This is what many doctors and scientists have to say about chemotherapy: “The majority of the cancer patients in this country die because of chemotherapy, which does not cure breast, colon or lung cancer. This has been documented for over a decade and nevertheless doctors still utilize chemotherapy to fight these tumors.”

Polls and questionnaires show that three doctors out of four (75 per cent) would refuse any chemotherapy because of its ineffectiveness against the disease and its devastating effects on the entire human organism (Allen Levin, MD, UCSF, “The Healing of Cancer”, Marcus Books, 1990). “According to medical associations, the notorious and dangerous side effects of drugs have become the fourth main cause of death after infarction, cancer, and apoplexy” (Journal of the American Medical Association, April 15, 1998).

Conventional treatments use lethal chemicals to kill cancer cells, but also harm the healthy cells and causes the body to grow weaker in its natural defenses. Therfore, chemotherapy treatment has a poor life-long cure rate. Cancer returns after a certain amount of years, or even weeks. Surgery is ineffective because it does not address the cause of the cancer. Whether it be poor nutrition, a toxic or acidic body, the cancer will return at some point.

The reason orthodox medicine treats cancer like a chronic disease is because orthodox treatments, in high doses, would kill the patient long before they would cure the cancer. This failure of orthodox medicine to safely kill cancer cells (i.e. safely target cancer cells) is why they talk about a “5 year cure rate” rather than a true cure rate. If they can keep the patient alive for 5 years they consider the patient to be “cured,” even if they die in the sixth year. Because of greed and corruption, orthodox medicine uses the most profitable treatments for cancer, thus their true cure rate is around 3%.

Natural cancer treatments, or more commonly “alternative cancer treatments,” generally do absolutely no harm to healthy cells. Alternative cancer treatments do not harm or kill healthy cells. Natural cancer treatments that kill cancer cells can be given in much higher doses than chemotherapy. Thus, even if the mutations of natural molecules, called drugs, were more potent at killing cancer cells than the original natural molecules, because of the superiority of natural substances at targeting cancer cells or leaving healthy cells healthy, alternative cancer treatments can be far more effective than orthodox drugs at treating cancer!

Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery virtually destroy a person’s immune system. Herbal cancer treatments will actually build the person’s immune system to make sure the cancer will not return.

Alternative cancer therapies are based on two treatment methods. The first treatment method is based on strengthening the body so it can fight off the cancer. It is accomplished by the building up of the immune system, detoxification, proper nutrition, and special nutrients or herbs. The second treatment method is based on killing only the cancer cells and is accomplished by alkalinizing the body and with the use of specific anti-cancer herbs. Alternative cancer therapies work because they get to the root of the problem and fix it.

Many of us have been lead to believe that only science “holds the cure”. However, some of the most commonly used cancer treatments have been developed from herbs. The U. S. National Cancer Institute has identified over 3,000 plants with anti-cancer properties.

      I know nothing about dropping hair, lymphatic cancer, or ptimal epilipsy but I do have Lupus.
      Lupus is basically an overactive immune system that attacks health parts of the body. It is a serious disease but not always a deadly disease. People with Lupus can live a decent life that is not necessarily shortened due to the disease. Hope this helps 🙂

    Elisa test positive, Western Blot negative, what does it mean?
    About three months ago I went to the doctor for a regular pap. I was very positive that everything was going to come out fine since I had gone to the doctor three months prior to this last visit and everything came out fine. Now this time around they told me that I tested positive on the Elisa test, but negative for the Western Blot. I went to a clinic that focus only in attending HIV patients. They told me that they would re-do the test, which they did and the results were the same. Now from the time that I had the first test done from the second was over a month closer to the two. The doctors in the clinic are almost positive that its not HIV but they told me it might be Lupus or Cancer or any variation of autoimmune disease and truthfully I don’t even know where to start or how to ask for help. Making matters worse I don’t have any insurance or health care and my parents aren’t working, so I don’t have money for treatment???? I need help where do I go????

