please someone help,
someone i know was diagnosed with leukemia. she found out because of her bloodpressure being high and as a result had suffered some heart damage.
she has been told that she cant have surgery for her heart because of the leukemia
what effect will the leukemia have on her heart since she cant have surgery?
what about chemo?
will this effect her prognosis?

  • Dear Uninfomed, Having lost a son to cancer I know that your friend is probably going through that treatment. Doctors want to treat one problem at a time. If the heart problem is not in jeopardy of causing death the doctors want to do one thing at a time. For your friends cancer, I have just posted on this forum under"Help for a small child" -KaisasMommy. Curing cancer starts with the diet. I have outlined what I do for myself as they have just found 5 spots in my lung. Diet(the right kind that detoxs your body of all the crab that is in our food) is the place to start. Take a look at that post. Also take a look at my sons website:http://www.bradkimball.comKeeping The Promise,Linda KimballBrad's Ma and Champion
