I agree with sis cris25. Effective nga si Guyabano. My aunt is eating yung fruit talaga ng guyabano tapos yung balat parang binoboil tapos iinumin.

Sis Calie_girl, my mom would undergo chemo treatment maybe next week. Can you ask your mom or tita if ok lang ba uminom ng pinakuluang dahon ng guyabano to serve as her water during chemo sessions? and ok lang ba ang mga fresh fruit/veggie juice? kc i've researched that veggies must be well cooked to kill the bacteria coz mas prone sila sa infection. sis, please give me advice on how ur tita handled her chemo treatment and how ur mom took care of your tita. I want to prepare myself. thanks!

Hi sis...Good luck sa mom mo. She can make it! Basta stay positive and pray harder...my aunt is eating fresh guyabano fruit mismo during chemo, and the pinakuluang leaves. Tapos healthy vegies and sabayan ng Fern-C. Ang alam ko sis, nung mga unang chemo niya nag-stay sila sa hospital mga 2-days ata, pero nung mga succeedings na parang out-patient na lang, after chemo, nakakauwi na sila. ayun lang hilong-hilo siya. Si mama ko talaga ang nag-asikaso sa kanya ever since, grabe, kitang-kita ko ang hirap ng mama ko. Everyday nasa tabi si mama ng Aunt ko to support her kung ano gusto niya para maging comfortable sya every chemo. Basta sis, lakasan mo loob mo, and prayer talaga! we'll pray for your mom...good luck! :)

@mommyayie: nag evolve at improve na rin ang mga medicines for chemo, di na mararanasan ng patient yong hirap, vomit, etc. or shall i say, depende sa gamot na ibibigay sa patient.

i have officemate who is in her 4th chemo session, outpatient lang sya, after 1 hour (sa IV yong chemo med), uuwi na sya, kinabukasan papasok na sya sa office, feeling pagod lang naramdaman niya kinabukasan. sa PGH sya nakakuha ng lowest price, tag P45K yong gamot plus professional fee pa.  consultant ng PGH ang doctor niya.  sabi nga niya, exaggerated na raw yong napapanood sa movie at tv na sobrang hirap ang naranasan ng patient after chemo.  she's suffering now from hair loss lang.

actually, di sya agad nagpachemo kasi naunahan sya sa takot ng effect ng chemo like vomit, dehydration, etc. etc.  she  tried alternative medicines pero di effective sa kanya kaya nag pachemo na rin sya. she even told us na kung di lang sya naunahan ng takot, eh sana tapos na ang chemo therapy niya.

Thank you sis Calie_girl. Maswerte ang aunt mo kc she has your mom to take care of her. I know my mom would make it. Basta if ever I have I have queries, di ako mahihyang magtanong sayo ha.

Thanks sis mama_jo for sharing. Ang galing naman ng officemate mo. Nakakapagwork pa siya. I’m really inspired w/ stories of cancer survivors coz it makes me believe that there’s still a chance. That not everyone w/ cancer dies. Anong type and stage ng cancer niya sis?

the chemo effects differs from each patients

others may suffers so much pain while on others its just like an ordinary day

it will be unfair siguro to call na exagerated yung mga nakikita sa tv

-- my mom will undergo another biopsy test, this time both breast na, dati kasi left breast yung obvious that theres something wrong.. the doctors are thinking baka kumalat na since my mom ayaw talaga pa-opera and to undergo chemo

sa tingin ko chemo really helps para mapahaba ang buhay or tuluyan na maging cancer free, depende rin siguro sa tao yung decision.

sa case ng SIL ko, stage 4 colorectal cancer, sa ganitong stage months na lang talaga ang aabutin pero almost 2years pa naextend ang life niya nung nagchemo siya, alam ko nag take din siya ng herbal and mga buyabano, pinadadala pa yun to US. though lumalaban pa siya hindi na talaga kinaya ng katawan niya. kumalat na talaga, so 9 days before christmas kinuha na rin siya.  =(

sa lolo naman ng hubby ko, stage 4 na rin yata liver cancer naman, pero hindi na siya nagchemo or gamot kasi sabi niya, gagastos lang daw and ayaw din niya sa hospital, so almost two months lang, bumigay na rin siya. parang hindi na rin kakayanin ng katawan niya sabi ng doctor if ever magchemo.

pero yung tito ko stage 2 brain cancer naman, alam ko inoperahan siya tapos may tinanggal na bukol, nakarecover naman agad and 6 years ago na yun. buhay na buhay pa siya and nagwowork pa rin.

