if you want your mother not to suffer then just full-fill her wishes & try to keep her happy by avoiding radiation & chemotherapy. cancer once spreaded to brain less chances of recovery.

My friend of 82yrs has been diagnosed with stage IV cancer Pelvic bone cancer , breast cancer , lower back cancer, skin cancer, stomache cancer and spots on her liver. she has had radiation for the pelvic bone cancer and is on Zobone drip treatment once a month. The doctor told her family she has between 12hrs - 14days to live. This is her second week and she is much better, in high spirits and walking unaided. Is this remission? Must we still expect the worst?

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.
