I haven't done BRAF but hear side effects aren't as bad as IL-2. I did IL-2 2 different ways…1) it was part of my BioChemo cocktail,…. 2) I did 3 rounds of just IL-2. They let you do IL-2 as long as your responding, so she probably will do 3 rounds and go from there. Side effects.. throwing up, chills/shakes fever, etc… If I remember correctly Janefromaine has a tip sheet that is spot on….you can find her in the search engire above.
As far a food and stuff. I try to eat right, a couple of things have to be organic just cuz a certain checmical company has distroyed the product so it's for sure organic…milk & sugar, …never corn (it doesnt exist) Supplement…Turmeric, COq10 but I am not a freak about any of it. I am waiting for Kombusha to come back in stores at the end of the month. I try to be good and will try to just eat normal….BUT…. Don't ask me about last month when I was on steroids. I was out of control eating, never in my lifetine did I spend so much money on food in one month….geez…thank goodness doc cut me off last wk so now I 'm just dealing with withdrawls….this too shall pass. take good care, love, Sharon in Reno, Stage IV
