We would like to go to Penang to get consultation from you and we fully  understand the visiting day and time are:
Fridays (3 p.m. to 5 p.m.) and Sundays (7 p.m. to 9 p.m.)
Appreciate if you could let us have your centre¹s contact number. Thank you very much.

Rectum Cancer from Hong Kong

I am a 53 years old male. I was diagnosed to have rectosigmoid cancer in 5th September 2013. The tumor is about 6cm in size with 3 metastasis pelvic lymph nodes. It is a rectum adenocarcinoma in pathology. There is no improvement after 25 times radiotherapy and 6 times chemotherapy since 15 October. Please help.

Attached is my investigation records for your reference.

Colon-Liver Cancer: Go home and die

Dr., last 2 days I went back to hospital to see the surgeon as I want to know how he would explain my condition in detail. During our conversation, I took down notes down for your reference, as follows:

Wong:   Dr. what actually had happen to me? Can you explain in more detail? I thought this is only a minor surgery in closing my colostomy. I did the CT scan and colonscopy in Oct, 2012 before coming in to closet on Jan, 2013. You said everything is fine. The only thing is in the future I pass bowel a little bit difficult since my rectum is narrow.

Dr. X :  Your cancer tumors spread too fast after surgery although we have checked it before surgery.

W: Why these few days I pass bowel there’s a lot of blood (50% stools and 50% blood) coming out and the anus burn and so painful?

Dr. X :   Oh. your anus pain every time you pass bowel is because it is too narrow to pass through. There’s blood in your bowel mainly because your cancer tumors had spread and its messy inside your colon. This I can’t help you anything as you had stage 4 CA Rectum although it has been removed in 2012. It had recurred.

W:     Can you do any surgery to open the colostomy as previously I had before? I don’t want to suffer like this.

Dr. X :  The risk is too high. Maybe only 30% chance of survival if I do the surgery again because your intestine had burst and moreover the tumors are everywhere in your colon. You will die on the table due to serve bleeding. 

W:  That means I leave it like this, everyday suffering from tummy bloatness and waiting to die one of these days? Do you think how long can I survive?

Dr. X  : I’m sorry we really can’t do anything. Go home and spend your precious time with your family while you are able to now. Maybe you have less than 3 months to live or even shorter.

W:   I am really disappointed with what you have said as I had full confidence in you but after all these, you say you can’t do anything. Since last year I had took my CEA till Jan this year. My index never exceeded 6 ng/mL.  Lowest was 2.5 ng/mL. One last question:  why now there’re stools coming out from the wound that you close the colostomy.

Dr. X:   Stools do come out sometimes because you can’t move your bowel at the down part. Once you can move it, there won’t be any stools coming out again. It will close by itself if everything is fine one of these days. So don’t worry about that. You wear the colostomy bag in the mean time.

Dr. Chris, I won’t give up just like this. I will continue to take your herbs as every time you said CA Care Center is the last stop for people like us.

The patient’s full story will be presented later  – including his video conversation with us.

Cancer of the Rectum from Johor

Thanks, Dr. Chris for your info. I’ve rectal cancer at stage 4. Have done my surgery (in Jan, 2012), 11 cycles of chemotherapy (2011) and 25 times of radiotherapy (2011). But the tumors recur that spread to both of my lungs and liver.

Now the oncologist here suggest to go for further 9 to 12 cycles of Avastin and 5-FU chemo. I’ve refused. I’ll start the diet that Mr. Lee gave me and will have the herbs soon. One of these days, I’ll fly over to Penang and meet you. Once again, thanks a lot for your unique info for cancer that I’ve learn a lot by reading from your website. Hope to see you soon.

God Bless you.

Rectal Cancer from Hong Kong: Chemo did not cure him – oncologist said more chemo!

Dear Dr.Teo,

With reference from Miss H, case of Ca Breast. Patient,  Mr S aged 53, is suffering from CA Rectum with metastasis to Liver and Lung. He completed Chemo (oxialplatin and Xeloda) in 29-March-2011 and Radiotherapy to Rectum on 26-May-2011.

But now the cancer relapsed again, with enlarged Liver area and abdominal distention and moderate ascites and mild ankle oedema. The oncology doctor suggests chemo (Campto and Cetuximab) again to relieve symptoms.

The recent blood report : HB= 9.5 and CEA = above 500. Chest X-Ray shows tiny tumours come back again.

Mr. S also has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes and Coronary Artery Disease with stunting done in 2005. There is a small benign tumour with fluid in the Brain.

Medications: Norvasc 5mg

Lasix 40mg

Sprironolactone 25mg

Megestrol Acetate 40mg

Diamicron MR 30mg

Tramadol 50 Stada 50mg

and some Chinese Medications.

Now he has poor appetite, poor mobility, sleep all the day and have more than five times bowel movements (sometimes with blood) .Non productive cough, and he is not breathing well. He feels pain over the lumbar spine (the previous radiation area). All his four limbs feel numbness because of chemo drug. He has palpitation with pulse 98/min.  Cold sweat.

We are looking for your expert reply!
