Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

I am a cancer doctor.

Dr. David :

what type of cancer does the patient have?

Dr. David :

it doesn't sound like the homeopathic agents are working.

Dr. David :

has the patient had a biopsy of the cancer in the arm pit?

Dr. David :

is it a breast cancer?

Dr. David :

are you interested in conventional cancer treatments?

Dr. David :

or does she want to stay with homeopathic treatments only?

Dr. David :

hello?

Customer:

The cancer started from the nail around five years back. Her finger was removed, After that node developed under arm pit. she developed dry skin and terible itching started at the back of ear. Since then she has gone three chemotherapy sessions but the node did not reduce. Now she is taking homeopathic treatment.

Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

it sounds like a squamous cell cancer spread to the arm pit.

Dr. David :

she should get 10-15 days of radiation to the arm pit.

Dr. David :

that will help shrink the lymph node there.

Dr. David :

is she willing to consider radiation therapy to help shrink it?

Customer:

She gets very weak after chemotherapy. Now she is some what reluctant to radiation therapy. Can radiation therapy completely cure the lymph node.

Dr. David :

it can shrink the lymph node

Dr. David :

but if the cancer has spread to other areas of the body, there is no cure for her cancer.

Dr. David :

radiation is much much less toxic than chemotherapy.

Dr. David :

and much more effective in the local area to shrink tumors which are problematic and bothersome.

Dr. David :

is the enlarged lymph node bothersome for her?

Customer:

Yes. It is painful.

Dr. David :

then she would benefit from radiation therapy for 2-3 weeks to help shrink the tumor

Dr. David :

and help decrease the pain

Dr. David :

radiation has a very high success rate to help ease pain and shrink tumors like this

Dr. David :

and will have much less side effects than chemotherapy.

Dr. David :

I hope she will be willing to reconsider radiation therapy.

Dr. David :

do you have other questions?

Customer:

I hope so. I will contact you soon after consulting her. Thanks.

Dr. David :

you are welcome

Hello
I am a board certified internist and a classical homeopath.

Carcinosinum is a good start, but there is no way to say what remedy is the correct one after this...it depends on extensive analysis....which better be done correctly.

Who is prescribing these remedies, what qualifications and training?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

These remedies were taken with the consultation of Dr.S.P.Sing (B.H.M.S). If you need the detailed history of the patient please inform. In case of any suggestion or change of medicines please advise. Your advise in this case will be highly appreciated

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.

She already had three chemo therapies about three months back. She started taking Carcinosinum-200 one dose after 8 days for two months. after that she is taking 1M dose after every 15 days since last two months.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
