Mom with Multiple Myeloma
Ted, I understand you have a very busy schedule and that you might not be able to reply soon. Still i am keeping my hopes high and fingers crossed that you will be able to help me in quest for finding some relief for my mom. She was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in march this year which has lesions in one of the ribs, femur bone and neck bone. She had surgery to stabilize her neck. Ever since then she has 5 sittings of radiation and also since then she is on no sugar, no milk, no artificial flavors, preservative free diet. We also started her on essiac tea, beta glucan, flax seed oil and cottage cheese mix, mutivitamins, green tea and barley leaf extract, lysine, proline. She has not undergone any chemo. However, from 8 march to 8 april, she lost 10 kgs (76 to 65 kgs). Then her weight was stable for 2 months and now she has lost 3 more kgs. She has very persistent nausea. She feels hungry, sleeps well. But its the nausea which is making her life miserable and she is not able to eat. What should i do to help her with nausea and to control weight loss. She does not have any other pains except stiff neck from surgery. Please advise, I cannot see her suffer anymore. She is 57 yrs old. Her BP used to be high but in control for last 4 months. We are also giving her fresh juice of beets+ carrots+celery everyday.
