Update 5 February, 2015: please note that I have been receiving reports from patients that Hallwang Clinic’s services are not meeting expectations and Grace Gawler no longer runs Medi-Tours to Hallwang. Therefore, before you go to Hallwang, please get it in writing that the oncologist and Prof Vogl will be there throughout your stay.
I am not if stubborn (or naive). I knew that the tumour had to come out, yet I was terrified of surgery. And I was annoyed with myself for having allowed the tumour to progress and grow. I wanted a better surgical outcome.
The complementary therapy clinics in the UK had not, so far, been able to offer me a satisfactory solution – I did not want to waste the rest of my life living with a tumour.
So I decided to look into the treatment of cancer in overseas clinics to see if they could offer me a better surgical outcome – to shrink the tumour and the lymph nodes and to get clear margins. Also, I wanted if possible, to save the nipple.
