Husband's bladder cancer
Posted by: Constance
Date: December 18, 2006 5:37 PM

My husband has bladder cancer and is presently taking radiation for a tumor that is in his 8th rib. This has recurred since his surgery which was in April in which he had received a neobladder. I understand that his type of cancer is fast growing and it is in his bones. He is looking for supplements that he can take that could possibly help him. Also, can you recommend a doctor that could help him with some natural therapy. He is going to take chemotherapy in January but his prognosis is not good. He is 63 years old.

The big problem with chemotherapy is the side-effects. They can be so severe that some people discontinue chemo, despite the consequences, as they feel the treatment is worse than the disease. Many doctors have found that giving a large dose of ascorbate (vitamin C), on the order of 50 grams intravenously the day after chemo calms the side effects. Your cancer doctor may or may not be aware of this. It is not taught in training programs unfortunately. You can look on this website for a doctor who may give this kind of therapy by clicking on Find A Doctor above.
