Rotten Breasts, “Rotten Morning.”

This morning, 8 March 2018, is indeed a “rotten” morning. Why? Two patients came, one after another, with a rotten breast. It was so sad. Why do women allow such thing to happen to them?

After that a young lady came on behalf of her sister who had breast cancer. She had undergone all medical treatments — surgery, chemo and radiation. Less than three years later, the cancer spread to her liver. She was admitted into a hospital to drain off fluid from her abdomen. The oncologist asked her to do chemotherapy right away. The family hesitated and wanted us to help her.

I told the sister, I am afraid I cannot help her. She is in the hospital  under the care of an oncologist. How could I interfere? Also, I have no magic cure. The sister broke down and cried, pleading that her sister’s children are still small. Sad. But this is the reality. Such thing happen very often — I have seen enough of them.

Learning about three disasters in one morning is about the limit! No more please!

The fourth breast cancer case this morning is about a 69-year-old lady who had a mastectomy. After the surgery, the doctor referred her to an oncologist for follow-up chemotherapy. The family refused the treatment. On the next follow-up with the doctor, the daughter asked the doctor to suggest an alternative therapy. Apparently this doctor understood the predicament the family was in. He sent the family to see CA Care! (such a thing rarely happens! Unique! More on this in later posting).

Now, let us talk about rotten breasts and how some naive women end up with it.

Ibu A is 69 years old. She found a lump above her breast about three years ago. She did nothing about it. The lump grew bigger. In early 2018, she went to a doctor and did a biopsy. It was cancerous. The doctor suggested an operation but Ibu A refused. She came and seek our advice.

This was my advice to her that morning.

 

Ibu B is 51 years old. About two years ago she felt a big lump in her breast. She does not know when this lump came about. After the discovery of the lump, she refused to seek medical help. Instead, she went to an acupunturist-cum-herbalist. She was prescribed herbs and she had been taking the herbs until a wound developed in her breast like below.

She was adamant of not wanting to see any doctor and came to seek our help. (Note: I came to know later that her sister is actually a medical doctor who also has breast cancer in both breasts. The medical doctor sister is now undergoing chemotherapy. But Ibu B chooses not to follow her sister’s path).

This was my advice to her that morning.

 

Comments

Both these ladies came to seek our help, hoping that we can cure their already rotten, cancerous breast. No, we cannot cure.

To both of them (and also those ladies out there, harbouring the same attitude) I have this advice:

  1. If you find a lump in your breast, it is best that you see a doctor. Determine if it is cancerous or not. If it is, have the lump removed cleanly. I stress, CLEANLY. Because of that I would suggest that you go for a mastectomy rather than a lumpectomy.

I am aware that research has shown that a lumpectomy is just as effective as a mastectomy. But, that is when the doctor removes the lump cleanly — what if the doctor leaves some cancerous tissues behind?

Don’t ever believe that herbs, taking supplements, etc., etc. can make the cancerous lump go away. You will be taking a great risk. My twenty-over-years of experience tells me that herbs may make non-cancerous lump or cyst in the breast  go away but not cancerous lump.

  1. After the surgery, you are often told to go for chemotherapy, radiotherapy or hormonal therapy. If you want to follow your doctor’s recommendation, it is your decision. But if you want an alternative path, you can come and see us.
  1. In the case of Ibu A, the situation is rather tricky. She is already 87 years old. Can she survive a mastectomy? I don’t know. Let the medical experts decide on that.

After the surgery, Ibu A can come back to see us again for help. This is because she and her family would not want further treatments like chemo or radiation.

On the other hand, if Ibu A is asked to undergo chemotherapy before the surgery, this is another tricky matter. In fact Ibu requested that I prescribe her herbs instead asking her to see a surgeon. I told her that I would give her the herbs if the surgeon does not want to operate on her or ask her to do chemo first.

But for Ibu B. The situation is different. She is still young. She must get the rotten mass removed first before starting on the herbs.

  1. If patients want know where to go for the operation in Penang, I suggest that they go to Dr. A of Hospital B or Dr. C of Hospital D. Over the years, patients tell me that these two doctors are good, considerate and compassionate. Go to these doctors.

 

Living with Your Rotten Breast, anyone?

There are two other cases of breast cancer that “hit” me this morning.

Kathy (not real name) is a lady in her mid-forties. She dropped by our centre after learning from a friend about CA Care.

In 1998 (that’s 19 years ago!), Kathy felt a small lump in her left breast. She did nothing about it, although she said she started to pay attention to her diet. By taking care of her diet she was hoping the lump would go away. Unfortunately, contrary to the claims in the internet, the lump did not go away.

