Seeing the name TT Fields brings to mind a number of literary greats, such as TS Eliot, JC Oates etcetera. However, TTfields stands for Tumour Treatment Fields, which is the name given to the treatment strategy that I am currently subjected to.
The method disturbs cell division in cancer cells by preventing the organisation of DNA with oscillating electromagnetic fields. [A more detailed explanation is available, but I think that it would serve no purpose at the moment.] According to a number of reports and the conclusions of an FDA-roundtable the method improves survivability for patients in my predicament. As mentioned in earlier posts, I already have a number of factors which may give me a more favourable outcome. Hopefully this treatment will improve my prospects even more.
For the treatment, I have to wear a set of electrodes over my head. The electrodes are connected to a battery which generates the oscillating fields. The system has to be in use as much as possible for as long as possible – we are looking at a treatment period of about two years. During this time the electrodes have to be changed every two to three days, full head shaving included.
With all this high-tech equipment, I think that I will be easily traced should I go missing. Unfortunately, the system does not offer direct connection to 5G networks.
At the same time as this treatment is going on, I am on a new course of cytostatics. This time, it is on a four-week cycle, with pills for five days (double dose compared with previously), followed by a break for the rest of the period. If all goes according to plan, I will repeat this cycle at least six times, after which it will be a case of wait and see how things develop.
