Further reading on what makes a good end of life | TED Blog

A few books recommendation here.

But in kino or most bookstore also have, u can just go to the section. There are many books. Got buddhist one, got taoist one, got christian one, got non-religion also, got general one also. Choose a few which suit his religion/belief/style.

i'm not sure abt what he's covered for as these are handled by my mom.. she'd been a financial advisor for more than a decade, thus i guess she'd know best. But from what i know... the maximum that is claimable for dad is only up to $30,000. Reason being, dad has a history of medical conditions.. e.g. diabetes, high blood pressure etc. Therefore his coverage is pretty limited.
learn about it, u will need the knowledge next time, and seriously, it helps. i pick up all these things after i started looking after my mom as my dad getting old too.

when u young, parents took care of u when u were sick. time to pay back.

chemo can't help much already..

apparently ttsh suggested to go for TACE... to shrink the 6cm tumor on one side and then operate. but the thing is the other side already spread.. to vessel and lymph nodes.. so Mount E doc says instead of spending the money on chemo... go for the trials.. let them test the new medications... maybe it might help...
think can ask the new med what are the side effects lor. as in how bad, before deciding.

as he had a history of medical conditions, he is required to go for routine checks every now and then.

went for blood test in sep, results were apparently normal.

Blood test again in Dec... and results were bad.. went for further tests and found out abt the cancer...

seriously.. 3 months could make that much difference?

Liver cancer is a silent killer.

The thing is the only symptoms seems to be some aching or backache.. and then lost of appetite and weight.

Must have strong determination to live. Mental health and strength is utmosy important at this juncture.

Rast time cannabis is used in TCM to treat cancer..

Nowadays, TCM is quite useless without cannabis.. Just prolong the life nia..

But u can try..

I heard TCM practise is sorta encourage in SG because LHL that time almost died from cancer till he tried TCM treatment as well..

Just need to find a good one I guess..

Good luck to TS dad~

can try Curcumin.

GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized Turmeric Curcumin - GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED - GNC

Go read up on curcumin.

my dog was 15+ years old, almost dying becos the vet said she has a lump or tumor behind her back. Bo bian, so old liow, operate also no use. So I go buy curcumin and gave her quite a high dose for a few weeks. And she is getting her appetite back and becoming fat again. Now almost 1 year . 16+ years old liow.

I really think curcumin helps. Give ur dad high dose everyday for a few weeks and see how. No side effect as curcumin is yellow ginger.

I heard Curcumin is excellent in anti-oxidant properties and it is good are preventing cancer and especially good for liver.

Bring your dad to a place where you know where to find him after death bro.

My mum died from metastatic stage 4 cancer. We found peace.

yes.. I tried it on my dog and it works.

I later try it on myself and it works. Not convenient to reveal what I had but TS please trust me. Give ur dad HIGH dose of curcumin for a few weeks and see how.

No harm trying becos there is no side effect. is just concentrated yellow ginger.
