Mama Eden had a gall bladder removal Aug, 2018 and was able to recover quickly. Diagnostic tests didn't see anything suspicious in her right breast where she can feel a hard unnoticeable lump. It was recommended for observation.
As soon as January 2019, she noticed that her right breast is getting bigger but she can't feel any pain in it. She started to see the doctors again and underwent laboratory and diagnostic examinations. Her hip pain started to be constant.
The 2 biopsy results showed the rapidly growing right breast mass was benign(negative from cancer) so she was scheduled for the surgery to remove the breast mass before it develops into a bad tumor. Lower back/hips has movable cysts. When the surgeon opened Mama Eden's breast, he was surprised to see that the mass was hiding under the breast tissues. It was a tumor growing from the bones. The surgeon decided to close the wound without removing the tumor, suspecting that it has reached within the rib cage.
Hip pain got worst. As days gone by, she can't sit or stand anymore. She was in a consistent extreme pain.
CT scan imaging was performed on her chest and hips, confirming the chest mass to be extending inside the ribs and hips have cysts and damages too. Bones are brittle and and prone to breakage. 3rd biopsy was guided by a CT scan for better projection on getting the right specimen. The result was indefinite, even the review result from the best performing hospital was unclear. Thus, doctors can't recommend the right treatment plan since they don't know what to treat.
Her hemoglobin keeps on dropping down even after blood transfusion. Pneumonia and other deficiencies were encountered.
A 2nd CT guide biopsy executed. After a multiple tests on the specimen, all the symptoms and results lead that Mama Eden's case was MULTIPLE MYELOMA, a kind of cancer of the blood. It's an abnormality of the plasma cell(a kind of white blood cells). The abnormal cells accumulates in the bone marrow that forms tumor/s in the bones.
Afterall the medications and long process of discovering the kind of cancer Mama Eden has, we are already exhausted of the hospital bills, medicine charges, and other expenses. Doctors advised Mama Eden to go through a 6 month- CHEMOTHERAPY as soon as possible, but we can't afford the P180,000+ treatment per month. We have no more resources to fund her medications.
