    You need to de-acidify your body.

    Don't eat anything for 48 hours and drink nothing but baking soda & low ph (high alkalinity) water. After 48 hours, eat only low heat cooked vegitables and continue with a tblsp of BS n water every 12 hours.

    Live by this!

    Oh, btw..........keep on rockin also! :shred2:

    Again, thank you all for your prayers and positive thoughts.

    I'm going for my first chemo infusion on Monday Feb. 3rd.

    It's a 9:00 Am session and I want to sit, or rather hide, in a corner spot.

    Why?........Because I don't want any of the kind chemo patients coming to me and asking how I'm doing.

    I recall those Stage 4 patients barely walking to me and wishing me well when I was getting chemo 3 years ago.

    You never want to see anyone in so much pain asking you how you're doing.

    I remember at one sitting where there was a 23 year old girl with a needle in her arm because she has colon cancer.

    Hey, I'm going to be 67.

    I have years of living still in me.

    A 23 year old shouldn't have this pain.

    It's heartbreaking.

    Pray for the young adults and children.

    are you allowed to (or physically able to) play guitar in the room where everyone gets chemo? perhaps you can either play, or introduce others to start to play for fun/enjoyment. this may take their mind off things. The pleasure of learning to play guitar, if they've always wanted to, can be good medicine.

    I'm not sure if this is a good thing to do.

    There are 2 TV's in the room.

    People are on their computers; reading or just sleeping.

    I have been wondering this same thing. My wife has be getting chemo since September.
    Feb 3 she gets that shit removed. I didn't know a tumor could be so large. Chemo room has 4 chairs. One in each corner. Would kinda like to play for them but don't know if it is good idea or no. Sometimes there are people in there who seem to require peace and quiet. I don't want to intrude on that.
    CANCER SUCKS

    My prayers to you and your wife.

    IMO, people want to be at peace with their affliction and may not want to hear anything but silence.

    Yes Axe, keep up the good fight and others fighting this nasty battle. Besides what the Israelis discovered a year or so ago this recently came out from the UK. I'm posting this from another forum I venture to. If true, hope it pans out and not lobbied against by the pharmaceutical companies. I guess we now have right to try.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science...ncers-discovered-accident-british-scientists/

    Researchers at Cardiff University were analysing blood from a bank in Wales, looking for immune cells that could fight bacteria, when they found an entirely new type of T-cell.

    That new immune cell carries a never-before-seen receptor which acts like a grappling hook, latching on to most human cancers, while ignoring healthy cells.

    In laboratory studies, immune cells equipped with the new receptor were shown to kill lung, skin, blood, colon, breast, bone, prostate, ovarian, kidney and cervical cancer.
