Hi. Just joined. I have aggressive invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the nose/sinus. I've had 6 surgeries/reconstruction and deconstruction/33 radiation treatments. The cancer came back or was missed 3 times. I've lost my right nose and part of cheekbone/part of cheek all the way back to the sinus cavity. Now have to be left unreconstructed for at least 2 yrs. to make sure no cancer returns before they will try to reconstruct again.
Since I have maxed out any further radiation and have opted to not have any more of my face removed; and chemo, they tell me, is ineffective for scc; I am left looking into diet/alternative treatments or vitamins/supplements/green drinks,etc.
Does anyone have any experience with cancer and using anti-cancer special diets/vitamins/supplements,etc to boost ones' immune system to fight the cancer from returning?
Thanks so much...am trying to do everything I can to make sure the cancer stays away!
