Yea, I can see why people that are claustrophobic panic in those tubes.  Nothing better to do then sleep and sleep can be a healer so why not.  Like Kenny said we'll be waiting for the results.

Glad they are getting right into the process of getting you better.  I don't mind confined spaces either, so the PET scan wouldn't bother me, but I hope I don't need one just the same.  Isn't it a lot like a CT scan?  I had 2 of those 2 weeks ago, but the confined space wasn't very deep.

I've had plenty of PET scans. They never found the critter in me tho!  Guess I didn't understand WHAT that meant?  The injection and having to wait in dark room was kinda nice. Went so much, got to know the girls there!

I haven't been on much the last couple days, been sleeping or napping more off and on between running around getting tests done. We are fully into our new diet plan, my wife decided that the whole family needed to change their eating habits and thought it wouldn't be fair to me to eat everything I love and can't have. I spent 3 hrs. today in the grocery store today and I have to say that it was really unbelievable how little food we eat everyday has no sugar in it. Another thing is finding all natural, organic foods. The prices are outrageous when they print organic on it. The biggest thing I am finding hard to do without is my "Sweet Tea". As some of you know I live on sweet tea, so going to a green or white tea from a great iced tea is the hardest part. I am doing really good with giving up meat, but it's not really bothering much and I can eat several kinds of beans which I enjoy. GOD put all these great foods for us to eat here on this earth, we just need to get back to what we know is healthy foods.

 

 

Glad they are getting right into the process of getting you better.  Isn't it a lot like a CT scan?  I had 2 of those 2 weeks ago, but the confined space wasn't very deep.

 

Daniel, They are very similar except you are in the tube for about 20 minutes and the tube is over 4' long ans very tight. If I relaxed to much with my hands over my head, my elbows would rub on the side of the tube.

Several years ago we had an annual revival at the little country church I attend.  Regular weekly attendance is about 40.   It was a husband/wife team and they were good!  They could really light the fire in people.  They had pictures of themselves doing revivals all over the country for years and years.  From the old pictures, the wife was rather heavyset but at that time she was a tiny thing.  Upon looking at the pictures one parishioner asked is that really you?  She admitted that she used to be very heavy and that in the Bible there are clues as to what we are supposed to eat.  

If fact they had a book about what to eat and it was for sale!  :smilewink:   

The book was pretty thick and rather expensive [$25 I think] but I thought we could really get some good out of this information.

I actually read over half of the book before I gave up on it and I can sum the entire book up in 6 words:

 

Eat raw nuts, grasshoppers and crickets!

 

Theres a sucker born every minute and I weigh 285 pounds.........

:(   :wallbanging:

 

The MRS. and I will continue to pray for you Brian.  I'm a stage 3 cancer survivor myself.

Not to turn this into some kind of crazy thread, but I am considering holding off on Chemo/Radiation for 60 days to see how effective the Cancer healing diet does. I would appreciate your thoughts on this as I have been doing a lot of research and yes you can find information to support anything anymore on the net. The Chemo is very hard on the rest of the body including the immune system. I have read several story from cancer survivors that have done it with feeding the body a very healthy, raw fruit and vegetable diet. 

 

So please feel free to comment on your thoughts and beliefs. GOD will bring me thru this, that I know. I just have to figure out the right way to go about it.

Delays are worst thing to do in my  opinion!  Sorry, can't believe in the "natural" healing process and think modern health procedures are the best bet once someone Has a problem. Diet to help prevent problems, Maybe?  To Heal, not a believer!  You have to get the "demon" cells out of your body, they won't leave by themselves.

Brian...

I can offer no sound advice. I think it would all be a matter of opinion. Each and every one of us has the God given ability to make our own decisions and do what we think is right. I will always hope the best for you, and continue sending prayers for your healing, in whatever decision you make.

That's a tough call Brian. Everybody's body is different and has different requirements. My sister-in-law did the natural thing in tandem with some treatments. The biggest thing she did was to change the water she was drinking. She's been cancer free now for many years. Natural healing a are very good but I'm not sure they can do everything. Most folks just start it too late. I believe they can bring you along faster and possibly reduce the number of treatments.y advice would be to change the diet (really we all should ahead of a diagnosis), start the treatments and give it to God and let him take it from there.

I have to agree with both these guys on the treatment. That is a decision you have to make and I think your Dr. will be the best person to talk this over with (along with the family). I'll still be here offering support and prayers for you no matter what you decide.

Brian, since you asked, I will give you my opinion.
I have watched a close friends wife beat this disease once, then have it return 12 years later in a different form. By doing the treatments she is still here 5 years later. Unfortunately, she is no longer able to take the treatments and is succumbing to the disease.

My first advise is to follow your doctor's plan of attack (If you trust your doctor) and that 85% is really good odds.
If you have any reservations in your doctor, go to the cancer center in Houston for a second opinion. You are quite close to the Worlds leading research center on beating this terrible disease.

I will say this, if you are thinking about postponing chemo, I would strenuously advise moving forward with a different medical treatment as well as the diet. There are non chemo based approaches out now and specialists and researchers that are using them.

Bottom line, your call. I would say one of the most important things is being 100% comfortable with your doctor, and if you aren't... Find a different one quickly. MD, DO, DVM, or Witch, just get a Doctor you feel you can put your life in their hands and then move forward. While you want to make sure it's the right move, delays do nothing IMHO but give the cancer more time to grow and spread.
