HI BRENDA. I RECENTLY WAS ABLE TO OBTAIN A PRESCRIPTION FOR MY MOM FOR LDN. SHE WAS DX'D WITH STAGE 4 LUNG CANCER. SHE WAS ON MORPHINE FOR PAIN AND WAS GIVEN CHEMOTHERAPY (ALTIMA) ON SEPT 15. SHE STOPPED ALL PAIN MEDS ABOUT 10 DAYS AGO. SHE IS NO LONGER IN PAIN. I STARTED HER ON LDN LAST TUES THE 23RD. MY QUESTIONS ARE, HOW LONG SHOULD IT BE THAT WE WILL SEE IMPROVEMENT IF THE LDN IS WORKING, I ALSO ORDERED THE CHERRY TART PILLS AND STARTED AT THE SAME TIME. IM A LITTLE WORRIED BECAUSE SHE SEEMS TO BE GETTING WORSE SINCE SHE BEGAN TAKING LDN. I GOT IT FROM IRMAT WHO IS RELIABLE. IS IS POSSIBLE THAT IT IS BEING BLOCKED FROM THE CHEMO OR FROM ANTIBIOTICS,(SHE HAS AN INFECTED GALL BLADDER FROM STONES?) I APPRECIATE YOUR INPUT AND DEDICATION TO THIS BOARD.
Dr. Bihari told my mom that the effects of LDN is generally wiped out by strong chemo's. I doubt the LDN can do much while she is on chemo. The biggest thing she needs to do is eliminate all sugar from her diet. I would email Dr. Burton Berkson about her case. He deals with many with cancer and he can give her a diet to follow and suggest supplements.
