Facing Stage IV Colorectal Cancer, I Refuse Surgery

"Doctors in Indonesia and Malaysia all suggested same option-taking surgery, which cause difficulty in defecating and I have to carry the bag for it all the time. I resolutely refused the suggestion. Fortunately, I got different answer in St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou and minimally invasive treatment helped me avoid suffering from surgery.” HENDRY ANGGLE said joyfully.

In Indonesia and Malaysia, doctors all suggested me take surgery

HENDRY ANGGLES comes from Surabaya, Indonesia. In July, 2016, he suffered symptoms of hematochezia, diarrhea and difficulties in defecating with no reason. At first, he just thought it was hemorrhoid, but his condition was getting worse instead. After taking enteroscopy, he was diagnosed as stage IV colorectal cancer with a 2cm tumor near the anus. He was grieved and afraid knowing the result. As cancer is not in his family history and he always keeps good habit. What’s worse, doctors in Indonesia and Malaysia all suggested him take surgery. On account of bad influence including difficulty in defecating, he refused the option.

Back home, HENDRY followed friend’s suggestion of treating colorectal cancer with herbal medicine. However, his condition did not gradually improve as he expected. On the contrary, from July 2017, symptoms of anal pain, difficulty in urinating occurred, blood in the stool became more serious, which made him and his family anxious.

Surgery is not the only method to treat colorectal cancer

By chance, HENDRY’s son learned from the internet that, besides surgical resection, minimally invasive therapy can be adopted in treating colorectal cancer.

To avoid suffering from surgery and chemotherapy, minimally invasive therapy minimizes pain and side effects and helps colorectal cancer patients yield better results.

HENDRY and his family were happy about having the opportunity. “Through the address we obtained on website, we came to the hospital’s branch office in Indonesia. When I learnd that patient, whose condition was worse than mine, were treated with minimally invasive treatment and achieved good efficacy. My family supported me to grasp the chance.”HENDRY said.

HENDRY and his attending doctor, Hu Ying

In Nov. 2017, HENDRY, accompanied by his family, arrived at St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. Upon the admission, his tumor measures about 8*10cm. because HENDRY was tortured by bloody stool and anal pain. He can't even lie down and the quality of sleep was also greatly affected.

Based on his condition, Multidisciplinary Team came up with a treatment plan including interventional therapy, particle implantation and natural therapy. According to his attending doctor, “he was in advanced stage and refused to take surgery. During interventional therapy, with a 1-2 millimeter incision on femoral artery, anticancer drugs are directly injected into the tumor without damage to normal cells. The concentration of drugs is 8-10 times higher than common drugs. In brief, interventional therapy is safer, more effective and causes fewer side effects. Particle implantation aims at radically kill local masses. Combined minimally invasive therapy enhances patient’s immunity, prolongs survival and improves long-term effects.

I didn’t suffer any pain in the first session of interventional therapy. After the treatment, my condition was obviously getting better. I was able to lie down and had good sleep quality. After the first discharge, my tumor has shrunk by 50%. Previous symptoms of blood in stool and anal pain disappeared. In the second discharge, I felt like normal as usual."

Warming tips:

1. Once blood in stool found, take timely checkup in hospital, colorectal cancer was easily misdiagnosed as hemorrhoid and found in late stage.

2. Colorectal cancer tends to have much higher morbidity among young people. Despite from heredity and diet, pressure is also a main risk factor. If colorectal cancer has occurred in your family history, one should take checkup since 35.

How We Treat Cancer?

Interventional Therapy

Interventional Therapy is a new substitute of traditional chemotherapy, which means that a physician introduces instruments such as needles or catheters (long, thin tubes) into the body through tiny(1-2 mm) incisions in the skin. The instruments are then guided by an imaging technique called fluoroscopy to the cancer tumor. In this way, the physician can deliver cancer medicine directly to the tumor.more info

Cryotherapy Therapy

Cryotherapy Therapy, also known as “Argon-Helium Knife Cryotherapy”, is a new substitute of traditional physical therapy. Practically speaking it is “extreme cold + extreme heat” cancer treatment. Generally, a minimum of 10-15 minutes is required to achieve an extreme analgesic (pain relieving) effect while lowering the temperature to the injured area, thus reducing the metabolic rate and swelling associated with tissue injury.more info

Particle Knife

Particle Knife is a new substitute of traditional radiation therapy. With the help of computer Treatment Planning System (TPS), radioactive particles will be implanted into tumors. The particles which release γ-rays can continuously kill tumor and cause destruction targeting tumor cells. With time, the radiation amount would accumulate to be large enough to destroy the DNA double strands of tumor cells.more info
