Hi my dad 53, was diagnosed w stomach cancer stage 4 a few wks ago. It's spread to most his liver so surgery isn't an option. We are scheduled to start kemo in few days, but all of us dreading it as it's admittance that we will be accepting his inevitable maximum life span of a few years. We are even considering going to Korea for a treatment where they inject treatments into his liver at hopes of shrinking the tumor? At this point my dad rather go for a slight wildcard that has a 1% chance than start keno that has 0% chance of being cured. What a cruel decision to have to make between two terrible options. I hate cancer.
My dad has always been my rock and the best grandfather my 3 yr old has been lucky enough to have. This is killingbme as most family menders are convinced that I need to get on meds bc of my depression over my poor dad ....
Can anyone recommend any other alternatives to explore? We know all about the proven kemo treatments to extend life, diets .. I'm looking more for optional clinical trials or great doctors or cancer centers? We have access to Hopkins since we live near Baltimore, thank God, but pls is there anything else out there other than apricot seeds and orgo diets???
Thank you for reading ...