    A difficult question regarding Lupus (SLE type) can a Dr. or other knowledable person tell help me?
    Okay, I was dx’d with lupus 23 yrs. ago. My kidneys failed requiring dialysis and a transplant about 13 years ago after a serious flare and a long hospital stay for treatment a Nocardia infection which left me with abscesses in my lungs and brain. The Nocardia was thought to be brought on by treatment for a serious flare in progress which was being treated with a once a month with IV therapy and tablets I took at home. I cannot remember the name of the med. but it was a drug used to treat some types of cancer. Yes, I was very ill, had seizures and required to have a ventilator and tracheotomy to breathe and was on TPN for a month and a half or better. My kidneys failed at that time. After I was well enough I had a transplant and subsequently put on immunosupressives to maintain the graft. I have had no flares since my extended hospital stay for the Nocardia. My nephrologist told me that many times Lupus kind of fizzles out after it destroys a major organ. Why they do not know, one theory is that the immunsuppressive therapy play a part which makes sense. If this is true then why do they not use these medications to treat a flare? Is this due to the potential complications associated with the immuosuppression therapy or another reason? Or is it something associated with losing my kidneys that burns the Lupus out? During the time in dialysis I also had no flares and was actually weaned completely off prednisone I might add.

      Sometimes they do use them, but this is only a very recent development. Now that they have made the anti rejection drugs suffer they have been using them in limited cases of SLE and other immune conditions.

      I was recently treated in this way and it saved my kidneys.

      So all I have to say is THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! Sadly, your suffering and others like you provides the research to use these medications on people more newly diagnosed.

      I am only sorry they didn’t have the chance to use it for you.

      I wish you all the best and pray for your continued good health and longevity.

      My sincerest thanks

    In New York, can you receive SSI and Public Assistance? Which do you apply for first? Better to leave one out?
    Public Assistance here in New York seems to be very restrictive, and goes overboard in trying to “get people off the rolls”. According to my mother who went through the process, she was wheelchair bound, so the worker didn’t believe her at the end of the review, and at the the street corner held her up and just dropped her. My mom came back horrified and bruised, and everyone had to lift her up, and they still made her attend a mandatory meeting in manhattan after that that wasn’t handicapped accessible, where she had to leave her chair downstairs and embarrassingly crawl several flights of steps on hands and one knee (the other bandaged from surgery) until her joits swelled up and she started to pass out while an ambulance was called, No one bothered to tell her that they were supposed to come to the house as a homebound case. Outside a woman with breast cancer on chemo, and a woman dying with lupus with months to live facing eviction were all turned down because they were also “completely healthy” Once my mom qualified for a housebound case, the agency filed a fake recertification with false information on it and threatened to have her arrested with fraud until we contacted every government official we could about the fact that we tape every official conversation and sent all documents certified returned receipt CC to other officials as well. But this is the lengths they go to get people off the rolls, so……

    Ive been disabled for 2 years and housebound, but was so scared of the process that I haven’t applied, but I need the money, I am absolutely horrified at the lengths they now go to get people off of welfare, even with medical proof from their OWN doctors of disability, even making up fake fraud cases and threatening arrest (thank God we record everything and keep records), but that is so much work., But when approved the benefits do come quicker.

    SSI on the other hand Ive heard isn’t so abusive but they say here the hospital social worker where i was for awhile when i couldnt eat food) that EVERYONE here is denied the first time and will only get benefits if they appeal to the last level, which can take years, but once you get SSI, Public Assistance leaves you alone with the harassment because its now federal money.

    Being so sick, It will be hard to record eveyone, and have a nurse send everything certified return receipt and keep piles of records just to prove my “compliance”

    Should I just apply for SSI and then PA (Public Assistance) right after, or the other way around, or do one and wait then the other? Im just not ready for the government’s abuse, but I really need money, and my savings is now getting empty. It is so corrupt, and I can’t just fight everyone, because i’m physically exhausted already, I don’t know if I can even handle either “process”

    I really appreciate any advice from anyone.

    Note: For those that hate people on “welfare” before this, don’t bother, you never know you future health, I worked several jobs, even hard labor moving coquina rocks by riverbeds, and for the National Parks Service, Printing Press, Office Assistant, Phone Technical Assistance, you name it. about 2 points from valedictorian, and a 3.8 university average..I didn’t still have enough credits for SSDI, and was too young. Lost ALOT of weight, could barely eat, balanced between a wheelchair and cane, and my muscles stopped working for a while, treatments also had effects on metabolism fats etc, and my hands are often so dry they are solid, and touching paper is painful, Someone else has to open my mail for me.

    *So what do I do? I never needed assistance, but I’m scared of being bullied, and don’t want to get sicker, what is the easiest way to get assistance, SSI, or Public Assistance. (I also think I read that if you apply for one here you must eventually apply for the other in a certain amount of days, and then i think Public assistance takes your SSI money from you anyway to pay their expenses.

