Yesterday:

Last Wednesday I went in for an MRI. Wednesday afternoon I had a call from my doctor office that I missed. I had to wait until Monday before I could return the call because of the Thanksgiving break. I worked, the rest of the world didn’t.

Monday morning I call, thinking they were going to tell me I needed to fill out more paperwork, or my insurance was not covering things, or fingers crossed that the cancer is even smaller yet.

Instead the call was to tell me that they found another “questionable spot” same breast but different area. I have to go in for another biopsy “just to be sure” The news totally threw me for a loop. I was not prepared for this. I DO NOT WANT TO DO ANOTHER BIOPSY. They are painful, scary and uncomfortable and take a long time to heal from. I of course agreed to another, because what else do you do? Now I wait for another appointment, another needle, more mammograms.

My mother, who had breast cancer 3 years ago suggested I read Susan Sommers book. She said it has a lot of good information in it. So I was in town and bought Knockout. Doctors curing cancer. CURING. I do not know if I should be reading the book because it questions EVERYTHING that we do to treat cancer in today’s world. It has filled my head with doubts. Before I was comfortable with my plan of action. Get in, get it out, get it done. Now with this new spot (that I have no idea what it is yet I’ve already mentally accepted it is as more cancer) I am doubting all my choices, thoughts and procedures.

Anyone out there that has tried alternative treatments? I would never be able to afford them like a famous rich actress like Suzzane Somers. I obviously am not bold enough to ask for alternatives (hence the fact that I am giving into another biopsy that I do not want) But I want to know. What has your experience been?

I do not have a lot of followers on this blog but the few I do if they would share this with others maybe someone will be able to answer some of my doubts. I don’t know. Just a thought.

I am pretty confident I will be starting my period next week. Actually company Christmas party is Saturday so odds are I will start during that! So the news may have made me actually cry and freak out and over analyze because hormones are, well dumb.

Thanks for letting me share. And vent. And release. This helps.

    If you want me to share this, I will. But you need to tell the doctors to stop screwing around and get this taken care of! And I’ll tell you why I say this. I got a phone call this past Sunday night saying my brother had died from end-stage lung cancer. He never saw it coming. By the time he got to the doctor, it was too late. He was put on hospice and died a few days later. He waited too long and couldn’t be saved and I never got the chance to say goodbye. Tell the doctors to quit screwing around and just get this cancer removed from your body. Please! Yes, you owe it to everyone who loves you to stay healthy and to be around for a long, long time. (Sorry, hope that didn’t seem harsh as I certainly didn’t mean it to be. I don’t want to seem insensitive, because you know I’m not. I’m just mad as hell.)

    I am so sorry to hear about your brother! I hope you find a way to find some peace about not being able to say goodbye. That can be hard.
    I totally agree about getting it out. I really don’t want the biopsy. My thoughts are just cut the whole thing off and start from new/fresh.
    You can share if you want. I am curious if anyone has tried alternative treatments.

    I hardly know what to say. I can only imagine how scared and worried you must be right now. My prayers to you that you have the strength and grace to do what needs to be done. I am reblogging this post because I believe that as a community there is power in information. Someone might know something.

        It’s really the very least that I can do. It’s natural to have moments of doubt, but please just put your trust in God. Bless you.

    Your body needs to be alkalined. Read up on it. In our household we drink organic apple cider vinegar with apple juice or with alkalined water. My husband bought the machine a few yrs ago. At this time you should eliminate sugar altogether from your diet. Cancer cells loves sugar. God bless you and stay positive.

    FYI- I have a post on how to make alkaline water. It’s under health and wellness in the category section.

    I’ve been there with the concern about a biopsy (I was lucky it was negative). I have also lost friends to breast cancer and stood by others as they went through the treatments and recovery. While I don’t have cancer (praise God) I do know about a new hope for treatment.

    I suffer from fibromyalgia and Sjogren’s Syndrome and started taking LDN (low dose naltrexone) in October as an alternative treatment. I am seeing great improvement in my pain levels, mood, and energy. I have the best hope I’ve had in a long time of a better quality life thanks to LDN. While naltrexone itself is not a new drug, it’s traditional use has been in doses of 50mg and up to treat alcohol and drug addiction. But in lower doses (0.5mg to 4.5mg) it is being used to treat a whole host of illnesses. Results are being seen with LDN in treating multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, and a host of other autoimmune illnesses, as well as cancer.

    LDN is both cheap and non-toxic with very minimal side effects, most of which are only brief. I urge you to go to http://www.ldnresearchtrust.org and/or http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.org for more information. You can also find videos and testimonials on YouTube – just search for ldn cancer for testimonials – including a long interview with Dr. Bihari, the man who discovered the use of low dose naltrexone for treating autoimmune illnesses.

    There are some support groups on Facebook and Yahoo, but I would discourage you from going on those sites until you have investigated it’s use to your satisfaction, and then only to see what experiences others have had with LDN. Don’t let any negative comments stop you from trying it if you are interested. Some have waited out of fear because of medication sensitivies, but with LDN that is truly not a concern. I have multiple allergies and sensitivities to medications but have no trouble with LDN.

    Prayers and blessings always.

    I am truly sorry to hear about your cancer. There are no words.
    I do want to share that I have met quite a few ladies that have healed their cancer through holistic cleanses. This, of course, requires you to see a naturopathic doctor to assist in what the cleanses are.

    I will repost and keep you in prayer. Abundant blessings for healing, Emma

    Suzanne is a good place to start. Also look up Dr. Day at http://drday.com. This is a female physician that cured her own cancer naturally and inexpensively and remains healthy to this day.

    I wish you the best.

    My understanding is that sugar feeds cancer (like it feeds fungus.) I would eliminate all sugars AND GRAINS from your diet immediately! Maybe have some whole fruit, but not much!
