He has 3 tumors from 10mm to 40mm and seems to be inoperable. He already had 3 sets of TMZ and he is taking already some supplements I recommended based on my researches on Internet.
Here is his complete current treatment started 1 month after first diagnosis (time to perform biopsy) :
Biopsy revealed :
- IDH1 : negative
- FGFR3 : negative
- P53 protein : 15 - 20%
- no information on MGMT
MRI performed early december has show a slight size increase in the 2 biggest tumors, the oncologist says it is not alarming as the treament started one month after first diagnosis.
Currently my father resists well and tries to keep daily walking activity. Next MRI will be next month.
I just recently discovered the cocktail approach and your blog and I have some questions.
1. It seems many patients are taking Melatonin 20 mg/ day (forbidden in France at this dosage by the way) and that it could be of good help : sustains the immune system, anti-oxidant, anti inflammatory, leads to cancer cells suicide ... Should I add Melatonin to the treatment ? It seems also that Malatonin is non compliant with corticoids as it inhibits corticoids effects : what do you think ?
2. More globally I fear corticoids may have a negative impact on the different supplements. Is there a mean to sustitute it by anything else ? Is Celebrex an option ? If so at which dosage ? (the inflammation is still important, but decreasing).
3. Would you have any recommandation in other supplements or drugs ? PSK mushroom, Valpoic Acid, Metformin?
Thank you very much for your precious help.