    Anyone familiar with these systems please help, I cant handle their abuse. Its already almost killing my mother the way they treat her. And I wonder if thats their goal. I dont want my health to suffer anymore than it does.

    *What do I do?

    1. bumblebee

      Wow this is shocking to hear, absolutely awful and heartwrenching. You gals need to move out of NYC and move to a rural part of NY. I am in Rochester and have never been treated like that. I suffer from depression/bipolar and I get cash assistance each month from welfare. Thanks to the good Lord I was approved for ssi after almost 3 years. The way that you are being treated is horrible, cant believe it. Sometimes the Lord is trying to tell you something. That something could be for you to relocate. No american citizen should be afraid to ask for help, especially when illegals gets it so easily.

  5. mudawryyy1

    very serious family/moral issue i need help. please read!?
    good day. i mean that as a greeting, not that it’s a good day. for it’s a horrible day for myself. why you ask? my mother is dying of cancer. shes my last living relative and i’m really afraid of what i’m going to do after shes gone. i’m only 17 and don’t have a job. she doesn’t have much money either, so i nothing ot live off of. at the rate i’m going, i’ll be dropping out of school one year shy of a diploma. no prom for me. no graduation ceremony. no getting to finally be an upperclassman. i’ve never known my father, as i was a product of rape. i hadn’t actually known this until around the time my mother was diagnosed. she broke down and confessed this to me, probably thinking that i had a right to know before she died. it only made things worst though. can YOU imagine being told your mother is going to by dying and leaving you all alone to fend for yourself with no money and then finding out you were never wanted, all on the same day? as you can see, i’ve had quite my share of hardships for such a young age. the reason i mostly feel bad (and the reason i’m psoting this all) is because of a event that took place just tonight. she was discharged from the hospital, since she didn’t have any way to pay the bills for treatment, and didn’t want to leave me with a dept when she died (her own words). when we were finally back at home, possibly the worst thing that could have came on tv, came on. it was an episode of House in which the patient was being treated for the wrong disease. and then House utters the line “it’s not lupus”. this was startling to hear, as it’s exatly what happened to my mother, and what the doctor said. she was diagnosed for lupus rght off the bat, and the treatment for it only made the cancer worse. and the words that amde her cry when the doctor told ehr this were “it’s not lupus”. so there in the living room, my mother broke down crying. she didn’t tell me why, but i knew. it was obvious. i tried to comfort her, but she told me to just go away, and that things would have been easier if i were just never born. and i think i’m starting to agree. if i wasn’t born, she would have had a normal college life, found a nice husband, and be able to pay for cancer treatment or insurance rather than having to support a teenager as a single mom. i lost my temper at that moment though, and slapped her. she slapped back and all of a sudden, i was fighting a dying woman. i got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said your moving with your auntie and uncle in belair. i whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said fresh and had a dice in the mirror. if anything i could say that this cab was rare but i thought man forget it yo home to belair. i pulled up to a house about seven or eight and i yelled to the cabbie yo holmes smells ya later. looked at my kingdom i was finally there to sit on my throan as the prince of belair.

    Okay from a religious stand point is this suicide and will it send a person to h e l l if a person has life?
    threatening cancer and their survival rate is very slim and they refuse chemo and the physician gives them pain medicine and they eventually due to the pain shot their self up full of morphine until they blow their heart up unintentionally. Is this considered suicide? Or for example a person is suffering from lupus and refuses medical treatment for it the physician still gives them pain medicine they sign a DNR and eventually has a seizure due to the lupus. Is this considered suicide? Please any advice is dually appreciated but please answer all or both of my questions?

    1. (sassy and tangy) is ho ho hoing

      In the case of cancer, I don’t see how refusing treatment for a terminal diagnosis is suicide. Deciding to let ‘nature take its course’ is just that.

      For the lupus, I again feel the same way. A DNR is just to indicate that you don’t want ‘life prolonging’ measures, no CPR, no intubation. In that case you are saying that you don’t want your life sustained by outside means.

      You used pain meds in both of your examples, neither of which I see as suicidal behavior, but instead seeking freedom from physical pain, with the assistance of (hopefully) narcotics, from two very painful diseases.

