More hospital

Joan has had to be re-admitted to hospital for an infusion of electrolytes and X Rays of her chest and bowel. It is thought that she has a bowel obstruction. She is fasting until tomorrow morning before having the X Rays. The decision was made by the Silver Chain nurse who listened to her bowel gurgling to find that above a certain position there was movement, but down lower no movement or noises. We will know tomorrow. The Oncologist had previously told us that the bowel tumour was probably restricting the bowel, but to insert a stent was not practical as the bowel is constantly moving to move food 'down the line'.

  5. i was diagnosed of TNBC 6 years ago and i was terrified because the oncologist told me that it is the most aggresive form of cancer and also that there is no cure. I almost gave up but i had to try series of solution like chemotherapy and which i did twice and the turmor were still there, this even made it all worse and i cried all night. I was able to meet doctor kennedy whom used his medicine to cure me in just a few months and i went back for diagnosis and i was clean and tested negative. To those who plan on giving up don't because there is a cure i believe the medicine will work for you too if you try. Contact him directly on drkennedy118@gmail.com i am positive he can help you.

    In Dec. of 2013 I was diagnosed with terminal
    cancer at the age of 39. The doctors could give
    me no hope. I did have chemo and radiation, the
    doctors thought that could prolong my life for a
    little while. In March of 2014 I had surgery, thats
    when they found that the cancer had spread to
    my lymp nodes in my right hip area and couldn't
    get it all with the surgery. Now it looked like 3-6
    months is all I would live. It was a very
    aggressive form of colorectal cancer. But WhenI came across doctor Kumar from India he cured my terminal cancer with herbs I'm living very healthy today you too can be save or someone else contact the cancer and kidney doctor via email: DR.KUMARDAVID42@GMAIL.COM
