Today I felt that I had to shout out how I feel, but probably I would get arrested for scandal, lol, so I am posting here. About a month and a half ago, at his usual appointment for CT Scan, we were told that my husband has metastasis in his brain, that evil tumor had not only reoccured in his paranasal sinus but also found it's way into the brain. At that moment, my hub was sleeping almost 18 hours a day, eating one meal a day which was just soup with nothing else, nothing solid and was disoriented most of time, forgetful, no coordination with slurred speech could barely understand what he was saying.
Guess you all are wondering how come I have good news.... Well hub said he don't want any treatment as the last time he had fallen twice, couldn't balance, couldn't keep his blood pressure or sugar level stable, and at the clinic they didn't monitoring this as closely as should have and this cause him to fall twice, once he lost consciousness for almost an hour and had to be given meds so as not to go into coma, that fall required 6 stitches to the back of his head. He said no treatment.
The ENT specialist, since we don't have any oncologist here, asked him how did he feel about trying alternative medicine since he don't want to take any chemotherapy and radiation. He said that he would try since he has nothing to lose. Two days later he started on tea made from Polypodium aureum (rabbit foot fern), twice a day. Now a month and a half later we are happy.
Hub is now up for more than 10 hours a day, how wonderful, appetite has improve that now he is eating even beef meat, very little of course, normally it is chicken, solid food what an improvement, his coordination is much better that i trust to leave him alone cause I know he won't fall when walking.
His body temperature has stabilized and he doesn't have that hot and cold flashes as before, hi speech improved and I can understand 90% of what he says, he is happy and that makes me happy. I know some people think that alternative medicine is a mistake but it is working for us, that is all I can say.
The good news I have my husband back, I don't know how long he will be with me, as no one knows even with western medicine but I have him with me and very active that is what counts, we can go out again, visit places and continue to store good memories. Just wanted to share some good news
