    Is there anyone here going without chemo? I don’t want to go that route. Right now I average a transfusion every 6 months. Other than feeling exhausted all the time I do function. I am 66 and hate the thought of chemo. Anyone doing the natural route would appreciate your feedback.

    Hi Sheri – I went straight to supplements and diet changes, which helped clean me out a bit. However, my blood counts have been steadily getting lower and lower, and I’m slated for a SCT, so I would probably suggest to both improve your overall health by eating whole foods, trying some Naturopathic Oncology, but also expect that you will need chemo to eradicate the cancerous cells. IMHO. Chemo sucks, but so does cancer… ugh.

    I have a couple of cases on complete remission after failed chemotherapy ( Jakavi & Thalix ) Weekly Blood Transfusions to Blood Transfusion Free over 2 years now in one case. Blood Transfusion Free for over 6 months in another case. Very Interesting Cases 😊