    Just a rant b/c I have no one to talk to?
    I am about to turn 33 and I believe I have a perfectly valid reason for depression, so I am not looking to be talked out of it. First, the good stuff: I am finishing a PhD; have a very good, secure job in my dream field; have a beautiful apartment; and am reasonably attractive (people keep asking me if I am a model, but I think it is because I look interesting rather than because I am gorgeous and that’s fine). Now the bad stuff: my kidneys failed when I was 25 because I have lupus so I started dialysis for 5 years while I worked and began my PhD program. I had very little help; I basically did these years alone. I got a transplant when I was 30 and 8 months after the transplant, I was diagnosed with lymphoma because of the immuno-suppressant drugs I was taking for the transplant. I did chemo for 6 rounds, then while recovering I found this new job in another city. I wanted to be away from all the sickness in the old city, so I moved. It has been good but stressful. A lot of long hours and travel. I found out a few months ago that my transplant is not doing great so I signed up for a transplant list again. After doing all the tests, my oncologist says that I would have to wait 3 years before I can get a new kidney…so my name will stay on the list, but I can’t get an offer until 2011. I haven’t dating anyone since I was 29 and am starting t feel very self-conscious around my friends and family with their husbands and children. Because of the chemo, I can’t have kids (I don’t even have my period anymore, so I feel less feminine). I am starting to have a hard time hanging out with these couples with their kids because I feel worse after a day with them than I do just sitting in the house alone. I have gone back and forth with wanting to kill myself, but in the end it is pretty lame though I don’t rule it out. My stomach has been bothering me again lately and if it is cancer, I have decided not to treat it. I am going to check if refusal to treat counts as suicide. I want my mom to get my insurance and pension and 401k. If it doesn’t, then I will take the minimum treatment. That’s it. After a long weekend on the couch; I didn’t want to bother any friends because they have their families to take care of. And I don’t want to stress my mother out. Thanks for “listening.”

    1. Atlas

      You’re right that you have many valid reasons for depression, but you also have so many reasons to be proud. One of my best friends died of Lupus at 17, so I know how difficult it can be, and yet you’ve survived it and thrived in your field and pursued a PhD. I have Hodgkin’s so I do know what it’s like to battle that disease, and I’m very scared about fertility too. (I’m 17.5 now). There are things you have no control over, and to an extent, there’s freedom in that because you cannot berate yourself for failing to reach a mark. Keep on persevering, and seek help for your depression. I’ve been battling wicked mood swings and depression since starting chemo over the summer, and it’s been really beneficial to go to therapy.

      33 is still very young. You have plenty of years ahead of you to marry and adopt, and you are not in a race with anybody else.

      I absolutely LOVE the site I’m Too Young for This, and have linked it below. It’s a support group for young adults with cancer, and they’re amazing.

      I bet more people admire you than you realize. Keep fighting.
      I admire all that you’ve accomplished.

    My husband’s mother recycled my Christmas gift to me from last year. How can I respond?
    I spent a lot of time picking out a quality gift for her last year, and was shocked when it turned out to be the nicest thing she sent (back) to me this year!

    What makes this serious is that my husband has cancer, I’ve been severely ill as well, and my son is too young to drive. Since we were too ill to buy each other any gifts to speak of- her boxes were the only ones under our tree and we thought it was nice at first. Unfortunately, she seems to be playing hurtful mind-games: sending my son and husband some normal stuff, but sending me calendars, key-chains, and other trinkets connected with her charity mail. She has also sent: stamps, thank-you cards, and a disposable camera. Since she already admitted to sending “messages” in mail and gifts that someone in the family is not writing or giving enough thank-you cards- all this seems fairly obvious.

    I wanted to get along with my mother-in-law, but she actually seems angry about my years going to the hospital for plasmapheresis/chemo/surgeries, and other treatments. I stopped discussing it much. However, when I am too ill to do something she wants me to do for her son- she says I am “too upset” to do it, and finally she admitted that she never believed that my illness was “real/worthy of attention” (I’ve had a rare life- threatening LUPUS plus complications). Unfortunately, I am the only one taking care of her son and my boy- and I don’t feel like I can dismiss my husband’s mother. On one hand, he may need to get calls from her, but on the other hand, I may now have cancer as well and I’m tired of being completely ignored about my health while she writes us about her latest medications etc.. We all feel like her behavior is cold- even my boy, who was the first one to notice her attitude with the gifts, but none of us knows what to do, as her attitude shows in many other hurtful ways as well.

    I would like GOOD answers to this, please- from people who have had experience with either hardship, in-law relations, and/or etiquette. I would also like a Christian perspective to this- since I would like to be as loving and genuine as possible. Most of the answers I got on a similar thread were idiotic, and I’d like to have a real thought to consider.

