In the long run (just my opinion) all the chemos work pretty crapy unless you are one of the 'able to be cured pc's'. Most are not. Those are the rotten stats as we all know. My loved one is gone and I wonder if the chemo was worth all the pain and suffering and side effects or just do it like Rudy and take one's chances au natural. Would like a do over to compare, but not possible. I think all the chemos are poison and they take a big toll. A few go for a few years but I am not convinced 2 will turn into 3 and 3 will turn into 4 and so on. I hope they do, but I am not convinced. What's the next best thing? Just a breakthrough. Now some have critized the Virulizin and other things. My theory is that sooner or later something has to make a dent in this thing. I would go check out the Hershey study. OGF or something. You can do a search. The big thing is that it is non toxic so what harm is it. Sometimes hope is better than chemo. I am not convinced that poison kept my loved one alive the whole time. Perhaps it did. I always felt when they died something would come up...maybe it has...maybe it is your turn. I would try the new non toxic stuff. What have you got to lose? The chemo might kill some of the tumor cells but it also kills the patient. I hope for the breakthrough to be in time for all here. I hope you find a decision that you can live with. I mean that literaly.
