One thing I forgot to mention in the previous post: We have had an opportunity to work with a famous herbalist, Jonathan Treasure out of California. He's had experience complimenting conventional cancer treatment (particularly my type of cancer) by integrating herbs that allow medications to have greater effectiveness. Jonathan suggested I might do well with another chemo medicine.
I ran that new medicine (Erbitux) by my oncologist, who likes the idea. So, we've postponed the G-tube surgery and scheduled a meeting with the doctor to discuss altering the medical plan. Yes, we're still going to treat cancer with conventional care in the immediate future. It just might be with a different drug.
