Brilliant Doc

Good Afternoon,

I hope everyone is enjoying the last sunny days of the summer. Vitamin D, soak up as much as you can.

I got some  news on my PET scan that I had last thursday. Good news is that the bottom half (neck down) of my body is clear off all cancer. Yippee. Unfortunately my brilliant ( yeah right) Doctors have not come to a conclusion  why my lymph node by my ear is the size of a gum ball. He (brilliant Doc) said it could be a few reasons. One is that the lymph is collecting white cells or cancer cells from the past surgery, an infection. Or...this is the best one...... It's a malignant tumor that they can't detect unless it grows or they do a needle biopsy. The plan is to do another PET scan in 3 weeks to compare it to last weeks scan.  
They  are pushing, telling, begging, asking  me to do radiation on my head, lymph nodes and neck. I am totally not into this. If it's not a tumor I would rather not do treatment and try another route.
Paul and I are heading down to the Bahamas on  Sunday to get started on the vaccine. I had sent a piece of my tumor there after my last surgery. Here is the link if anyone wants to take a look at it. It's not a cure, but should get my white cells moving.
If you know anyone who wants to try a more natural approach, send this link on. 

Have a great day
