“procedure that could triple a patient’s five-year-survival oddsfrom 5% to 15%albeit with a poor quality of life”
I’m not a doctor but I wouldn’t hang around and go through hell for odds like that. Maybe I was a doctor in another life? More likely I’m just the typical, normal guy.
Same with me. They ever told me I had PC, I would do exactly what this doc did. Go home and wait for the end. I don’t think there is anyone on this planet who has ever survived PC, you get diagnosed with that, they can prolong your life but at what cost? I look at someone like Patrick Swayze who I believe prolonged it by a year, yet near the end the guy weighed about 90 pounds and you can imagine the hell he went through. What amazes me is how many people get this thing, it’s as common as table salt it seems.
One thing to remember in this new age of socialist medicine. Leftists lie in the name of science to advance their agenda. They are doing it with global warming; they will commence doing it with medical care now that they control medical care.
We should stick to what we know from experience of those we trust around us. Don’t blindly follow authority now that it is corrupt. The ideology’s central goal is population reduction - beginning with denial care to elderly and handicapped. They will try to scare and gulit old people into ending their lives.
Stick to what you know.
