I am havng surgery 11/2/10 and will be in hospital 7=10 days. Cancer is surrounding bladder and blocking kidney and of a "rare" type they say -- only a handful since 1991, no protocol. They are removing bladder, urinary diversion, and all female organs and whatever else...... I am 70 years old. female. Am trying to build up immune system, no sugar, no red meat, no white flour, etc. I don't see much information about good healthy diets for this. Am very new to this discussion board (and to cancer). Is there something I have missed? Is anyone else interested in this? I am not overweight, and was previously pretty active. Am also trying to stay positive. And I have a wonderful prayerful support system. Any diet information would be appreciated. Judyeee

Hi Judy, in February 2010 my urologist informed me that I had an aggressive form of bladder cancer. This news turned my life around. After an initial TUR operation, I decided that my best option was to adopt a completely different daily diet and exercise in accordance with the diet guidelines of a Dutch doctor Cornelis Moerman (1893-1988). The AVL cancer clinic in Amsterdam has respected my choice and demonstrated their willingness to perform a cystoscopy with accompanying tests every 3 months. In my first year living with cancer I have witnessed a complete reversal of my cancer. I am currently (March 4, 2011) cancer free (I prefer to think that my cancer is dormant). It was only last week that I stumbled on the work of Dr. Colin Campbell for the first time and recognised the similarities between the do's and don'ts of the predominantly whole food, plant-based diet and the diet guidelines that Dr. Cornelis Moerman drew up almost 100 years ago. I have one wish (actually I have many) to share here: "Wouldn't it be nice if the medical protocols for cancer treatment were expanded to include nutrition and exercise guidelines for the periods prior to, during and after treatment?"

For more information about the diet guidelines I am following you can visit my personal blog (click here). I wish you all the best, Iñaki.
