Liver Cancer from the Philippines

Hello Dr. Teo,

I am L from the Philippines . My mother was diagnosed by her attending physician of having a Liver CA.

We are very thankful to find your website while browsing my laptop with teary eyes hoping to find hopes for my mother. You really give us an inspiration and hope to continue fighting this horrible war that we are facing right now after my mother’s diagnosis of having SUSPICIOUS FOR PRIMARY HEPATOCELLULAR CARCINOMA after her scan.

Her ultrasound shows Heterogenously enhancing mixed density non-calcified mass Right lobe liver measuring 12.7 x 9.3 x 15.3 cm.

Her attending physician prescribed a chemo drugs named, SORAFENIB ( NEXAVAR ). We are still in doubt to start this chemo drugs because of the side effects which is very possible for my mother to suffer if we decide to start the medication.

My mother is 70 years old, Diabetic taking Metformin for 4 years but then her Creatinine is a bit high so her doctor shift to Tragenta . She is also taking Plavix and Imdur for her heart condition.

Doctor Teo, I am very willing to fly there in Penang but most probably without my mother because she is living in Philippines  but I will bring all her laboratory and scan results.

Yes I understand that its very difficult to treat patient without seeing her personally. To be honest Dr. Teo , my mother did not know her diagnosis because we ask her doctor to hide the reality because we are very sure that if we let her know, it will only give her a very depressing situation knowing my mother’s character very well.

Is going there in Penang very safe ? People there can speak English? This is my worries, because i will be travelling alone. Are you open on Saturday and Sunday Doctor Teo and from what time?

Doctor Teo, I am looking forward to your reply. Please help us to face and fight this battle of my mother. We believe that God uses you and the rest of the doctors as an instrument to help, heal, inspire, gives hope to the hopeless situation.

Thank you so much in advance for your reply. God bless.

Reply:  There is NO cure for primary liver cancer but I know that my herbs are good for the problem…cannot cure but good. You can come will all medical reports and scan … we teach you how to take care of your mom …and you go home and try.  

No problem. Penang is okay. Almost everybody speaks or understand English. 

We are open Monday to Friday at 11 am only.

Hello Dr.Teo,

Thank you so much for your reply. It really gives us hope and inspiration with earnest prayers to fight this battle of my Mom. For now, we have a strong decision not to start  Nexavar at all.

Doctor, can you please give me the easiest direction to locate your clinic?  Is there any possibility for me to have an appointment with you during Saturday or Sunday? These are the possible days that I can escape from my work. I am very sorry to ask this kind of question Doctor. I am trying to squeeze my time hoping to avoid any absents to maximize my earnings to support my Mom’s treatment.

I will be flying there as soon as possible Doctor for us to start your herbs. Please Doctor, we need your help badly for my mother’s health condition. I can’t concentrate most of the time doing my work.

…… Hoping to hear from your reply again Doctor Teo. Thank you so much once again for your precious time in reading and replying my message. God bless !!! 

Reply: Can you please read this http://www.cacare.com/contact  

You have all the info you need to come to our centre. It is just about 20 minutes away from the airport. You can also find cheap room rental in there too. Coming to Penang is not a big deal — far, far, safer and easier than Manila. 

Let me be very frank with you –there is NO cure for cancer. Even if you come and see me, don’t expect a cure. My main concern is how do you get more herbs after your visit to us? Sending by post? Please consider all these first even before you want to come. 

In fact, my frank advice is, Don’t come, I cannot cure your mom. 

I am sorry, we are only open from Monday to Friday at 11 am only …. other days, I may be away and not in Penang. And also our workers don’t work on weekends. 

As much as I feel sorry for those with cancer —  I want to be very frank and truthful. It is better that you find someone else in your country who can help you.

Stomach problem from Singapore — less than 3 months to live

Dear Dr Teo,

My mother, aged 68, has been diagnosed with linitus plastica. It is concentrated on her stomach and has spread to the surrounding areas but has not infected the other organs.  She was supposed to undergo surgery to remove the stomach but once the doctor found that it had spread, he couldn’t operate.  The prognosis given I that she has less than 3 months to live. She is also unable to eat, and can only take in nourishment intravenously.

Is there any way we can come down to for a consultation?  We are from Singapore.
Hope to hear from you soon.

Reply: Let the doctors do what they want to do first, after that come and see me with all the reports.

Bile Duct Cancer from India

Dear Mr. Chris K. H. Teo,

Ab this side from India. First of all I understand that you and your team are very reluctant to advise patients via e-mail as this has not been a good experience. But, my concern is that neither the patient is capable enough to visit you in Malaysia and nor it is financially viable for my family to visit you there.

I also believe that you people are doing this great job to help those people who has no hope left with them. We have tried the bestest doctor available and already spent the money available with us. If you are still willing to advise me I have mentioned below my case. Request you to revert with a positive response.

