Pancreatic Cancer: No Cure After Surgery, Gemzar and TCM herbs

Language: English

Her problem started with jaundice. Histology showed pancreatic ductal carcinoma with lymph node metastasis. She underwent 6 cycles of chemotherapy that cost S$2,500 per cycle. Before chemo, the oncologist told her she had a high chance of cure. Her CA 19.9 dropped to 100 plus. But after the last chemo, her CA 19.9 started rising to 224. Oncologist: “Something has gone wrong.”

A CT scan showed several tiny pulmonary nodules in both lungs. The oncologist said she must do more chemo, but there was no guarantee. Patient refused. She was on TCM herbs while doing her chemo. And continued until she came to see us. Her CA 19.9 is now 66,000.
