She died after Caelyx, Carboplatin and Avastin

Dear Dr Chris
Very sorry to inform you Mrs V passed away on Monday 22nd February. She was a spiritual person so when her calling came it was peaceful. Thank you for the help  and support . Regards.

Reply: Thank you for your information. I am sad to hear that. I remember you told me she went for chemo — did she die after taking the chemo? Thanks.

Dr Chris

The complications started after she started chemo and she passed away within 2 weeks after chemo.

I m disappointed Mrs V choose to do chemo for the 5th time but she was in a lot of pain, ascites was a lot (they removed 4 litres).

I don’t know what to think about the mainstream medication . Regards.

Hello Dr Chris
I am very sad as I think it was a premature death. I warmly thank you for your help.
I very much regret that I could not locate you earlier than I did. Anyway I think that was meant to be .Her calling had come and she was a brave woman who fought hard. Regards

Reply: Thank you very much for this clarification — but that is the way it is all the time. Thanks again for sharing!

Hello Dr Chris

Mrs V has been recommended to start chemo immediately. She has been uncomfortable for several days and the oncologist team thought that by waiting too long she may lose the window of opportunity for treatment .

They recommended this time to use caelyx and carboplatin which was used in 2008 but added Avastin also.

They told us they that want to do 3 cycles of 2 sittings each ,15 days apart of so 6 sittings. This will go on for 3 months.

We are of course very concerned about the effectiveness of the chemo though as we know it is a short gap arrangement; but we have to give it a try to see if some interim relief is archived.

Mrs V will therefore start tomorrow. It was a very difficult decision for us to accept as we do not know what lies ahead.

I will come back to you after 1 month, after 2 cycles are over by which time we should be able to assess.

Please spare a thought for V in these difficult days. Warm regards.

 

 

Two Chemos and He Died

Let me share with you these e-mails. And I get to receive such e-mails or hear such horror stories all too often.

30 January 2013

Dear Chris,

My husband had passed away last November 2012.  After two cycles of chemo, he experienced leg weakness. He stopped chemo after that. Then he was paralysed starting from the legs, and moving upwards to both hands, and finally his breathing muscle was affected. He died due to breathing difficulties.

In any case, I would like to thank you for the help rendered. Thanks and regards,

Comment: Two shots of chemo and he was dead?

This was what his wife wrote on 14 June 2012.

Dear Chris, The doctor (looked experienced and kind) suggested Gemzar and Cisplatin for six cycles. He did not recommend radio because it is not solving the root cause of the growth (previous radio sites also growing). Honestly, I’m at loss because I also frightened of chemo after so many awful stories. Finally, we decided to try out 1 or 2 cycles and monitor my husband’s condition, scheduled to start next week. I know this sounds stupid. However, there does not seem to be other avenue to slow down this growth. We still plan to continue with herbs long term- but can we have herbs during chemo? Thanks and regards.

Lung Cancer: Father Died

29 Febraury 2012, 9.22 pm  

Dear Dr. Chris and Aunty Beng Im,

I want to inform you that my father, Mr. Lias Sentosa from Indonesia, had died on Thursday, 16 February 2012. I want to thank you for all your treatment to my father during his sickness. Until his last days, he still take your herbs and do the e-therapy. I believe that your herbs and the therapy do bring goodness to him. He died without suffering (no pain and no difficulty in breathing, he died in his sleep). I believe that he already happier right now, free from his sickness and rest in a peaceful place.

Thank you for remembering my father among your patients. We, family, are happy to know you also. You gave a medication, with a personal touch, that we hardly find anywhere else. We learn a lot from you about healthy life style.
