My husband came home from hospital being transported by me and our son in wheelchair, and I had to install a lift chair for him in order to go up stair and vice versa.
He had to go in disability, it was no way to be able to return to work as an architect
His back pain was excruciating. At the worst, he was on morphine pills. When he’s got better, he was on Tremadol pills. Presently, he is on NOTHING he can cut the grass outside and go up and down on our stairs.
He started partial Budwig protocol along with other supplements shortly after hospital, (Feb 2006) but it could not be implemented 100% because his inability to eat, vomiting and being just too sick. In time, he started to get better and better and his report from Mayo on May 2006 was very encouraging. (according with Pulmonary doctor, by that time Cony was supposed to be dead or almost there).
Right now, his cancer is almost gone. Friends and neighbors, look at him and can’t believe it. There are no evident signs of his Amyloidosis disease in lungs. His oxygen level is normal and his breathing capability is normal. Although both of these diseases are very aggressive and the life span estimated by the doctors is very short, we have big hopes for the future. We already are ahead.. with about 1 year from doctor prediction.
