Is it Safe to Take Antioxidant Type Supplements with Chemo or Radiation?

“I took my Moxxor all through chemo and continue to take it every day! I KNOW it has helped to save my life. I reach for it for pain as well rather than relying on the the prescription drugs they gave me for pain, as soon as the effects of my surgery calmed down. The problem with narcotic type drugs after surgery is they bind you up, if you know what I mean and that can be worse than the pain when you want to have things move again and what do they (hospitals) do… they give you another drug for that. It takes a long while to achieve homeostasis (balance) again however the more we work with the natural alternatives or include them along the way I think we are all better for it.” Continue reading

Celeste Update – Cancer Free at Last!

celestialmusingsblog:

Thank you so much Therese and Trekkerscrapbook, you are so right the bills that insurance doesn’t cover are enormous and the financial stress is of course, still there big time. All the therapies must be continued as does the mainstream medicine. Next procedure comes up in October which is to surgically, under anesthesia remove the IVC filter which protects me from the possibility that my blood clots could migrate. I so appreciate every dollar that has been donated from all of your hearts! All my love to each and everyone of you!

Cancer FreeFriends, I am so very happy to relay to you Celeste’s latest update.  She is FREE at LAST of CANCER!   She still has the blood clots, and will have to be on blood thinners for 6 months, but the fact that she is free of the stage 3 ovarian cancer is nothing but miraculous.

Celeste, I’m so happy for you, for you have worked so hard through a lot of hell to come out the other side of this.   YOU MADE IT!!!!  And being home with family and friends will surely improve you recovery and the love from all of us is a great hug of support and joy!  (Jumping with joy here!)

Of course, one has to be tested to be sure the cancer will not return, but I’m sure with love and support, it won’t have a chance.  And Friends, PLEASE remember to CONTINUE to SUPPORT Celeste’s cancer…

We just got an update from Celeste that her surgery today went perfectly! So happy to hear this!  Here’s her summary:

I’m in recovery now following the surgery to place the IVC filter in the vena cava vein. They went into the vein via my vein in my neck. The anesthesia gave me a wonderful sleep and I woke up happy with Nazim right by me side. Docs said it went perfectly and they will go on to take it out in October.

We’re having fun with the wonderful nurses as they keep me a little while longer for observation.

I finally got to eat a sandwich and have my Orgain shake.

So one down and the big surgery is next on July 24th. We got this!!!!

Please don’t forget to contribute to Celeste’s cancer fund  for every little bit will…

Dear Friends,

Celeste has just left an update about the implantation of the IVC filter to her leg vein to prevent the two clots from possibly traveling to her heart or brain. She will be having the hernia surgery later this month. Please keep Celeste in your prayers and please help to increase her cancer fund to help pay for the bills that her insurance won’t cover.   http://www.gofundme.com/kvo9xs

Every bit helps!  And our love, prayers and healing thoughts are with you, Celeste.  <3 <3

I just got word that I will be having the out patient procedure tomorrow, July 7th and this is where they will surgically implant an IVC filter in my vein to prevent the two DVTs (blood clots) from possibly migrating to my heart or lungs. I will be “out” for the procedure but will return home to rest afterwards.

I saw on line that there…
