Adam-As I mentioned, Carole hasn't had any scans since she went on icbm, but they are coming up probably in the next 30 days. The last scans (November time frame) showed no evidence of disease/no active cancer cells anywhere, including the liver, where she originally had 4 tumors . That was all due to the effectiveness of gtx. Since starting on icbm her ca-19 has remained in the single digit, low double digit area (4-14). Carole's ca-19 was 38,000 when first diagnosed, and after starting treatment dropped about 90% every time it was measured until hitting and settling in the single digit area. At one time Dr. Fine, who our doc works closely with, was recommending patients take curcumin, about 2000 milligrams per day. We started doing that but Dr. Fine concludeed that in order to be effective one would have to take 6 GRAMS of curcumin per day which would make you sick, so he stopped prescribing it. Carole takes no other supplements. Be positive, have faith. Although everybody is different, Carole is living proof that icbm and gtx are effective. No question that I will be anxious until the next scans are in and show conclusively that the cancer is still being held at bay and not in evidence, but we all live with that anxiety going from test to test and scan to scan. Fortunately I have a wife who is an absolute inspiration in how she handles everything associated with this awful disease, and for that I consider myself truly blessed.
