Utahbunny, I was the writer "An-246788", but now I'm "whisper". I have a naturopathic oncologist, but he seems very slow to recommend specifics for me. He is focused on gluten allergies and digestion. I believe his clinic does vitamin C IV. I would love to have the confidence to just do it all natural, like you, but I am nervous. It is made to sound, by the medical profession, that chemo is the only thing that works with TNBC. I was told that chemo would improve the odds by 14% with chemo (but was also told that chemo may make no difference at all). I would really like to talk with your nautropathic doctor. Sure appreciate your input. It is very difficult to find anyone with TNBC that is already 3 years out.View Thread
I just wrote a response to you about my diagnosis getting worse after 2 surgeries. Forgot to mention that it is now triple negative. Also noticed that you are now 3 years out from your diagnosis, with no chemo. That is so encouraging. I've been in a tailspin since knowing my TNBC and oncotype results. By the way the oncotype test is usually not done on my type of CA, but my oncologist suggested it, I think, to show me how high risk I am for recurrence and metastisis and to show how essential it is to have chemo. I've been mostly a vegetarian/vegan for a few years, trying to juice, taking some cancer fighting supplements, but I want to be more aggressive with the natural approach.View Thread
