CA Rectum to Liver from India

Dear Sir,

I have came across CA cancer care, Penang, Malaysia through net. I also read about the motivating story of an old lady at the age of 75, diagnosed with colo-rectal cancer and liver metastasis, who has lived up to the age of 90. It was really happy to see such a condition.

Now, I would like to mention that this mail, is to seek help and guidance for the management of such a condition.

It is my father Mr. K.P., diagnosed with CA rectum with liver metastasis. He is already a cardiac patient and diabetic. The heart pumping efficiency is between 20-30%. With this condition, and the stage of diagnosis, there was no chance for surgery, Circumferential wall thickening involving rectum for a length of approx 140 mm is observed. The metastasis in liver is up to 40 % involving segment 6 and 7. liver is enlarged by 174 mm. Now he had developed Jaundice because of this and eyes had become yellow.

Presently we are taking traditional medicines for bringing down bilirubin level and for the tumour.  Since he cannot undergo chemo, I would like to request you to guide me regarding the treatment at your centre. Though we may not be able to bring him in person, we can follow the regulations. Any one of us can do the follow up.

We wish he gains good health and be active and does the activities.

Please do help in this regard.

If there is course of treatment, I would like to know about the cost for the same.

 

Reply: There is nothing much I can do via the net — please go through my writings — 400+ of them in the website.

 

Sir,

One of our family friend will come and meet you in person and then can you extend your support. I would like to know, if the herbal teas can be taken with alternate medicine. I am reading the articles written by you.

Thank You. With regards, Dr. P.G.

 

Dear Dr. P.G.,
Let me be very honest and straight with you … it is no use trying to treat metastatic liver cancer. No cure and I am very, very reluctant to take on patients from far away countries. No use and no benefit … disappointed and wasted effort.
Below is my standard reply to those who wrote me …..

For those who ask for help online

Thank you very much for writing to us about your problem. We fully understand the need to find alternative methods when medical science has failed. CA Care exists because of this need. In the past we did try to help cancer patients via the net. But our experience showed that we failed miserably. It did not work out.

To be useful to cancer patients: 

I need to see patients personally or at least a family member who knows exactly the problem. I need to talk to them and assess their problems face to face. By seeing the patients, I might be able know what was wrong with them. Then I need to see all the medical reports and scans – blood test results, USG, MRI, CT or PET scan.  It is only after this study and dialogue that I know exactly what to do and prescribe the herbs. There are over 100 types of herbal teas that we specially formulated for cancer patients and they are specific for each problem. So to get the best from our experience means we just cannot do things on line.

After patient takes the herbs, I would need them to come back again after a week or two for me to assess the effectiveness of the herbs. If there is a need to I may have to add or subtract certain herbs.

By meeting and talking to patients and know what they eat, how they live, etc. I would be able to know what has gone wrong and suggest changes.

Cancer is a complex problem that involves both physical and mental aspects. Taking herbs alone is no magic. We have to do more than that – change of lifestyle, mental attitude, diet etc.

The above is nothing new. Patients need to be physically present to get help from their medical doctors. Every patient knows that. The same applies to CA Care. This is even more necessary knowing that almost all patients who come or write to us are medically failed cases – they are generally at the end stage where their doctors cannot meaningfully help them anymore. So at CA Care, I need to be more serious and more committed than just reading emails and trying to play god.

I hope you understand through this short explanation that it is extremely hard for me to help patients who live in foreign countries. I have tried this for some years and my experience showed me that at the end of it all, it is just a waste of effort and also a waste of money on your part. It is most frustrating indeed for me.

If you have read our articles in the websites: www.cacere.com or www.cacare.org or www.CancerCareMalaysia.com patients do experience miraculous healing. You will note that these patients (or a family member) come here and we do the therapy together. That is the reason why they succeed. I need to see patients every now and then to know what is going on.

I don’t want to be negative.  I understand that you need help but I must be sincere and honest to myself too. In my heart I know there are times and situations when I just cannot help. The problem is beyond me to solve. And I also know that I cannot solve everybody’s problem in this world. I have been working very hard every day to help cancer patients and I know in my heart that I can do that much and no more.

But please don’t give up. If you open up your heart and mind, you will know that there are also alternative healers in your own country. Why don’t you try them? Ask around and you may find one. I am sorry for being unable to help.

Bile Duct Cancer from India

Dear Dr Chris Teo,

Please be informed that, my father aged 65 years has been diagnosed with bile duct (cholangiocarcinoma) cancer which is in advanced stage. As per the different doctors advice we have started the chemo therapy 10 days back and based on the 6 weeks treatment, the results will be verified (another 2 treatments left) to see if there is any reduction in the tumor, but we would like to discontinue the chemo therapy as my father is losing the quality of life due to the side effects.

My father is suffering with lot of abdominal pain and we kindly need your advice to see if there is any therapy that will heal the pain. After searching so much in the web, I came across CA Care and have read many success stories on the same cancer from different patients and I would like to discuss with you and understand on the herbal medication.

We are from India, but we are very much ready to come over to Penang with all the reports to consult and discuss with you and understand the different herbs which will be useful in healing the body and also my father can visit subsequently (At present my father do not have the passport and we are in the process of obtaining the same) but I will definitely come to your place for the consultation with all the reports.