Mga sis question ko lang. Yung tita ko kasi, mom tawag ko sa kanya since sya nagpalaki sakin, nagkaroon ng period for one day last year pa yun eh menopause na sya kasi 55 na sya that time. Tapos meron syang mabahong discharge na talagang naaamoy minsan. Refuse niya lagi magpacheck up. Sabi ko magpa papsmear sya. She's single and never been pregnant. Natatakot man akong isipin, pero diba ganun ang signs and symptoms ng cervical cancer? Sumasakit din puson niya minsan. Pls help kung papano ko sya makkumbinsing magpa checkup :( worried talaga ako.

@mommyayie: sis, mas maganda talaga na ASAP ang chemo treatment, yong officemate ko na removed both breasts last april pa pero di sya agad nagchemo kasi nga natakot sya sa side effects, nag alternative pa sya, nag start sya ng chemo last October na, nagkaroon ng regrowth ang cancer cell at nagstart ng kumalat sa lungs niya. ask nyo na lang ang oncologist ng mom mo kung gaano kaimportante ang chemo agad.  ang iiwasan daw kasi is yong kakalat na sa ibang parts ang cancer cell kaya immediate dapat.

@ sis mama_jo, we're asking for financial assistance sa PCSO, pag naayos na yun i'll tell my mom to undergo chemo immediately. Iniisip niya kasi yung effect ng chemo sa Christmas. Gusto niya daw mafeel ang Christmas na malakas siya. Sabi ko naman, Pag nagpachemo siya agad, wala na ang effet nun sa Christmas coz if i'm not mistaken, estimated 10 days lang ang effect ng chemo then back to normal (tama ba?) Ok naman sa kanya. OO daw, papachemo na daw siya once ok na ang financial.

@sis TheBlackMaria, sis you have to convince your tita na magpacheck-up lalo na single siya. Parang mas prone yata ang mga single sa mga sakit sa matres.  Explain mo nalang na mas maganda ang early detection. Di gaya ni mama ko, lumabas na sa ovary ang cancer cell kaya kahit tinaggal na nag ovary, uterus at cervix niya, kumalat na sa ibang parts. Kung yung sa tita mo, nasa cervix pa lang or nasa uterus, pag tinaggal yun, tanggal na den if ever cancer nga (wag naman sana...)

@sis michi247, yes sis, buo na nag decision namin na magpachemo si mama, sana magtagal pa buhay ni mama ko at mawala na ng tuluyan ang mga cancer cells.

@sis ahyzeyuh, Lakasan mo ang loob mo, ang loob natin. Sana magsurvive pareho ang moms natin.

I'm just wondering bakit ganun, ang dami pa ring namamatay sa cancer kahit nagpapachemo na. Ang silbi lang ba ng chemo is to extend the life of the cancer patient?...

depende rin siguro kung kaya ng body, kasi di ba pagchemo good and bad cells ang naapektuhan. kaya yung iba nagheherbal like nung mga napapanood ko sa tv, as in raw food ang halos kinakain and survivor na sila.

or depende rin siguro sa stage ng cancer kung kelan nadetect, sa MIL ko, uterus cancer din, tinanggal din sa kanya, pero ok pa rin siya, survivor talaga, di pa yata kami magkakilala ni hubby nung nangyari yun (9yrs na kami magkakilala ni hubby). kaya kabado din ako kasi lahi nila hubby yung cancer kaya ingat din sa food.

good luck sa chemo ni mama mo and sana maging survivor din siya. nothing is impossible with God.

@Sis michi247: Nice to hear another cancer survivor story. Ano kayang stage nung sa MIL mo? Nagchemo ba siya sis?  I still keep my faith na magiging survivor ang mom ko and ni sis ahyzeyuh. OO nga sis no, may lahi pala si hubby ng cancer. Mas prone ngayong generation kasi dahil sa mga pagkain ngayon na mostly processed na. Kaya ingat-ingat talaga.

@ mommyayie
yup im starting to pray now.
finally my mom is willing to undergo operation but chemo shes still uncertain, sana mapapayag siya namin

 kailangan muna uli undergo mamogram and biopsy again kasi the doctor wants current report

all other parts of the body also needs to undergo test kung kaya ba ng katawan niya. ang taong test

but before doing that, my mom wants to go to Bicol, pay visit to Our Lady of Salvation in  Tiwi, Bicol. A  Miraculous  church, she wants to make panata ist.

instead of celebrating her 60th birthday, she wants to use the money sa pagpunta don
