Laura – I was scared by Dr. Cervantes of the Gerson clinic. On Tuesday he looked at my LDH blood levels and they were even higher than last time. The LDH is a cancer marker and he is worried something is happening that needs to be investigated. So he wants me to get a full body Pet Scan with radiated dye shot in to my arm. Before I do this, I want to get my blood work redone to see if there was a mistake. My malignant melanoma is a very fast moving cancer. It might have spread as I’ve only been doing the Gerson therapy for 3 and 1/2 months. Maybe the healing takes a while to kick in.
I have to be strong during this difficult time, but it is hard. Another way of looking at this situation is that my tumors are breaking up and releasing a lot of tissue and toxins and that could be creating the high LDH and causing some liver pain. Another healer on my support team says I shouldn’t be worried because this is what is happening. I certainly hope so. All the love and support from friends and family this week has meant a lot to me and keeps me strong.
