I wish it was something other than a cancer I had to talk about.
My son 27, was complaining of "pain" in his shoulder and back about August 2011. For a young man, who works hard, I suggested to get a massage to work out the pain. It then became numbing and tingling, no strength in his hand.
Saw him in September, and he "held" his arm, and told me he was in constant pain. I tried to work out some muscle tension, and he couldn't take that pressure. (as a licensed massage therapist, I have worked plenty of numbing and tingling impingments)
Within two weeks of seeing him, a node began to form in his neck, and two weeks later, this lump had grown to the size of a lemon. Needless to say, the pain was continuing in his arm.
So, a week later he is diagnosed with cancer....two days later he is diagnosed with sarcoma. A week later (a week from the first diagnosis) he is told he has spindle cell.
He has gone through the first chemo treatment. Chemo, radiation, then surgery.
And will go through the second round this weekend.
Anyone with any insight on a 5 day aggressive chemo drip?
I have been doing research, and suggested to him for his recover to take B-17, Vit D, and lots of real foods. He is not much on RAW, and just changing his diet from processed foods to real foods is a slow transition.
His treatment is in Seattle at the Seattle Cancer Care Center....and UW Med Center.
Any suggestions on post chemo?
Just trying to help my son. I am helpless, since this Mommy can't fix this boo boo.
