New resolve

I've been doing more reading on Dr. BB's work (almost slipped up and used his full name...although who am I kidding, anybody who does a google search on Myeloma will probably know who this is). I came across a person that went through his program recently and I've reached out to correspond with her. I don't know how old she is, what strain of the disease she has/had, etc. but one of the things that struck me was that in her first consult with one of BB's team, that doctor said "there's a 50 percent chance I can cure you." They really believe that it's possible.

I still question why nobody else does. I went back and listened to the recording of my diagnosis where Dr. SH first discusses what to do and I'm struck now by what I've learned and what I would do differently than what Dr. SH initially recommended (in fairness to him, his comments were before the big hematological conference that happened in San Francisco at the beginning of December). One of SH's comments was that nobody can repilicate BB's data and he is accused of selection bias in his patients. But frankly, selection bias doesn't bother me so long as I would be one of the well-responding patients that he selects to prove his protocol works.

I will be visiting him the last week of January and I'll ask him directly why others don't believe in his protocol. Although I note that some other centers, notably one in Utah, do believe in the tandem transplant concept.

I continue to feel that given my age, this may be the way to go. We'll see.

In any case, today is a little more hopeful than yesterday, which is welcome.

  1. Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
    My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
    My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
    My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .
