Last night updating my blog, I wondered why I am taking a chance if a doctor can determine if I am allergic to Tykerb or not. I e-mailed my oncologist, and then, though it was after 10 pm, she replied to me allowing to hold off Tykerb until I hear from a specialist, with a sidenote that she was not sure if there was a skin test for Tykerb.
Although I initiated the question, once I was told to hold off the Tykerb, immediately I became nervous thinking ; ‘no. If I hold if off, cancer may grow fast,’ and ‘a specialist may not really find out if I am allergic to or not if there is no skin test.’
The appointment with an allergy specialist is next Thursday.
Vegetables and Fruits are Better Than Supplements
At night I went to a seminar of supplements sponsored by a hospital. I was amazed to hear that antioxidant vitamins are not only beneficial but also sometimes they could be harmful. A speaker said it would be much better to have a variety of vegetables and fruits instead of supplements in order to prevent cancer, although I thought I was doing so, and could not prevent cancer.
Being afraid of cancer getting active, I was thinking of taking acai berry juice . I was holding it off while I was taking radiation, but it is an antioxidant supplement. I was discouraged to take it again. Well, I guess I have to go back to my refuge-Jesus.
