My experience with Hallwang and other German therapies has been more brutal than most, but I assume that is due to my high tumour burden. I have been documenting everything on my blog for anyone interested: mcrc4.com
I stopped systemic chemo 6 weeks ago now. I was classed as having stable disease, while on chemo, but that is a deceptive term. A stable disease is anything with less than 25% growth, so although I was officially 'stable' most of my tumours still grew. To continue down the chemo path, for me at least , I knew was a dead end.
Again one of my oncolgists told me that should I stop chemo, I would have maybe 2 months. Well its been 6 weeks now and I am still in relatively good health (my oncologist will be sooo disappointed), so I am hoping that the german therapies are doing something positive. I'll know for sure next month when I get my next MRI.
I still believe that focusing on the immune system and immunotherapies is the way to go.
