I don’t claim to understand how it works. What I do know is that since seeing him last fall, the tumors in my lungs have disappeared. My oncologist claims it’s the chemo. My mother claims it’s prayer. But maybe it’s a combination of everything, so I saw Rene Grieder again last week.
I was impressed on my first visit when Rene told me that I had bacteria in my right jaw, without me telling him that I have TMJ (temporomandibular joint) problems. During my most recent visit, he said that my pancreas is not healthy. I hadn’t told him that I went to emergency after my first chemo treatment with a pancreatitis attack.
I did tell him about the swollen lymph nodes in my chest wall and he said that my lymphatic system was stressed and spent a good part of the 2 hour visit working at unblocking it. I have a CT scan scheduled for next week. It will be interesting to see if the size of the swollen lymph nodes has changed since my last scan.