This is regarding my grand mother (age 72), she is suffering from mid bile duct cancer (an advanced stage case). It all started when she started having pain in her abdominal 2 weeks back (just to inform you that no sign of pain or anything before that). We had her treated and doctor suggested an ultrasound and MRI. In the MRI it says “mid-CBD cholangiocarcinoma.

Focal lesion in segment 4b of liver at gall blader fosssa region. Possibility of Metastasis/synchronous cholangiocarcinoma can not be ruled out”.

We went to see a bigger doctor and facility (Fortis Escorts – Delhi). Considering the MRI report this doctor also said that she is suffering from cholangiocarcinoma and it is a serious one. They did an ERCP and said it is a confirmed case of cholangiocarcinoma. As per the doctor my grandmother is not a good candidate for operation as she is not physically fit and age factor also. Further, the operation is very critical and they can not guarantee a full removal of cancer after the operation and it is also very expensive.

Further, Chemotherapy cannot be done as it has his own side effects. However, a metal stunt can be place to remove that blockage in the bile duct.

They did endoscopy ultrasound, ERCP and placed that stunt. Placing stunt was successful (as per the doctors). Although, I have reports and images of the ERCP.

After the above procedure she continuously have high blood pressure. Doctor discharged my grandmother 2 days after the procedure. We took her back home with us and now the situation is she is continuously having pain in her stomach and that too very strong. Doctor has not provided any medicine for the cancer as they say it is not curable through medicine (and operation/chemo are also not an option as per the doctors).

They have given pain killers for the pain and medicine for blood pressure. If you require I can send you any other information you need regarding her situation and the reports of procedure.  I urge you advise me any solution if possible, at the earliest.Just to inform you we started giving her Tea made from Graviola leaves from today itself.

Thanks and regards, Ab (her grandson). 

Reply:  I am sorry, I cannot help or advise. What can I do by sitting down in front of the computer? No use. I am sorry — can you go and find someone else in your country to help.

Thanks Chris for your immediate response. I understand that you do not had good experience in advising online. But if possible, at least suggest some medication or please guide whether giving Graviola will do any improvement or not. I have met various doctors but they all have similar views.I can send her reports to you on e-mail if you want.

 

 

Failed Medical Treatment for Leukemia

Dear Dr Chris,

Good day.

I called your centre this morning, Mr K advised me to write an email to you.

I am writing this email to seek for an appointment with you on behalf of my nephew.

We are based in KL. Currently he is admitted to A Hospital for treatment.

My nephew – is 27 years old. Diagnosed with Leukemia around end 2014. He has gone through cycles of chemotherapy. He was responding ok to the chemotherapies. We found a matching bone marrow donor and he did his stem cell transplant August 2015. He was recovering and showing positive signs for 5 months.

Then the leukaemia cells was discovered again in end January 2016.

Subsequently, he was administered with 3 cycle of chemotherapy with the new drug – Vidaza. His condition deteriorated. And his liver and lungs were affected quite badly. He is having jaundice since end May. The alanine aminotransferase (ALT) test showed very high scoring at 500+ point at a time. It was up and down. Today’s reading is about 129.

I have attached the latest reading for your reference.

We have decided to stop chemotherapy. But 2 weeks back his white blood cell shot up to 68, hospital have to use mild chemo to bring it down again. The hospital says that he is unable to produce any healthy blood cells at the moment. Platelet and haemoglobin are always low. And his white blood keeps increasing.

The past 3 days, he was in a state of incoherence. He refused to sleep for 3 days. He was non communicative and non responsive. Acting like a child. He was drifted in and out. Finally after a night sleep, he appeared to be emotionally more stable. Hospital did a CT Scan for him and mentioned that there were tiny blood clots in his brain that gave tiny seizure that resulting him zoning in out.

I understand that you don’t do email consultation. Now he needs to have blood transfusion almost every 2 days and still quite weak, so we can’t bring him to see you.

Will it be possible for me to bring his report to see you? Hospital doesn’t release all the reports to us. Could you let me know what are the reports you require? Kindly let me know when it will be convenient to make an appointment with you. Thank you in advance. Have a magnificent day.  

Reply: I really don’t know what I can do — after all, the doctors have done everything and failed. I cannot cure any cancer. If someone takes my herbs at this point and dies — they will blame the herbs. I am sorry, I cannot help.

Dear Dr Chris,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

You mentioned in your website that most of the patients who look for you are usually quite severe.

I wish I would have known about you earlier.  We totally understand and take responsible for all the decision we made in his healing process.

We are hoping that with your holistic approach, we will have proper guidance in taking herbs and diet.

Our family believes in herbs, the problem is like many of the Chinese family we do not know what’s the right prescription and combination which is detrimental in any kind of medication.

I really like your scientific and systematic way of approaches to help people heal through herbs.

My nephew is a very positive and live quite healthily even prior to this.

Could you reconsider?

Reply: Yes, I understand. You can come and see me with all the medical reports / scans — Monday to Friday at 11 a.m.
