On stopping treatment.

Yes, I'm stopping a type of treatment for a while. No, it's not chemotherapy.

Remember that nasty tasting Cantron stuff? Well, now that I'm actually in the soup with chemotherapy, I think it's time to put it on the shelf for a while.

I read from the Cantron materials and on their website that (1) chemotherapy prevents Cantron from working properly (and usually keeps it ineffective for up to four months after the last chemo treatment), and (2) Cantron may help reduce the side effects of chemotherapy.

Well, choking this stuff down every four hours IS a side effect. It adds to nausea. They seem to have some better drugs for prevention of nausea these days, so I'm going to put the Cantron on the shelf and hope chemo does the trick. If I need to take down the Cantron again, we're in big trouble.

The lady that sold me the stuff said it works best when used apart from other treatments. So I have to chose between chemo, which has worked in the past but nearly killed me, and the unknown un-approved supplement. Chemotherapy is barbaric, but it could actually work. I'm not afraid of alternative medicine, but I think I'll save it until it's the ONLY alternative, yes?

Still, it will be a nice break from the nasty stuff. When you're sick like this, every little thing you can free yourself from feels touched with Grace.
