I was diagnosed with a soft tissue sarcoma when i was 16. it was sitting on my spleen just under my lef rib cage. i went for my first operation 3 days after my 16th birthday and a post op scan revealed that there was still cancer in the are. so a couple of days after the first i underwent another operation removing the entire left side of my abdominal wall from rib to groin. replacing the muscle with a plastic material. after the operation a specialist recommended radiotherapy, saying ill probably end up with bowel adehesions a colostomy bag and a recurrence before i was 21 and fatality before thirty. i said no to there "modern medicines" and opted for b12 vitamins from apricot kernels. im now 21, completely cancer free and am extremely grateful for the new perspective that the whole ordeal gave me on life.
