I saw my oncologist today for my three month followup. I've lost 12 pounds since he saw me last, and my blood pressure is so low I've gone off diltiazam and without the drug it's still lower than its been in years. I told him about it, and how healthy I feel. He's very supportive, and even had heard some of the research about meat-based diets and their impact on cancer, blood pressure, cholesterol, and so forth. He'll test my cholesterol next time I'm in, in hopes that that has lowered too.
I know that some folks don't get support from medical personnel on becoming vegetarian, so I'm really thrilled that my oncologist "gets it."
I feel fabulous!!!
