Doctor Says I Have Tumor- Chemo Only Answer (final update)

Hello Friends,

I am writing a final update because I know that Dean would want me to. You were all kind enough to offer suggestions and prayers in September and we meant to respond with thanks, but Dean had gotten worse and voluntarily went to the hospital a few days later. He was diagnosed with severe hypercalcemia, which is a complication of the late stages of cancer. He was treated and released when his blood calcium levels were brought back to normal. He was given hospice care at that point. In a week the levels went back up again and he was readmitted ten days later. This time the levels went down, but not to normal. His health continued to deteriorate and he passed on October 19.

By the time Dean was diagnosed in June, it was already way too late for minerals, diet, alternative medicine, or even the oil he had such faith in. His blood calcium levels were already rising in July. That was the reason he was vomiting, losing his appetite and energy. We thought the vomiting was a reaction to the oil, but he was in fact dying.

I cry daily and am so angry. The cancer didn’t suddenly appear in June when Dean was diagnosed. He’d been going to follow-up visits to his head and neck oncology surgeon, who happens to be the chief surgeon of a prestigious teaching hospital in NYC. He’d had a pinhole which discharged for more than six months before it opened up into a hole, and his doctors just said it was from the side effects of radiation and to cover it with gauze. We trusted them. And though we had no idea that this pinhole could suddenly open up, rapidly enlarge, that the arteries inside the hole could begin to deteriorate and bleed so that he’d need a blood transfusion, or that a huge mass of a tumor could develop around it; I’m sure that this world renowned surgeon who’s written countless books and articles, and has an entourage of interns following him all day, had some idea months before it happened.

The head and neck surgeon had told Dean two years before that if the cancer came back, he wouldn’t be able to help him. It can’t be proven, but I believe that since there was nothing he could do, he didn’t feel he needed to bother to tell us of the possibility or send Dean for tests to see if the cancer had spread. The surgeon may not have been able to help Dean and Dean certainly couldn’t have any more radiation, but maybe alternative medicine or the oil could have helped him if started six months earlier, before he was in the end stages of cancer. He didn’t give us a chance!

I’m sorry to to share such a horrible event. I’m still debating as to whether or not to post this.......I believe Dean would want you to know. He loved this site and valued everything that was shared and posted here. Peace to all of you. I hope the new year finds you all healthy and happy.

Sincerely, Susan

Happened to be reading

about K2 lately. It seems to be very important, especially when you are taking calcium and D. As for the calcium in Dean's blood, it was due to the progression of his cancer. It was the tumor, or perhaps it had spread to his bones....wish it had been as simple as giving him vitamins. We have to take charge of our health before we get sick.

Thanks Susan

I'm sure I'm not the first to ask but...Do you need anything from us?

Do you have family with you?

You're so kind to ask!

Thank you. No. You've all given me more than I expected. Dean and I have two daughters and a grandson. They are all home with me. I have a good job and supportive family and friends. Not to be melodramatic, but you know the one thing I am missing.......

So glad to hear you have your children and grandchild with

you...but I agree, no one can take the place of another. We just make new spaces in our hearts for new friends.....

I wish I would have gotten to know punkskaguy.

I love punk and ska and Ron Paul. I bet we could have been good friends. This is such a sad story.

It makes us question what we should be doing in regards to cancer. We see that there are ways to avoid or treat this disease. We need to make sure that we are discussing these issues frequently as part of our non-political actions.

Yes, you would have.

He was funny and certainly unique. He brought music into everyone's lives. He made cds for the nurses at the hospital and always bought extra tickets for his friends and nephews. Even after he was diagnosed in June, he bought six tickets to see the Skatalites on a concert cruise. He wasn't well, but we went and I was glad we did. He was passionate about RP, 9/11 Truth and We are Change. He woke up after one of his surgeries with tubes coming out of his neck and nostrils, barely able to speak, but still carrying on about 9/11 with the recovery nurse. He'd said that he wanted a white casket with RP rEVOLution painted on. He was probably joking, but as a tribute to him and his passions, we put together a basket of stickers and his family and friends each put a a RP, music, or political sticker on his casket. It was Standing Room Only at his service with well over two-hundred people in attendance......He wasn't perfect as he did have some serious issues (we all have them), but he was special. I bet you would have, too!

