Still Waiting on Results  

Posted in

My mother in law finally had her MRI yesterday. For those of you in the dark, she had a mammogram in January that showed a rather large lesion on one breast. Since she had been on hormone therapy for the past 2 years (yes, Estrogen, which can cause cancer - UGH) she had to stop taking the Estrogen and wait 30 days before being able to have the MRI. She was supposed to have it earlier this week but, get this...the machine broke down about 20 minutes before her appointment! What the hell?!

So, she had the MRI yesterday and they told her it could take up to 5 days to get results because they mail them to her doctor. They also told her if she called her doctor and asked, her doctor could probably call for the results. She called her doctor this morning only to find out the office is closed until Monday because of the holiday. My guess is she won't know anything until Tuesday, at the very earliest.

*I* am anxious and it's not even my results I'm waiting for. This has been drawn out way too long. I can't believe all the set backs she's had either. What in the world?

Since she has been studying alternative medicine, she feels that it is in her best interest to seek alternative healthcare should she have cancer and wants to give the Hoxsey Clinic a try.
This clinic treats most types of malignancies, but it is said to be especially effective with skin cancer (including melanoma), breast cancer, and has been successful with some recurrent cancers and even with patients who've had radiation and/or chemotherapy. Often what people will do is combine Hoxsey treatment with other approaches, like laetrile.

It is not as expensive as many therapies - it costs only $3500 for the therapy no matter how long it takes, with 30% due at the first appointment. So, her plan is to take a plane to California, stay at a hotel near the border and then hop on over to Mexico for an appointment. It's just one appointment - they give you all you 'vitamins' and any medical instructions and send you back. You're in and out. Then you return in 3 months for a follow up.

Now, with all the shit going down in Mexico lately, I'm more than freaking out about this idea.

I have been researching this place and it is definitely seems legitimate. Anyone know anything about it?
