medication has stopped and he is on a oral medicine called Gefifact.
- We are also consulting and Ayurvedic doctor and he is under his medication for about 2 weeks now.
We are looking at delaying the growth of cancer cells and prolonging lifespan and maintain better the quality of life.
We were wondering if you will be able to help us. If so, we would like to visit you with the medical reports of my father (and avoid any travel of my father as he is weak).
I am attaching the following documents for your preliminary review:
- Biopsy report
- Most recent PET- Scan Report
- Details of chemotherapy administered
- Latest blood test reports
If you wish we can send his entire medical records for your review.
We hope that this information is helpful. We really appreciate your time and look forward to hear from you.
Thanks and kind regards,
Reply: Thanks for your email. I am afraid it is very, very difficult for me to help people from far away country like India. I do send herbs to New Dehli but so far sending herbs to Mumbai is very difficult. Customs will stop it. The cancer is rather rare ..chemo is of no use … but what to do? If you live in Malaysia I ask you to come and see me, but it is extremely difficult for me to help patients from India.
Dear Dr. Chris Teo,
Thank you for you email. Do you think it is possible that we visit you and carry the medicines with us. Thanks and regards,
Reply: You can come and take the medicine home …for one time but next month when the medicine is finished … what happen? It takes about 2 weeks to send by air mail post BUT I am not sure if your customs will allow you in or not ….the last time I sent, it got stuck with the customs …..so, I am disappointed.
