Ever since I got out of hospital, I have not felt like taking the supplements but have persevered, halving the dose on most days. When I was sick last week with the flu, I really did not feel like taking them so stopped for those days.
I took the supplements again for the last 4 days but felt more and more ill each time I took them.
Last night, I vomited which I thought would relieve the nausea but the vomiting carried on for the next 2 hours - not pleasant at all!! I could never be bulimic!!
Just because something is natural doesn't mean it is safe or without side effects. I also need to do more research on the interactions of the supplements I am taking - but not sure interactions will even be documented yet.
I am seeing Dr Craig Golding again tomorrow to hear his suggested next step after reviewing my blood and urine results.
I still do not have the results from the breast tissue analysis.
My mammographer called today to see how I was doing and said if it was him, he would give the chemo a skip. If the Her2 is positive, maybe just do the Hercepin.
I also want to see if I can substitute the Tamoxifen with natural alternatives.
I am still undecided about chemo.
The supplements I am taking include:
- DIM + I3C
- Reduced L-Glutamine
- Vitamin D3
- Curcumin + quercetin
- Co enzyme Q10
- Melatonin at night - 9mg
