Subject: [cancercure] Oncologist's plan backfires
Hopefully some of you can appreciate this. The oncologist wanted me to go see the thoracic surgeon about having the upper lobe of my lung hacked out in the hopes that he could convince me to do so. In speaking with the surgeon he told me if I was not going to go for FULL BRAIN RADIATION that I may as well not have the surgery and even if they did the surgery it was not a cure. The surgeon says "you have metatastic disease" and even with radiation & surgery you will not live more than 5 years. He stated if you do not have the lung tumor removed that it will continue to grow. I asked if he knew that for a fact and he said NO. He said after they did the lung surgery they would want to follow it up with radiation & aggressive chemo but I would still not make it past 5 years.
Now I have been waiting for one of these conventional doctors to pass a death sentence on me and here we have it. Do nothing or do the cut burn & poison and either way you will be dead by 5 years. I told him I was not one of the statistics and their is always god & spontaneous remission. Plus his statistics were not treating cancer the same way I am. I am actually grateful for his honest opinion since I have been praying for help on which path was best for me to follow. Having a deceased sister of lung cancer & a surviving sister, I have had some inner turmoil about what to do. This conversation revealed to me the tactic the oncologist who has said no chemo, would use if I did submit to surgery. I am now more than ever, committed to heal naturally, the way god intended. We are not statistics and with god's grace we can heal.
When I left the doctors office I thanked god for answering my prayer and showing me how to live past the 5 year path of destruction conventional medicine had planned for me. I also thank god for every one of you and your companionship on this journey. As Spock would say Live Long & Prosper :-) I'm not a trekie but I like that line.
