My brother-in-law diagnosed with leukamia. Suggest me the treatment.

Hi , I need information on leukamia. My brother-in-law has been diagnosed with leukamia-type AML. He is 35-36 yrs of age. He is in USA now and is taking treatment in James Cancer Hospital,Ohio state,USA. HE said he is been giving chaemotherapy there. But here in india we are afraid about how the treatment prevents the disease? Is there anything to worry about? Also we heard that, chaemotherapy gives side efffects. In a similar manner, he said some hair loss is there and he s also getting rashes . IS this going to stop after the treatment? Please let us know if there is any better treatment without side effects? Also, please let us know about the James cancer hospital,ohio, about the treatment there and all? This is what the information I have, please let us know compleet better treatment details.... Eventhough we are afraid , we are giving him the positive approach and not to feel bad. He is also taking the treatment bravely, with all his will. Waiting for reply .

Myself Amalendra Pandey am the patient of blood cancer AML M0. As I had gone through chaemotherapy in India at Tata Memorial Bombay. I too had as you mentioned but need not to worried about.Everybody recoverred from above all side effects after sometime say one year.
I would like to mention you that Doctors adwised me to go through BMT as my type M0 is rare and risky,chances of relapse is 80%. I had been gone for unrelated BMT as I had not gotten matching in between siblings. Doctors had started search of Bone marrow but could not found tet today. I have taken Herbal Medicine given by Vaidyaraj in local forest area , at the same time I have joined Yoga class. I have continued my suppliments from Amways(Natural B, Bio C & Parselenium E). It is 8 months passed my blood couts are normal and I have joined my duty since last 4 months. I never bother about my survival at the age of 47years even after Ihave huge liability of my 8 years old daughter and wife.
I mean to say you that you need not to worry as your brother in law is at safe place. It does not matter where do you Hospitalised but of course it matters how do tackle the cancer. You give him message to fight bravelly every thing will be as good as earlier. Have you heard about Indian filmi song "Darti hai duniya darane wala chahiye" is like "Darta hai cancer darane wala chahiye".
you can talk to me at my cell no. 09407982914. any time. I would be glad to share the thoughts from persons suffering from Lukemia.
