Breast Cancer: From Despair to Hope in Five Days

Acknowledgment:  Permission to use this video clip without having to close the patient’s face is granted by the family.

 

The gist of our conversation:

1.  Breast lump, ten years ago and she did nothing about it.

She discovered a lump in her breast more than   ten years ago but did nothing about it. The lump grew bigger. In 2008, she went to Kuching, Malaysia for a full-body check up. At that time she did not experience any serious discomfort. However, the check up revealed a stage 4 breast cancer since it had probably spread to her bones.

2.  Trips to China to find the cure.

The doctor in Kuching suggested chemotherapy. She refused. The family decided to bring her to China for medical treatment. She received treatments such as chemotherapy, cryoablation and radioactive seeding in the Chinese hospital.

3.  A Minor Fall

In January 2011, she had a minor fall. This cause one of her legs to become swollen. But even before the fall, she always had pains in her legs. She consulted a doctor in Kuching about this problem and was told that nothing was wrong with her leg but she probably had cancer in her colon.

4.  Leg Operation

Since February 2011, she was not unable to walk and remained immobilized at home. One of her leg was in pain and the other was swollen. She was unable to place her feet on the ground and stand up because of pains. She went to Jakarta for further consultation.  Subsequently she underwent a surgery intervention for both of her legs. Two months after the surgery she was able to walk. There were no more pains in the foot when she stepped on the ground. But the pains in the lower parts of her legs persisted.

 5.  Hospitalization – September 2011

In late September 2011, she had pains in her abdomen and was unable to walk again. She had to be hospitalized. The oncologist suggested a PET scan to find out what was wrong with her. The family declined.  By this time she was taking a variety of medications prescribed by the oncologist, bone specialist and neurologist.

6.  CA Care Penang – 9 October 2011

She was wheel chair bound. She had to be carried up into the airplane. She was unable to stand up by herself.  She was unable to sleep and had pains in her legs throughout the day and night.  After listening to her story that 9 October night, we could only say this to her family, I really don’t know what I can do to help you. But I shall try my best. It was indeed a hopeless and helpless case.

After five days on the e-Therapy and herbs, her conditions improved.  The pains in her legs were almost gone. She was able to sleep and above all she was able to stand up by herself with minimal help.

Update:

On 26 October 2011, her daughter-in-law called to say that patient (now at home in Jakarta) is able to walk by herself with the help of a walking stick. On the day when she returned home, she was able to slowly walk into the airplane – no need to be carried into the plane like the week before.

Lung Cancer Pain: Severe chest pain and numbness, Unable to Sleep

Bee (H339) was a 71-year-old female. Sometime in mid-February 2010, she had shortness of breath. Detail examination for about a month at a university hospital did not yield any result. Frustrated the family brought her to another university hospital in Kuala Lumpur. She had fluid in her lungs and this was tapped out. A biopsy on 31 March 2010 confirmed primary carcinoma of the lung. The doctor suggested chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The family declined further medical treatment.

Hopeless and helpless, they sought alternative treatments. Her daughter said: We sought the help of 16 medical and traditional practitioners. After all these, we went into the internet and found CA Care.

Bee and her family came to see us on 16 June 2010. She presented with severe pains in the rib area. She was unable to lie down and sleep. For the past five months she was unable to sleep all night due to pains. Just one treatment with the e-Therapy and herbs, Bee was able to sleep and the pains almost disappeared.

My mother is doing generally quite good since coming back from Penang. Her appetite is quite ok.  Not really good but is able to eat.  Bowel movements also ok – about once or twice a day.  No diarrhea.  Stool is black in color. She has less coughing and less phlegm now.  The phlegm is white color and only in the morning.  No phlegm at night.  There is a slight pain in the upper stomach whenever she coughs. Generally has no problem sleeping except the need to wake up if there are coughing.

Sometimes she has a little pain at the back below the shoulder.  No more tightness in the chest.  Breathing is normal. Occasionally she has stomach wind and feels nauseous.  Is this normal?  Does it caused by herbal which is taken before meal? She felt very tired after going through 2 days of e-Therapy.  Is this normal?  She said she felt better without the therapy. Please advice.

Overall her condition is getting better.  Less coughing, less phlegm, more energetic, and look more lively. The problem is she still has pain in the rib area early in the morning.  Around 4 a.m. to 5 a.m.  Another thing is she can’t walk far.  Walking just about 50 meters make her exhausted.  Is this normal?

Basically she is getting better.  Except occasionally stomach winds and pain in the shoulder and tightness in the rib area.

Email on 9 December 2010

For your information, our mother passed away peacefully without pain on 6th of December 2010.  Since she was confirmed as lung cancer patient till the last day of her life, she was able to manage the pain very well.  Even Dr. F was shocked at how she managed to go on without pain killer.  She did not even have problem with coughing.  We would like to express our deepest gratitude to you for giving her the “quality of life”.  She was able to talk and smile happily till the last day of her life.

From all of us, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