Kathy said she endured severe stress when at work — it was always work, work and work in the office. In addition, she suffered emotional stress due to family problems.

In 2010 (that’s 17 years ago), Kathy noticed that the lump grew bigger. She did nothing about it.

Chris: Why did you not go and see a doctor and do something about it?

Kathy: I don’t believe in the doctors anymore! My 54-year-old sister had cancer of the uterus. She went to a hospital in our hometown and underwent an operation. Then she had four rounds of chemotherapy. Each round of chemo consisted of six cycles. (That’s a total of 24 cycles). She died within three years.

So, NO. I don’t want to do any chemo.

In 2011, Kathy underwent a nutritional-colon-cleansing therapy. The therapy was for 7 days. This cost RM1,200. Then in 2014, Kathy came to Penang again for another session of the therapy. This cost RM2,700.

Now, this is what her breast looks like.

 

Kathy claimed that after her therapy in Penang, the lump became smaller (like the picture in the right above).

Listen to our conversation.

 

My advice.

  1. Go and see a doctor and have your rotten breast removed. No, it is no use taking my herbs if the tumour is still there. You will not be able to cure this.
  2. I understand your reluctance to undergo chemotherapy or radiotherapy. But take it from me that at times you need medical treatment like surgery to help you.
  3. The doctor may want you to undergo a few cycles of chemo to shrink the tumour before he can remove the tumour. If you have to do that, go ahead and do it. I can give you Chemo-tea to help you with the side effects.
  4. The thing to do now is to go and find a doctor who can help you. Ask him questions and see how he answers you questions. If you don’t like his “attitude / response ” then walk away and go find someone you are happy with.
  5. Before the surgery, ask how much the procedure is going to cost you. Can he cure you? What does he want you to do after surgery?
  6. You have to learn how to take care of yourself after the operation. Avoid stress, do exercise, take care of your diet, and you can take herbs.
  7. The most important thing is for you to first find peace within your heart. Then follow what your heart says. I am not going to force you to do what you don’t want to do. It is your life and you decide.
  8. So go home and evaluate what I have told you. Seek spiritual help. Pray.
  9. After surgery, if you need help, come and see me and I shall help you the best I can.
  10. For now, I am not going to prescribe you any herbs. No use. Give yourself a month to decide. 

Case 3: Breast Burst and Bled after Keladi Tikus!

This is an email I received this same  morning. I don’t attempt to edit it. Here it goes:

31 March 2017

Dear Chris,

Good Day!

I have mom which suffer of breast cancer. Previously almost 4 month she consume the Keladi Tikus (Typhonium).

After 4 months the breast suddenly burst and bleeding. We send my mom to Hospital and found its already stage 4 but the burst part the cancer didn’t exist anymore.

Then my mom hand become swallow like full of water and its start coming out through the armpit.

Now every day we send to clinic to do dressing and eat the apricot seed & sour sop fruit & turmeric soup. My mom afraid to eat the Typhonium anymore.

Sometimes the breast beating and we did not sure what the causes, either by foods that she consume or may be the medicine effect.

Can some one help us what should we do. My mom should do chemotherapy and surgery can’t be done because of age factor. 

Reply: Where are you from  …. Jakarta? Where did you get the keladi tikus?

Dear Chris,

Im from Malaysia and i got it from Kuala Lumpur supplier ? Why ?

Did any fake Keladi Tikus at any market, I will check the brands name at advise accordingly.

Reply: The stuff is not mine …. I advise you to go and see the doctor and have the breast removed!

Dear Chris,

Has been see doctor and they unable to remove cause of age factor.

Thanks for your time.

Reply: How old ??????  My herbs cannot cure.

Dear Chris,

65 years old.

Reply: I am really sorry I don’t know what to say or advise. I also don’t know how to solve your problem. No one on earth can cure any cancer. Why don’t you go and consult the doctors in Institute Kanker Negara in Putrajaya? May be they can help.  I am only sitting down in front of a computer.

If you still want  help …. come and see me in Penang with all the reports.

Something is not right .. and the keladi tikus is not mine! People believe too much in newspaper reports.

Dear Chris,

It’s okay. Thank for your time and will try to consult in Inst. Kanker Negara.

Comment

They say, ignorance is bliss. They also say, knowledge is power (and may even save your life). Make your choice.

As much as I feel sad to see these cases, I know that patients need to find healing for themselves. At CA Care we are only able to show you the way. You need to decide what you want to do. Most important of all, you need to walk that healing path yourself.

You can choose or dictate what you want to do, but you cannot choose its outcome. 

Choose what you should do, not what you want to do.
