The Complete Thyroid Book

Type: 
Book
Description: 

This doctor is a leading expert in some of the more difficult thyroid cancers but also has findings in regards to Papillary thyroid cancer. Stating that RAI doses are NOT high enough initially and what this is doing is helping the cancer to become "immune." Thinking of it like someone taking too many antibiotics which ultimately results in higher tolerant diseases.

He argues against the concept that there is a lifetime limit of RAI and has given doses as high as 600-900 for people with lung mets like myself. He says it's important to find someone who will perform I-131 dosimetry which is a method used to find out what the highest dose an individual can tolerate without harming their bone marrow.

He is no longer taking new patients and I'm currently looking into other doctors who believe this same principle.

He is:
Director Thyroid Oncology Program University of Kentucky
Division of Endocrinology & Molecular Medicine
Director of Thyroid Cancer Research Lab

Contact information: 
He answers questions online at yahoo groups.

The Cancer Survivor's Guide: Foods That Help You Fight Back

A lot of the same ideas about food as Anti-Cancer, but with recipes and practical tips for how to incorporate foods into your diet. I thought the practical aspect was an area where Anticancer was lacking, so this makes a good companion to it.

After Breast Cancer: A Common-Sense Guide to Life After Treatment

Type: 
Book
Description: 

The one book I would buy, if I could, for every woman finishing treatment. The author is an oncology social worker and two-time breast cancer survivor. I started it about a month before finishing treatment, and carried it around with me like Linus with his blankie.

No one tells you how difficult it's going to be, emotionally and physically, when you finish active treatment -- this book really helped.
