Hi, I just had a radical hysterectomy and now need to decide on the next course of action. My latest CAE showed 0.5 and my CA-125 showed 19. However, it is still recommend that the “standard of treatment” is 6rounds of Chemo. Taxol and Carbo? I was diagnosed with Stage3 Ovarian Cancer-clear Cell

I would like a second opinion. Do anyone know medicine doctors who also practice natural treatment or utilize more than one “standard of treatment method”?

Thanks

    Hi, jinaki

    This board is pretty quiet and so sometimes it’s hard to get a reply to a post. I’m a visitor from the Uterine board. I was diagnosed in 2020 with Stage II Fallopian tube cancer with secondary peritoneal.

    I don’t know much about clear cell, or what particular drugs are used to treat it, but it seems that the 6 infusions of taxol and carboplatin combo is very standard for GYN cancers. I know I’d have done just about anything to avoid chemo. I asked my doctor……”You got it all, so can’t we just wait a few months and do a CT and then do chemo if it’s necessary?” He said, “No. In 6 months you’ll be in here with every symptom you can name. You’re fixable. This is your best chance for that to happen.”

    The more I read…the more research articles I was able to get through…..I was convinced he was right. I hated every minute of chemo and desperately wish none of this had happened to me, but it’s been 2 1/2 years since my diagnosis and I’m still here, with no recurrences.

    Maybe you can find someone who can/will incorporate natural remedies into your treatment plan, but ….and it’s just my opinion….your best chance for recovery and long-term survival is to have chemo.

    I wish you the best.

    😎, A

    What you're looking for is an oncology naturopath. I highly recommend this approach. I was diagnosed with stage 3c high grade ovarian cancer in 2009. The alternative doctors I talked to recommended a combination of conventional and integrative treatment. I did everything I could find. Once I was NED in 2010, my oncology naturopath worked with me for a few years, correcting the imbalances in my body that were promoting cancer. I continue to live an anti-cancer lifestyle and eat an anti-cancer diet and so far, so good.

    [Content removed by CSN Support Team] I had stage IV which had spread all over . I was introduced to Dr Donato and by the grace of with Chemo, RGCC blood analysis and holistic treatment, protocol and gerson therapy . CA125 is 5 . Kidneys and liver are working better than before. I will highly recommend him.

    I had debulking surgery and my CA 125 is now 12 (prior to chemo), I also questioned at my first chemo session as to why I needed it. It seems in order to get those microscopic cells it's the only way sadly :( Nutrition of course is very important, especially helpful in getting through chemo and keeping up blood levels. I am trying to make everything I eat count well (extra protein, vitamin K, vitamin C) and take vitamins B6 and B 12 to help limit neuropathy.
