Thanks for the additional information,
Diet and lifestyle DO MATTER in my opinion. Smoking
is something he should work on - quitting this would be a great idea.
Diet - good well, balanced healthy diet AND regular exercise - this will be slow and gradual as he gains strength.
should improve in the coming days and weeks - sometimes an iron supplenment is needed to suppot better blood counts.
With no chemo the chance of recurrence is higher. I would consider chemo strongly under the supervision of a good medical oncologist
. Treatment of cancer is an art in addition to being a science - each and every patient is unique and treatment is tailored as such.
The heart attack
and PE are important to consider but these are not contraindications to chemo
Thanks again for the query,
