Kidney Cancer: Part 1 – Die of Cancer But Don’t Die A Bankrupt

Language: Bahasa Indonesia / Malaysia

It is bad enough to be diagnosed with metastatic kidney cancer. The situation gets more grim when you are told that there would be no cure. And you are told to take a drug that cost 100 million rupiah a month that may prolong your life from 2 months to 2 years (at most). The doctor scold you for not wanting to take the medication “because the more you wait, the more the cancer will spread and spread. You will not have any more hope”.
To offer a solution whereby the drug cost so much money is not solution to a normal wage earner. It is bad enough to get cancer but it would be even worse to make him a bankrupt while he is still alive – and perhaps leave a pile of debt that requires even his grandchildren to repay. Even if he live for an extra two years. What good is that?
On top of that, prolonging life comes with another price – severe side-effects.
So, is it really worth it?

Lung Cancer: Part 1 – An Outstanding Survivor

Language: Hokkien 

Sunday night, 18 November 2012 was a special night for us at CA Care Penang. Sujo, his wife and daughter came for a visit! We never thought we would see this patient again. The last time we saw him was in February 2011. Almost 2 years! We praise God for his blessings.
Briefly, Sujo was 58 years old when he came to see us. He is from Indonesia. Sometime in August 2010, he experienced breathlessness when climbing stairs. A CT scan in October 2010 indicated gross left pleural effusion associated with lung collapse. There was a lesion at T4 vertebral body associated with erosion. This means the cancer had spread to his bones.
The doctor taped out 2 litres of fluid from his lung. He was asked to go for chemotherapy, but he finally decided not to go ahead with the treatment. Instead, he came to CA Care.

 

Part 2 – Experience with Iressa & Tarceva While on CA Care Therapy

After encountering disaster after disaster, Sujo had no choice but to turn to the “cancer doctor” in his home town for help. Initially he was prescribed Iressa, which he took for 10 days and gave up due to the side effects. He then moved on to Tarceva.

 

Part 3 – Side Effects of Medical Treatment

In this video, you hear about (1) the side effects of surgery and (2) the side effects of Tarceva experienced by Sujo.

 

Part 4 – Can e-Therapy Help Him?

In general, when patients come and see us, they face two problems. One, they suffer the side effects of medical treatments (Part 3). We are expected to solve these problems for them. Two, we also have to take care of their cancer – by right our main concern. While the management of cancer takes place at home, we actively “work” with patients on their pain and physical issues.
