I saw my doctor yesterday. My CT and X ray scans were clear so I've gone 5 years NED. I asked him if I was cured. He said as far as he was concerned I was. He said he couldn't find any data to support that because so few stage IV patients go 5 years NED. Does anyone out there know when someone stage iv can be considered cured? To be safe I will have CEA tested every 6 months but no more scans unless my CEA goes up significantly. I feel so happy! I plan to continue with my program. I think I'm addicted to the exercise, the diet is no big deal for me, and the supplements only cost around $50/mo. I may cheat a little bit on the diet to include red meat and ice cream once on a while. For those new to the Board my program was as follows:
1. Exercise 3 hrs/day (walking, yoga, weight lifting, and running)
2. Mediterranian diet ( No red meat, limit sugar, saturated fat. and refined flour. Lots of vegatables, fruit, whole grains green tea, and tumeric)
3. Supplements ( resveratrol, grapeseed extract, fish oil, vitamin D3, Co-Q10, ,aspirin, and a multivitamin)
4. Avoid stress
6. Visualize my anti-bodies attacking cancer cells
Its worked for me it could work for you.