    1. Ms. Bou

      I am so sorry to read this post. You have enough to deal with, your husband being seriously ill and your illness, these both must make it difficult to deal with normal family dealings let alone a family member who seems to have an agenda. Don’t let this unhappy woman spoil your holiday, that is clearly part of her agenda. Enjoy the closeness of your little family and ignore your mother-in-law’s antics. I realize that is easier said than done. But, as you said yourself, you want to maintain some contact because of your husband’s illness. Let the nastiness she sends out go right over your head and just be kind and loving as much as you possibly can. I realize this is difficult and if it weren’t for both you and your husband being ill, I might advise you otherwise. But, it’s not worth the extra energy to get upset and it only upsets you more and makes your illness more difficult to deal with. Save the energy to deal with the more important things in life. Having some fun with your family, a night of movies and hot chocolate sounds a lot more appealing than writing a letter dealing with a situation that will only get more out of control. In a way, this is taking the moral high ground, but the reality of it is, that this is the healthiest way of dealing with a no win situation. You take care and know that you have a good heart and a lot on your plate right now. Others can see that even if your mother-in-law can’t.

    Do you think your medical system should be so focused on what not to cover you for?
    Reasons you’ll not be insured in the US:

    Had cover through company plan, were covered for an illness, moved to another company with moratorium underwriting, illness no longer covered.

    As above, the girl had cancer. Adding to that, Diabetes, Lupus and a host of other diseases automatically preclude someone ever getting insurance cover even for accidents.

    Company not paying it’s bills.

    Plan does not cover what ails you.

    Reported claim incorrectly.

    No money.

    Forgot to / were not informed of renewal date and missed it. Pre-existing conditions likely reinstated.

    Treatment does not reach your deductible level.

    And so on. Many reasons that have nothing to do with laziness.

    Reasons you’ll not be covered in Canada:

    No cure/treatment invented

    Not a Canadian

    Shouldn’t your system be trying to find ways to cure you instead of loopholes to exclude you from treatment?

    1. Jacob W

      The problem is your premise. Health Insurance is not Health Care. Insurance is a financial tool to protect your financial assets. It all got seriously skewed by Government intervention. The answer is to end all the stupid government regulations and allow insurance companies to provide whatever level of coverage their customers find appropriate. Costs are out of control because we are forcing insurance on people at levels that are inappropriate. For instance, a policy that covers doctors visits, prescription drugs and regular screening is expensive and totally unnecessary for people in good health under 40 years old. But even an 18 year old in his first job gets this level of coverage when what he really needs is a simple catastrophic care plan that only covers hospitalization for serious disease or injury. He does not need coverage he will not use.

      BTW-you forgot to include two more reasons you not be covered in Canada: treatment is exists but is too expensive, you may die waiting for treatment.

    Fibromyalgia symptoms and treatments?
    I havent been diagnosed with fibromylagia yet, and am half afraid to tell my doctor thats what I think I have. Shell probably tell me im nuts, plus I read that theres no real test to say…Yes you have it. But after accidentally stumbling across an ad for Lyrica, and it listed some symptoms of fibromyalgia, I thought to do some research on the subject. Ive been back and fourth to the doctor…goodness like 15 times in the last 2 years! Initially just complaining about extreme fatigue, troubles falling asleep, and not being able to stay asleep once I fell asleep. Then it stemmed into joint pain complaints. I did find out I had lyme disease, so my doctor thought thats what the problem was. Well I took the meds, got re tested and the lyme is cured. This is over a year ago now…but my symptoms are worse. Been back again a few times since then, and she just said theres nothing wrong with me, im just depressed. She tried giving me sleeping pills, which just made me more groggy so I stopped taking them. Then she gave me some off brand stress management med… not quite a depression med, which didnt help. After doing reaserch on fibromyalgia, im SURE thats what I have. Besides the extreme tiredness, and lack of ability to stay asleep, I have horrible muscle and joint aches. I wake up and feel like ive excersised for hours the day before! Im stiff and find it painful to move. What really got me though, is I have pain in all the places ive read online that affect people with fibromyalgia the most. The neck, hips, shoulders, and knees. Thats where most of my pain is. I have frequent headaches, and the other thing that really sold me was the IBS thats linnked with fibromylagia. Ive always had bad cramps and gas like I have to go to the bathroom realllly bad even when I dont have to go, and my bowel movements have always been strange, going alot some days, not going for a day or two at other times. Ive always wondered why until I read about IBS. I know fibromyalgia can mimic lupus and other conditions, but my doctor did test me for lupus and a few others and they were all negative. I also read that fibromyalgia can come about after very traumatic times, and it seems like mine started about 2 1/2 years ago. And ALOT has happened to me in that time. My sister was murdered 3 years ago, my mom died 2 years ago, my brother had a cancer scare shortly after our mom died. So thats another reason I suspect fibromyalgia. So does it really sound like I have fibromyalgia? And what can I do to help it? I cant live with this tiredness anymore! I dont even care about the pain as much as I do about constantly being tired and fatigued!

