As to the article above ... if you can find something in a peer reviewed journal to study, that would be great. But that article is not documented. In fact, it's written by someone named Amy. And that's all the documentation given.

Mardicoweng ... you might start your own thread. Is it possible for you to travel out of Indonesia and if so, where?

I have heard of this treatment it is being done in the uk at the moment. My daughter is hopefully having this soon. I will keep you all updated with how this goes as everything i have read and researched on this sounds really promising. Have a look at the link above.

Many thanks

Thank you for the link!

I know bleomycin is a schlerosing agent, but haven't read a ton about it. Let us know how things turn out!

Default Thanks for the replies

Hi Missy,

If I find another article or supporting material about this treatment, I will also add here. But within a month, I read 2 articles about this treatment and just wanted to find out if there were any one in the forum aware of this option.

I am happy to hear MYLITTLEPUDDIN's daughter will try this new treatment and looking forward to results and updates.

Thanks again.
