    Why can't we try alternatives? Radiation put me in a fog and now chemo isn't too bad..... When is the brain cancer coming back? I say never even though they say chances are good-- let me llive my life. My Dr. is from Duke University, good man.. He wants me to go down there eventually, but I don't know... I 'm not a lab rat. I do however want to do vitamins as I know 3 people who were told they will die in months and that was years ago... no lie--- One DR is a real Dr. and she travels the world, giving vitamins so I have the vitamins/liquids but am not taking them because of the chemo , I promised my Dr. to let the chemo take part so the vitamins are out until I'm done with chemo- I'll let you all know how it's going.. When my chemo is over I'm doing all vitamins and nutrients to combat all's all I have left.. My ex-husbands friend had a large brain tumor he now does vitamins and he's been with us for 6 yrs instead of 6 months....