More about patient:

Age 65 years, Diabetes 2 with Hypertension and  Recently Diagnosed(September 16 2015) with Cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer and stomach related) with 4 stage.

We admitted patient in hospital with severe Abdominal pain, especially pain at tumour site. He has a tumour on 8th lobe of the Liver.

Doctors said he has only 6 months.

Current Symptoms he has severe abdominal Pain with restlessness. We depending now on opioid trans-dermal patches with tramadol paracetamol combination. He has only fluid intake like rice fluid and Milk and pomegranate and carrot juice and millets juice

Our intention of approach is to increase the quality of life by reducing symptoms with in small span of time

Chemotherapy 1st cycle completed with Gemcetabine and Oxaliplatin.

We can’t move the patient from Hyderabad.

Is there any drug interactions with your medicine. We need early results. We are unable to see his pain.

We may not able to come there and visit, but I have my best friend in Malaysia who can come and visit to explain the Case and handover report copies.

Reply: It is very very hard for me to take care of patients from far away places — many patients from India came to see me in person but only once …at the end of it all, it is just a wasted efforts. Coming to see me once is just meaningless without follow up visits.

But I cannot stop you from coming to see me — you don’t have to bring the patient. The travel is bad for him. But let me say out front, this it is going to be a useless effort and waste of money — unless of course, money is not a problem.  

I am real disappointed so far with patients who come from far away places. It is because of this that it would be better for you to find someone else in India who can help you. 

I am sorry for being so blunt but I just want to be honest with you.

Liver Cancer from Rajasthan, India

Sir,

My father is 80 years old and is suffering from HCC liver, metastatic and ascites. We had done C T scan on 30 July 2014 which showed 17*10 cm size tumour in the left lobe of liver .
We started homeopathic treatment and another C T Scan was done on 24 Jan 2015. The tumour size remained the same. Ascites developed, but other organs were functioning normally and presently he is unable to eat and walk or stand on his own.

I am from India and came to know about you through internet, Is there any medicine that can make his remaining life peaceful and healthy?. My father never used alcohol and tobacco in his life. The doctor had prescribed sorafenib medicine but we had not given it to him.

With regards.

Ovarian Cancer from India

Dear Dr Chris

Seek your urgent advise and help to heal my mom suffering from adenocarcinoma ovary.

She was diagonosed with CA ovary back in June 2010. Her first surgery was done in the same month followed by chemotherapy and then again a surgery in Nov 2010 followed by chemo treatments.

Her tumor marker came down by the end of 2011. She was fine for almost for the entire year of 2012.

2013, she was symtomatic in the sense that asitic in very very small amounts started forming which had to be tapped once in a while..

But recently around 3-4 months her tumor marker has shot up tremendously, heommorage (reddish)  ascitic needs to b tapped twice weekly. And there is a big mass which has developed in the right side in abdomen.

Her general condition is also below satisfactory. She is also vomiting almost around 10 times in a day , output being bile .( She is strictly on fluids as far as intake is considered)

Today , as a matter of shock there was blood in the  vomit .
She also gets breathless in a small activity like visiting the loo..

Request you to kindly take this as a top priority case and help us heal our mother very soon.
Pl advise where can we send u recent reports for ur perusal.

Awaiting ur response soonest.

Kind regards.

Dear Dr Chris,

We stay in India and hence can’t come immediately to seek your assistance. Moreover, my mother needs my personal attention and hence will not b able to make it to meet you up. Hence, request you to kindly go through the brief of her condition below and advise. Based on your advise i will manage to meet up with u personally or through a relative.

Rectal Cancer from India

 

Dear Doc,
As many other patients I write to u with great hope. My sister (Age 35) has been a patient of Ulcerative Colitis since 2001 but it was in remission since 2010. In December 2013 she was diagnosed with rectal cancer (tumour in the rectum and mets in the peritoneum and some effect on the ovary too. She is presently undergoing chemotherapy Folfox 6 and has completed 6 sessions n 6 more sessions remain. However she is in poor health n not able to tolerate chemotherapy and therefore the disagree is to be reduced from next time.

She has lost 12kg since treatment started and weighs only 44kg now. The doctors also say that curative surgery is not possible and give her only a few years even with chemotherapy.
I am attaching few important reports here. I can send you all the reports if you require. I understand you need either the patient or a person to visit who knows the details. Presently my sister is repeatedly getting hospitalised due to weakness n not able to travel. I myself can come but that too only after my sister gets some relief. I would like to ask you that based on your experience and past cases do you think you can help her. Also would you recommend that she gets surgery done or shall we avoid it at the moment.

We are from India and I can visit after some time and when my sister gets better we can visit for a personal consultation too. However at the moment I request your opinion regarding what do you think in her case. Thank you,

Reply: There is not much choice …no body can cure any cancer. 

But doc, you mention on your site not to panic. Looking at your site I understand that with your medicines one can keep it at bay and live disease free n long healthy life. Please tell me if you can help. Thanks.

Reply:  It is hard for me to make any promise … because I am not in  a business of making money trying to mislead patients. If you think that I can help you, bring all the medical reports and come and see me. But before that please read what I wrote in my website www.cacare.org about help on line.