      its possible you have fms

      but its also possible you have a post lymes syndroome
      lymes can cause permanant symtpoms if not treated early enough

      it could also justbe the lack of sleep

      a better sleep med is trazadone–its an antidepressant, but only taken at night.in a smaller dose

      .much safer than traditional sleeping pills

      most docs dont know what fms is and use it as a general label for pain

      they will say the pain of lymes is fms..that is not true..fms is its own specific neuro condition

    Would you support Euthanasia? Do you think it is wrong? And Abortion Too…?
    I think that conscious people in a terminal condition, (chronic Lupus, Cancer, Alzheimer’s etc) should have the right to be spared the pain, but they must also have had some treatment. Also, I believe that people in comas should remain alive, until there is a prognosis that the brain damage is too severe.
    As for Abortion, I believe that an abortion must take place no later than the second trimester, and both parents must consent (because too many women get forced into it, and I believe that a woman should never be coerced into an important belief), and that it should be legal for rape, incest, Severe e deformities, and possibility of death to the mother.
    What about you?

    1. Atheist Kiba is Atheist

      I agree with euthanasia in the sense that a dying person in pain should be allowed to relieve themselves of the agony. Assisted suicide is also a matter between the dying person and the assisting loved one.

      However, if euthanasia was ever legalised, it is without a doubt that you would see older people dying more frequently because of an insurance payout, or because the family member knows of a will in their favour, or because the family doesn’t want to ‘waste their time’ taking care of the elder family member once they’ve become ‘too old to be useful’. It would be too easy to take advantage of the system for it to be legalised, unfortunately.

      Agreed on the abortion front. I think 22 to 24 weeks is the latest you should be allowed an abortion. However, I do not believe it must be consented by both parents. It would be nice, of course, if both agreed, but to say both must consent because too many women are forced makes no logical sense. If the father is forcing the mother to consent, then dual consent is still forced. Dual consent helps nothing, only makes it more difficult for women to get rid of the foetus when they don’t want it and the father does. But yes, I think there should be some actions taken into ensuring that the father is not forcing the mother (for example, perhaps psychologist involvement? But that would be difficult to get people to do…)

      Yes, it should be legal for rape, incest, severe deformities and possibility of death to the mother. I don’t agree, and I suspect you too don’t agree, that a woman should be allowed to go have unprotected sex and then run off to the abortion clinic every few weeks. (But how could this be fixed? You can’t revoke her right to have an abortion if abortions are legal… It’s just like the matter of euthanasia. If these things are legal, people will take advantage of the system.)

      Both issues are a double-sided sword.

    i’v done something horrible. pls read all?
    good day. i mean that as a greeting, not that it’s a good day. for it’s a horrible day for myself. why you ask? my mother is dying of cancer. shes my last living relative and i’m really afraid of what i’m going to do after shes gone. i’m only 17 and don’t have a job. she doesn’t have much money either, so i nothing ot live off of. at the rate i’m going, i’ll be dropping out of school one year shy of a diploma. no prom for me. no graduation ceremony. no getting to finally be an upperclassman. i’ve never known my father, as i was a product of rape. i hadn’t actually known this until around the time my mother was diagnosed. she broke down and confessed this to me, probably thinking that i had a right to know before she died. it only made things worst though. can YOU imagine being told your mother is going to by dying and leaving you all alone to fend for yourself with no money and then finding out you were never wanted, all on the same day? as you can see, i’ve had quite my share of hardships for such a young age. the reason i mostly feel bad (and the reason i’m psoting this all) is because of a event that took place just tonight. she was discharged from the hospital, since she didn’t have any way to pay the bills for treatment, and didn’t want to leave me with a dept when she died (her own words). when we were finally back at home, possibly the worst thing that could have came on tv, came on. it was an episode of House in which the patient was being treated for the wrong disease. and then House utters the line “it’s not lupus”. this was startling to hear, as it’s exatly what happened to my mother, and what the doctor said. she was diagnosed for lupus rght off the bat, and the treatment for it only made the cancer worse. and the words that amde her cry when the doctor told ehr this were “it’s not lupus”. so there in the living room, my mother broke down crying. she didn’t tell me why, but i knew. it was obvious. i tried to comfort her, but she told me to just go away, and that things would have been easier if i were just never born. and i think i’m starting to agree. if i wasn’t born, she would have had a normal college life, found a nice husband, and be able to pay for cancer treatment or insurance rather than having to support a teenager as a single mom. i lost my temper at that moment though, and slapped her. she slapped back and all of a sudden, i was fighting a dying woman. i got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said your moving with your auntie and uncle in belair. i whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said fresh and had a dice in the mirror. if anything i could say that this cab was rare but i thought man forget it yo home to belair. i pulled up to a house about seven or eight and i yelled to the cabbie yo holmes smells ya later. looked at my kingdom i was finally there to sit on my throan as the prince of belair.

      If you live in the U.S. you can get social security until you are 18 once your mom passes away.

      Also, I suggest getting a therarist to work you through this really tough time in your life. Talk to a school counselor and see if they can get you in touch with someone. You shouldn’t have to go through this alone.

    Is it cancer or something else – many tests?
    Ok ive got a relative 48 years of age female.

    Has very low iron levels – gets puffy easily has recently seen doctor who has ordered the following tests – feels very fatigued, probable anemia

    Full blood count, FGY test, CEA test. A CT scan, colonscopy and endoscopy. Family history of chrons disease, also lupus.

    Doctor isnt saying what could be the problem ( anything from ulcer to pollop – GP suggested that it was unlikley to be cancer) though said testing was urgent, suggested could be a GI bleed. Otherwise healthy, no blood in stool, no lumps around abdomen area but has had some minor stomach pain.

    Celiac disease is one of the blood tests indicators thats being looked at, what is the chance or thoughts on what could be im a bit worried thinking it could be colon or stomach cancer, could be something as simple as malabsortion , in the last 4 months has had glandular fevor anyone with any thoughts ?

    I should add my relative asked the doctor what the likelihood of cancer was and was told doctor would be surprised if it was cancer. Indicating that it probably was an outside chance – tests are happening next week anyway – so doctor is being level and tests being done

    From what ive read if it was more cancer concern feacel stool testing would have been done plus an MRI which at the moment hasnt been ordered. So could the be looking for something else and if something else what could that be

    In reply to the third contributor ( thankyou for the additional information) based on the information i have ( i dont think a stool sample was asked for) other elements of the blood test are testing for chrons disease and a marker for celiaic.

    If it isnt cancer what other problems would fit the general medical area that the doctor might be looking for ( ie what could be the possible disorders or other medical problems they would be lookign for) if its cancer my relative is well prepared for treatment and so forth. It would be hopefully caught in early stages) but what other conditions of a less serious nature be likley to be what dr might be looking for
    In reply to kateyn i live with this relative and its definetly not a eating disorder. She is off work and im pretty well around her all the time. There were confirmed low iron levels a few years ago was put down to respiratory issues those cleared up but there has been a recurrence of low iron levels ( plus folate levels) b12 levels were ok. This woman who is 48 eats quite a bit its more the absorption thats the issue, the real issue is whats causing the low iron absorption

    Thanks for youre contribution anyway, eating disorders are a serious concern but in this case no its not the focus

    1. Daisee

      My guess is iron deficiency anemia…. because she has low folate level and she had the same symptoms previously.

      Abdominal pain is also a symptom of iron deficiency anemia.

      The cause can be blood loss through the gastrointestinal tract caused by colon cancer, hookworms, hemorrhoids, anal fissures, irritable bowel syndrome, aspirin-induced bleeding, blood clotting disorders, or diverticulosis.

      I really doubt that is caused by colon cancer. I think by now she would have more symptoms like bowel changes, vomiting, lack of apetite, vomiting, bloating and feeling full.

      Plus…if they were looking for colon cancer, they would have ordered the colonoscopy but not the endoscopy.

      Iron deficiency anemia has a good prognosis. Let’s see how good I am at diagnosing over the internet….LOL

      Best of luck.
