I had cancer tumors in my liver due to metastasis from colorectal

Resolved Question:

I had cancer tumors in my liver due to metastasis from colorectal cancer. 2 surgeries and 2 chemotherapy sections later, 3 years on, and I have been clear of any tumor or any sign of tumor activity.
Check ups are performed at every 3 months.
After the last chemotherapy section, I consulted with a homeopathic doctor who prescribed Carcinocin, which I took at different potencies.
My question is: should I continue taking it as precaution to avoid any possible recurrence?
I would appreciate your assistance.

Regards,

Edwin

Hello
No
This is not how homeopathy works.
You have to follow up with the homeopath.

Carcinosin might be one of two or three main remedies that you need.

This is serious business...make sure your homeopath works with cancer.

I am a cancer doctor

are you getting CEA blood test every 3 months to check for colon cancer recurrence?

did your colon cancer make CEA in your blood stream when you were first diagnosed?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The recurrence was in the liver, 2 surgeries, CEA was in the blood steam. Check ups are: blood test for tumor markers, ultra sound alternated with CT scans. No tumor activity according to readings.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
that is great the colon cancer has not come back in 3 years.

in some patients aggressive local excisions in the liver for colon cancer metastasis can extend survival and increase the chance for long term cure.

that is good you are getting regular CEA blood tests and ultrasounds alternating with CT scans with contrast.

what your cancer doctors have done so far have given you your best chances at cure for this colon cancer.

also you should eat a good diet, lots of fruits and vegetables and low animal fats and meats and exercise to help improve your health and immune system.

continuing to follow up with your doctors and having a good diet and exercising will be your best methods to help you to keep your colon cancer from coming back.

Any reference to a homeopath doctor?

Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 years ago.
are you looking to find a homeopathic doctor who treats cancer patients in United Arab Emirates?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

If possible, yes. However, I doubt there are any.


Otherwise, an online doctor will do.