Passionate for the r3VOLution until the very last moment!

So fortunate for him to have you - he called you Boss and my Doc in his notes to us - and the entire family & friends to honor him for what he was & is at his service. THAT is how I, too, wish to live until the last breath. . .

How funny...

I'm really not all that bossy.....
This is true. It didn't matter what was going on with him, he was constantly spreading truth and 3VOL!

My prayers are with you and your family

May the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.

Thank you!

Thank you all....sincerely.

Thank You

Many of us are glad you had the strength to post this final update because we do care about Dean. May the strength you have shown here inspire us and we in turn can be your support with our prayers.

Thank you for your support and prayers.

I wasn't sure that I should post. I didn't mean for it to be about me. It was what I believe Dean would have wanted, as he did value this forum and the RP supporters and has asked me to post on his behalf in the past. I hope now that maybe someone will benefit from all the information and advice given to us from this and previous posts about Dean's condition.

My hart cries with you!

May God bless you and give you peace!

Thank you

Peace to you too.

Too bad he never saw the right kind of doctor (a naturopathic

doctor) an N.D. not an M.D. who could have helped him.

An experienced N.D. looks for and finds the underlying CAUSES of a person's cancer. Then by removing the causes (generally refined; wheat; sugar; dairy and meat) and doing hardcore detox, the cancer can no longer survive since the body's unhealthy acidic condition is now alkaline.

Taking vitamins along with continuing eating the same old things that caused the cancer to get there in the first place does nothing.I know this sounds harsh after a loss like this. Sorry to say it but it is the truth.

Also all cancers grow for a long time before anyone gets a diagnosis. 20 years isn't uncommon.

People need to learn that allopathic medical doctors are NOT trained in restoring health in medical school. Rather they are trained to help people live with their disease. It is the Naturopaths that go to medical school and are trained in health and helping people get rid of their "incurable (by the medical establishment)" disease.

Never knew naturopathic

doctors existed. I wish Dean had posted about his illness in 2009 when it began. We tried to keep him alkaline, changed his diet, and and added vitamins, but it was already late in the game. Thank you though, maybe someone else will benefit from this.

thank you for the update Susan

The best to you.

thedoctorisin

Thank you.

I wish it every day.

we all know the politians don't work for us

could it be the same of the medical folks?

http://www.torstenengelbrecht.com/en/download/virus-mania-ab...

In short we have been schooled that germs and viruses come from the outside and "infect" us. Could it be that our body cells produce them to clean up the body? We panic and seek the help of doctors and even though they are billed as the best of the best we still lose our life.

I agree with you Susan that cancer is everywhere and younger and younger are affected. I have lost 2 sisters in law and many others to it and other modern day maladies like diabetes, ALS. And many endure everyday diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, infertility, etc. Hint: they are not what we have been told.

In memory of Dean and all the others. There is another story few know about. There are too few servants (RP is one) and there is a few in the medical world and please read the above article.

Like our economy it is best to make the changes to our health before there is a crisis.

What about the Hippocratic Oath?

I guess it means nothing when profits need to be maximized.
What a shame that it's come to where we can't believe anything we are told....
not by the medical field and even more so, not by our government.

Once there is a medical crisis we do panic and we were brought up to trust the medical
field. The concept of medical folks not working for us is fairly new, I think. But one
that we must be aware of. We need to take charge of our own health and yes, once you are already
sick, it could be too late.

My condolences. I'm dealing

My condolences. I'm dealing with something similar in my family so I understand. I hope the best for you.

I'm so sorry!

I hope the best for YOU!
