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.

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.

Cancer of the Rectum

Dear Doctor,

My sister who just turned 60 was diagnosed with rectal cancer about 2 months ago (stage 1 or 2). Besides, the cancer she is almost 95% deaf in both years and she developed neurofabriomatisis on the whole body when she was in her teens. This skin problem has also affected her joints especially at her knees. The consultant doctor recommended 7 weeks of radiation with chemo. We (her siblings) decided to look for alternative therapy.

She is on the Sabah Snake Grass juicing (50 leaves – now increase to 100 leaves per day). As well as cancer fighting vegetables juicing. …like broccoli, cauliflower, beet root, lemon grass, turmeric & others. Recently she also tried the Far Infrared Rays (thermo-acupressure therapy) for about a month. The wound at the rectum has actually dried up (less blood seeping out). I would appreciate your professional advice.

Thank You & regards,

Reply: Do what you think is right. And that makes you happy. I have written enough of what we are doing in my website: www.cacare.com I have nothing less to say or advise. Just read what I wrote about what we are doing – and they are very much different from what you are doing. Write me again if what you are doing helps or effective (after one or two months). I too like to learn your method.
