I am a 46 year old male with a diagnosis of papillary thyroid cancer which has spread to several locations. My surgery was June 5th, 2003 where they removed the total thyroid, two fist sized tumors near my esophagus, a partial radical neck surgery, and a nodule in my lung (several remain in the lungs). I am scheduled for TRMI radiation this coming Tuesday for the remaining mass in my neck. Six weeks, five days a week. I guess after that they will do the I-131 for the remaining nodules in the lungs. My questions have to do with nutritional supplements. I am a fighter and want to throw anything and everything at this that can help. I have already begun research and have changed my diet to all organic foods, trying to quit smoking ( with little success, the zyban made me break out in hives) although I have cut down considerably. Is anyone out there following a similar course of action? Anyone using the Flora-essence tea formula for cancer or other supplements with success? I have heard of anti-tumor properties and support for radiation with the spice Turmeric and have added it to my diet. Also "Just Barley", Whey protein, lots of fruit and veggie smoothies. I was told to stay away from the antioxidants until after the radiation because of the release of free radicals. I am so happy to find this site and will share freely any information or help that I can with anyone. Oh, almost forgot. I live on Catalina Island, 25 miles off the coast of Los Angeles, CA. And will need to commute daily for the treatments. Any suggestions for sea sickness?
