The Avastin molecule attacks VEGF molecules. We attenuate VEGF by other means.
So far my wife has not been forced off her immunochemo by her surgery or dental work. If she were to temporarily stop the UFT (oral 5FU derivative), she would still be doing cimetidine (anti-VEGF) and IV vitamin C (histamine neutralization where histamine levels mediate VEGF generation). Basically as much of the LEF protocols plus IV vitamin C and MK-4 as she can safely get away with (lots, with some supplement suspensions).
In fact for her last surgery, her cimetidine intake doubled for the day. Her IV vitamin C may double or triple to fight infections, cancer and rebuild tissue, after surgery or dental work. I partly rate our execution efficiency by how soon after an invasive procedure that she can get the IV vitamin C infusion. With CA19-9 serum values over 10-20, doing nothing looks risky to dangerous to me although the CA19-9 cutoff is typicaly 34 - 40, depending on lab.
