Recently Diagnosed or Relapsed? Stop Looking For a Miracle Cure, and Use Evidence-Based Therapies To Enhance Your Treatment and Prolong Your Remission

Multiple Myeloma an incurable disease, but I have spent the last 25 years in remission using a blend of conventional oncology and evidence-based nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies from peer-reviewed studies that your oncologist probably hasn't told you about.

Multiple Myeloma Therapy- Surgical Solutions

“In recent years, surgical consultation has been recommended for MM patients with intractable pain, spinal instability and pathological fractures…”

The article linked and excerpted below might as well be talking about me when I was first diagnosed with multiple myeloma (MM). Neck pain, spinal instability, pathalogical fractures,  nerve damage, muscle tingling and weakness…And surgery removed the lesion causing the damage and surgery alleviated  the pain. Most of us mm patients don’t think of surgery as an important multiple myeloma therapy. But it it. Surgical solutions stabilized my spine and put me into remission.

The challenge for MM patients is that we all think of chemotherapy and radiation as our primary therapy solutions. Or I should say that the majority of the studies about MM therapy are about chemotherapy- singlets, doublets, triplets, RRMM, etc.

I’m writing this post to insert surgery into the discussion about MM therapies.

The key to your cancer surgery is pre-habilitation. Preparing for your surgery through nutrition, exercise, supplementation, etc. give you and your body it’s best chance for recovery.

The studies linked and excerpted below report how to maximize surgical outcomes.

For more information on both conventional and non-conventional therapies for cancer, scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

thank you,

Comparative analysis of the surgical treatment results for multiple myeloma bone disease of the spine and the long bone/soft tissue

“The present retrospective study was designed to compare the pain relief, surgery duration, life quality, survival time and relative prognostic factors in multiple myeloma (MM) bone disease patients with different surgical sites…

Frequently, one or more vertebral bodies are detected to be affected by vertebral collapse and/or osteolytic lesions, and long bone fractures more commonly occur in the proximal locations of the upper arm and femora (7).

In addition, occasionally soft tissue mass appears in extramedullary tissue, resulting in severe pain and reducing the quality of life. In recent years, surgical consultation has been recommended for MM patients with intractable pain, spinal instability and pathological fractures (8); however, the results of the surgery performed on different sites are not definite. To date, no previous studies have conducted a comparative analysis of different surgical sites of MM patients…

In conclusion, based on the literature and the current findings, it is suggested that surgical treatment is an effective method in MM patients whether the lesion is located in the spine or in the long bone and soft tissue.

Preoperative pain, PTA, albumin, urine protein and postoperative chemotherapy are associated with the patient prognosis. Postoperative analgesic use should be individualized according to the different surgical sites and postoperative periods…”

Cancer Prehabilitation Improves Outcomes

“Cancer Prehabilitation is one or more therapies that each of us understands intuitively. Performing a certain exercise to prepare for surgery to improve the healing time or the recovery time just makes sense. Learning about your cancer diagnosis in order…”

‘Prehabilitation’ Before Colon Cancer Surgery May Aid Recovery

“Prehabilitation prepares patients to withstand the stress of surgery so they are able to recover faster and function better after the procedure,”

“Pre-surgery conditioning helps patients take an active role in their own recovery. We believe instituting prehabilitation before surgery when possible could improve health and recovery and reduce costs…”

Surgery is the primary treatment for colorectal cancer, the third most common type of cancer in the United States, the researchers noted…

“Even when there are no complications, colorectal cancer surgery patients suffer from a 20 to 40 percent reduction in functional capacity after surgery…”
