I've been laying low for awhile, managing this second recurrence. I took letrozole (generic Femara) for 5 months while watching CA125 rise steadily - and more rapidly in last couple of months - now near 140.
I've been practicing alternative energy medicine for a couple of years and went to Boston in July for treatments. I am also on a personalized anti-cancer diet recommended by holistic nutritionist there with goal to starve cancer. Also taking supplements - paw paw, black cumin seed, and ellagic to boost immune system.
The diet is kicking my butt though. It is so exclusive of most everything I enjoy except some fruits and poultry. It's kind of depressing and sometimes I have to force myself to eat because I don't really enjoy meals at all. I've lost about 9 pounds in last month. Any suggestions on preparing tasty low carb veggies and/or beans is appreciated.
I get next bloodwork and scan within 2 weeks. Trying to be optimistic that my body will take over job of chasing Chester (UPSC) away before I have to resort to chemo.
Wishing blessings on you all, Mary Ann
