I'm sorry to hear about your Mom its a difficult journey for all involved.
Both my Mom and Dad have been fighting cancer the past three years. Dad had NSCLC (lung cancer) 2x now and as of June was cancer free with chemo/radiation/cyber knife and our miracle DCA!!!
Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2007 with mets to her lymph nodes. She then had a mastectomy on the left side and 9 lymph nodes removed followed by chemo and radiation. Needless to say, a year and a nine months later, Dec. 2008 her tumor marker was at a 26 as of June it spiked to a 134. She had mets to her bones, lymph nodes, skin, lung, and adreanal.... Before the diagnosis based off of the PET scan we were seeing small tumors on her head, neck, back and arm. We had a dematologist look at these and biopsied which turned out to be metastatic breast cancer. Because we were concerned with the lumps and bumps Dad and I began her on the DCA before the Dermatologist and Oncologist had given us the bleak diagnosis.
Following two chemo sessions Mom ended up in the hospital for 5 days with pnemonia. Interestingly enough, the only blood level that was way off with the exception of her red and white counts (low due to chemo) there was a count which determines cell die off (norm is 0-400) hers was at a 1900. I'm not a doctor but I think we bombarded the cancer with the DCA which may have been part of the reason she ended up in the hospital!??? Tumor lysis syndrome maybe!??
Her tumor marker began at a 134 in June, during her hospital stay at the end of June it had dropped to a 117, then to a 102 and as of today it was at a 74!!!! Remarkable! the doctor called it!! Now, we've seen the same Onchologist for both Mom and Dad but when I brought up DCA we literally got into a shouting match in the office so, this time around I never mentioned the DCA but I believe he knows in the back of his mind that its not just the chemo
Another testimonial is that while in the hospital Moms tumors in her stomach had disapeared on the CT scan and the tumor on her head, arm and one on her back are gone!!! the one on her neck and a larger one on her back are slowly decreasing!!! remarkable indeed!
Hope, I am wishing your Mom, you and your family well and I hope DCA will do the same for your Mom. I hope this helps and if I can be of any help please let me know. We're all in this fight together!!
P.S. Where are you from? I'm in the U.S.
