Nov 27, 2018 · Vitamin C for cancer treatment in Cancer

ProfRoc, I stumbled upon your post today and was encouraged by your information about vitamin c and bladder cancer recurrence. I had successful surgery in July 2010 (age 60) for a T1-G3 high-grade 3 cm bladder tumor and then took the standard BCG treatments with no complications. Soon after my surgery, a friend of mine who was very much into homeopathic treatment suggested several herbs/supplements for me to take to boost my immune system. For the past eight years, at the top of my list have been maitake d-fraction mushroom, astragalus, and milk thistle (all in liquid form). A fourth is cat's claw in capsules. Last December I happened to read about the benefits of sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts and began taking this supplement as well. I have been taking 500 mg of vitamin c 2x a day for several years and now will follow your vitamin c plan. I have a urine cytology done every 3 months, and every sample comes back full of atypical cells. Four times in the past two years, the pathologist has reported "suspicious for malignancy," but follow-up CT scans and cystoscopies have found no cancer. I am a firm believer that all of the herbs and supplements I take, along with BCG treatment, have kept me from having a recurrence of bladder cancer. Do you happen to take any of the herbs/supplements that I have mentioned? David Stiles
