YULIA: I Refuse to Take Surgery for My Cancer

"Anticancer trip is hard and you should be strong!" ----YULIA FATMAWATI

YULIA FATMAWATI used to have a fast-pace life in Jarkata. It took her 2 to 3 hours a day on commuting. Every day she was stressful with a heavy task so she drank a little water and took little exercises. It may be just the trifles but they could be the leading cause of her cancer.

In 2015, YULIA FATMAWATI showed the symptom of uremic bleeding. She took check-up in Indonesia and the doctor diagnosed it was urinary tract infection. Though she took medicines, her symptom was not alleviated. After taking a further check-up again, doctor found that there were stones in the bladder and suggested her take laser surgery first. However, the symptom had not been changed. Thus, doctor decided to take operation for her.

What surprised her was that there was 14-cm tumor in her bladder. After taking the biopsy, she was diagnosed with bladder cancer. The local doctor suggested her taking surgery to remove the whole bladder but she needed to life with artificial urine bag in her rest of life. Due to the fear of taking surgery, she refused doctor’s suggestion.

She sought for other cancer options on the Internet, and she found Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. The minimally invasive technologies in Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou deeply attracted her attention. She knew that minimally invasive treatment will not bring a big trauma to the body, only 2mm trauma, which will bring fewer side effects than conventional radiotherapy and chemotherapy. A friend of YULIA FATMAWATI also took cancer treatment in Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou and has got a good therapeutic effect so she recommended this hospital to YULIA FATMAWATI. Thus, YULIA FATMAWATI decided to take treatment in Guangzhou, China.

With the company of her husband, she was hospitalized in Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou in December, 2015. After the diagnosis and discussion of multidisciplinary team (MDT), they made a plan of “interventional therapy+ cryotherapy+ biological immunotherapy”. She had not heard about interventional therapy before. So, when taking interventional therapy at the first time, she felt scared and worried. However, after the treatment, all her worry and concern were removed and she gradually built confidence to the treatment. She told us that she saw hope when she felt desperate.

So far, YULIA FATMAWATI has taken 5 sessions of interventional therapy, two sessions of cryotherapy and one session of biological immunotherapy. During the treatment, her tumor has shrunk from 14 cm to 8 cm. The attending doctor of YULIA FATMAWATI told us that her condition has been well improved and she still continues to take treatment. Hope her tumor will be shrunk more. Let us wait for another anticancer miracle!

During the anticancer experience, she once cried every day and night but minimally invasive treatment made her see hope and build confidence. She also encouraged other cancer patients to be positive to the treatment and people should also pay more attention to the daily routine, drinking more water and taking regular exercise to prevent cancer.

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
