so far my cea is continuing to rise, alas.
I am keeping the therapy going despite my increasing markers.

I found out the other day it really stimulates your granulocytes, and that these are really important.

goodluck,

hugs,

ps its nice to know we have a few here getting iv c. i have started making my own liposomal vit c at home, its much much cheaper. not sure how effective, but i am still typing.

I can say there is no known harm from it. your body happily will rid itself of any excessive vit C and so it is unlikely to be harmful in any way.

Will be interested to hear of your experience if you choose to try it,

My wife is stage IV, two years from diagnosis. She's had about 369 IV vitamin C infusions, heavy supplementation somewhat like the LEF protocol, and daily maintenance immunochemotherapy of cimetidine, UFT, leucovorin and PSK. Her IV vitamin C was up to daily after surgeries, mostly 60-75 grams of vitamin C per infusion, stepping down from 5x to 4x to 3x to 2x to 1x per week. Doing fine.

I am on glisodin for nutrient support, as a coincidence its claimed to help reduce thickening aterial wall thickness. I hope its helping reverse the damage of my earlier life and to build better health going forward.
