Transplant Tales: to China and back

Sunday, August 06, 2006

146 A.T.

Eric is getting ready to go back to Santa Barbara for his last week of treatment. He has lost about 10lbs since he started. He looks better than ever.

The treatment consists of receiving vitamins and minerals interveniously, Organic menu and absolutely no sugars!! He is also receiving Heyperberic treatments which consists of laying in a pressurized tank and receiving oxygen, to oxygenate his cells. Another treatment he does is the Therma Bed, which heats his body to appoximately 165 degrees by UV. This is to create an environment too hot for bacteria to live in. This is all done once a day for one hour.
Throughout this treatment Eric does routine coffee enemas and weekly colonics, recommended for anyone you think is full of crap!

He has altered his habits tremendously. We are all eating healthier due to this. The key objective was to rebalance and detoxify your body and allow it to naturally fight as it is meant to.

After this last week of treatment Eric will get a CT scan of the lungs and we will see if there has been any positive effect. The Hep C is still there and we'll check on that as well.

Thanks for posting. Eric is in our prayers. Yes, it's a challenge to change lifestyle habits!
Before reading your latest update, I'd just read an article on Pub Med about remission of lung mets after liver transplantation using sirolimus and mycophenolate mofetil (April 2005). It's info to add to the possibilities file.

Dear Lori and Eric

I am an Australian journalist who has been researching a story on organ transplants in China. For the past four weeks I have been searching for someone from a Western country who has actually had a transplant in China and can tell their story. I finally found you on this blog! I appreciate that you have carefully and articulately expressed your journey through the whole process and wanted to know if it would be possible to have a chat with you over the phone?

My email address is or and

Looking forward to hearing from you.

By the way when do you expect your book to be published?

Best wishes
Kylie Grey

Dear Lori and Eric:

Thanks very much for the web blogging. Like Eric, my mom also has Hep C and primary liver tumor. We are Chinese, and my mom is actually in Shanghai. However, her doctors is recommending against liver transplant, saying that her cirrholis, ascites, and jaundice are complicating the situation. I would like to know which hospital in Shanghai you went to. It doesn't seem the same hospital where my mom is receiving treatment. If you don't mind, may I ask if Eric only had Hep C prior to the tumor, or Eric's conditions were pretty much like my mom's. My email address is
Thank you so much, and I wish a full recovery for Eric!
