Cancer -- An Old Man with Liver Cancer Survived Two More Years

Cancer -- An Old Man with Liver Cancer Survived Two More Years

In May 2007, an 87 year old man was brought in by his son to see me. His son said that his father was suffering from liver cancer. The CT scan showed that there was a heterogeneously enhancing mass in segment 5 and 6 of the liver measuring 9.3 x 10.2 x 8.6 cm and was much larger compared to the previous scan on 18th June 2004 which measured only 2.6 x2.5 cm. The oncologist from Singapore General Hospital did not want to operate on him due to his old age and his heart condition and also his tumours are too big. He also said that his father had only six months to live and advised the family to let him eat whatever he wanted.

His son told me that his father had a very peculiar habit---he did not like to drink plain water. Every day he drank many cups of coffee with many spoons of sugar. He smoked from young and he also liked to eat crabs (when he ate crabs, he must have at least two crabs for himself). The family members did not want to stop him from all these eating habits because they believed that their father had only six months to live. So they let him eat whatever he wanted. This old man had no hypertension and no diabetes.

He was willing to take my medicine because he felt that after taking my medicine, he could go toilet every day. He faithfully took my Chinese medicine every month. On 23rd Nov 2007, six months after the last visit to SGH, the son brought him to see the oncologist for further check up. The oncologist was shocked to see him still looking good. They did a blood screening for him and found that his condition had improved. So he told the family to let him continue with the Chinese medicine.

He continued to take my Chinese medicine faithfully. For one and half years, he still continued to smoke, drank coffee with sugar and ate crabs. He was able to bathe himself, walk, eat, sleep and lead an independent and normal life.

Unfortunately, in March 2009, his eldest son who was very close to him died. He was devastated. He grieved over his son's death and could not eat and sleep well. Thereafter, his health condition deteriorated. He could not control his urine and both his legs were swollen and his appetite was not good. I prescribed him some Chinese medicine to reduce his swelling. His swelling disappeared. He could eat but not a lot. Still, he smoked and drank coffee with lots of sugar and ate crabs. On May 2009, the son brought him to SGH again for check up. They told the oncologist that the old man complained of back pain, blood stains in his stool and his back had a big dark patch. The doctor prescribed some medicine for him.

His condition began to weaken day by day until June 2009. His family members took turn to look after him. Only at this stage, he began to stop smoking and drinking coffee with sugar. His appetite was not good and he was getting weaker. His daughter came to see me and told me that his father was very weak and requested me to see him in their house. I visited him in his house. He could recognize me. I saw that he was not in pain. He could not talk but able to use his hand to show gestures. Two days later, I heard that he passed away peacefully without suffering any pain.

He lived for two more years although his oncologist estimated that he had only six months to live. Strangely, although he took a lot of sugar, he had no diabetes even at the last stage.

His daughter said that if her elder brother had not died and if he had watched his diet, may be he would be able to survive longer.
