I am 63, on Lenalidomide chemo to reduce leaky platelets for myeloma which affects bone marrow. The haematologist prescribes Puricos (Zyloprim) to counter the raised acid levels as the chemo kills of platelets.
Is homeopathic support practical?
Can I stop the Puricos which I assess is the cause of unpleasant physical ( ankle swelling, skin rash and sores) and concentration side effects (yes, more than the usual chemo fog). Symptoms that are or which I believe are not related to the chemo.
My reading and my father’s experience after years on Puricos is that it actually puts strain on the kidneys.
I would rather drink more water, eat with more focus and pursue homeopathic support – than persist with Puricos
I have had little or no gout symptoms during 7 months of chemo, but have been taking the Puricos during those 7 months
