Hi,

GRUELLING BATTLE 

Legendary broadcaster James Whale reveals he’s fighting cancer of the brain, spine, kidney and lungs

PIONEERING radio broadcaster James Whale has cancer of the kidney, spine, brain and lungs.

The talkRADIO star tells today how he considered going to Dignitas when he was first given the devastating news a fortnight ago.

But now he has vowed to fight the disease so he can return to the airwaves.

The diagnosis is a devastating blow for James, coming just two years after his beloved wife Melinda died of lung cancer and 20 years after he had one kidney removed because of a tumour.

In an exclusive interview, the 69-year-old bravely reveals: “This little bastard has spread. It’s in my remaining kidney. I’ve got a couple of small lesions in my lungs. I’ve got it in my spine. I’ve got it in my brain.”

James is one of the UK’s leading radio broadcasters. His late-night series, the James Whale Radio Show, which was broadcast live simultaneously on Radio Aire in Leeds and ITV in the 1980s, made the genre famous.

He spent 13 years presenting weeknights on talkSPORT from 1995 before moving onto a drivetime show on LBC broadcasting every weekday for four years, sparking a huge ratings rise.

He now hosts between 7pm and 10pm on News UK’s booming station talkRADIO alongside long-time co-host Ash Gould.

The 2016 Celebrity Big Brother star had been feeling unwell for about a year.

But he was prompted into taking action when he started forgetting names on air while presenting his popular nightly radio show.

Blood tests showed he had very low sodium levels, so he was referred to a haematologist.

Recalling being told the diagnosis two weeks ago, James says: “The woman looked worried and she said ‘I’m so sorry. I’ve got really, really bad news for you. I’m afraid 20 years ago you had kidney cancer. Well, it looks like it’s probably come back. You’ve got a tumour on your kidney.’

“And I thought, ‘OK, well, 20 years later I’ll have to do all over again.’ And then she said, ‘I’m sorry. Sadly it’s spread. You’ve got small lesions in your brain and your lung, in your spine, in your pituitary gland.’”

James’ immediate reaction, driven by shock and trauma, was to consider euthanasia.

“I came home, had a little think about things. I decided I’m just booking myself a trip to Dignitas. You might as well just go and get it over with,” he says in his trademark brutally honest style.

“I’d looked into it quite some time ago because Melinda died two years ago and it’s been something in the back of my mind.”

But James was supported by his son, also James, to seek help from the charity Kidney Cancer UK that he set up after his first battle with the disease in 2000.

His treatment has been guided by Professor Thomas Powles, director of London’s Barts Cancer Centre where he is lead for solid tumour research.

James says: “I went to his office and he told me: ‘I think you can put off your trip to Dignitas for a little while.’”

He had a biopsy last week and its results will help determine a prognosis, but he is already on immunotherapy and hormone replacement treatment which has transformed his way of life.

RETURNING TO WORK

He explains: “I’ve had a tumour on my pituitary gland, which has altered all my hormones. So, for the past few months, the sight of food made me feel sick.

“I suddenly looked in the mirror and I saw my granddad. I thought all my face had got sunken in, I’d gone grey.

“I haven’t got a proper prognosis yet because it’s very early days, but this immunotherapy is a very new way of treating cancer — it gets the immune system to attack the tumours.

“I’m probably going to be on tablets for the rest of my life but I’ve gone from being like a little shrunken, old man in the chair who’s not eating and could hardly walk up the stairs, to where I can run upstairs.”

James hopes the treatment will work, while allowing him to return to work by avoiding chemotherapy.

He says: “The pills should shrink the tumours until they hopefully disappear.

But now he has vowed to fight the disease, saying 'I've got a few more programmes in me'

“It doesn’t work for everybody, but some people have been on their deathbeds then given this treatment and a couple of days later they’re up digging their gardens. I’m pretty sure I will be back on air very, very soon.”

The experience has made James — a loyal and caring friend, beloved by his colleagues — think about his mortality and there have been incredibly difficult moments.

“Have no doubt, it’s a shock and you’ll sit in a corner on your own and you’ll cry. I do quite a bit now on my own,” he admits.

“But I have no intention of dying right at this particular moment. I’ve got a few more programmes in me that I need to do, including more TV.

James says 'if I live another ten years, I’d be quite happy'

“I am pretty strong. I’m determined not to allow this to really undermine me.

“I’m coming up to being the oldest working man on British radio and I have continually been on air since I was 24.

“Next year I’m 70, so if I live another ten years, I’d be quite happy.”

Hi,

MAY 27, 2020 8:00 AM EDT

Dr. Jane C. Burns has studied Kawasaki disease for four decades. It took only four months for COVID-19 to turn her life’s work upside down.

Unusual numbers of children and teenagers living in COVID-19 hotspots like Lombardy, Italy and New York City have developed an inflammatory condition (officially called Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children, or MIS-C) that looks a lot like Kawasaki disease. In many cases, the children have also tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies, suggesting the syndrome followed a viral infection.

In New York State, 170 inflammatory-disease cases and three related deaths are under investigation. Ninety-two percent of these patients tested positive for COVID-19 or its antibodies, and almost all of them were younger than 20, according to state health department data. As case reports pile up, the world is suddenly paying attention to the rare pediatric syndrome that has stumped Burns and her colleagues for decades, but largely flown under the radar.

“I’ve been waiting 40 years to understand in a much clearer way what I’ve been looking at all my life,” says Burns, who directs the Kawasaki Disease Research Center at the University of California, San Diego and Rady Children’s Hospital. “It’s a tragedy to realize that this virus that we thought was going to spare our most vulnerable citizens—our children—is not. But it has suddenly presented the opportunity to actually understand Kawasaki disease.”

Kawasaki disease is a mystery

Kawasaki disease has a well-defined set of symptoms, including a persistent high fever, bloodshot eyes, redness around the mouth, a body rash and redness and swelling of the feet and hands. Only a few thousands cases of Kawasaki are diagnosed each year in the U.S., mainly in children ages 5 and younger.

In part because of its rarity, doctors still don’t know exactly what causes Kawasaki disease—but the dominant theory is that a pathogen, most likely a virus, pushes a child’s immune system into overdrive, resulting in inflammation throughout the body. This inflammation can be successfully brought down with the antibody-based treatment intravenous immunoglobulin, but when left untreated, it can lead to permanent heart damage.

Burns thinks Kawasaki disease’s name may have done it a disservice. When it was first discovered in the 1960s, the condition was named Kawasaki “disease” instead of Kawasaki “syndrome,” and that designation has stuck. But a “disease” is something with a determinate cause, whereas a “syndrome” is a collection of symptoms that may not have a single catalyst—which far better characterizes Kawasaki, Burns believes. “Calling it a disease made us think that…there could only be one cause or trigger,” Burns says.

More recently, she says, doctors have begun to question that notion. Her research center has found that Kawasaki disease tends to surface in clusters of genetically similar children, and the disease can look slightly different depending on the group’s underlying genetics. That suggests different triggers could cause an inflammatory response in children with certain genetic predispositions, Burns says. It’s possible that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is one of those triggers.

But some researchers don’t think viruses are always to blame. Dr. Michael Levin, a pediatric infectious disease specialist at Imperial College London, says bacteria may also trigger the inflammatory response. When clinicians test a nose or throat swab, Levin says, they look for known pathogens. But millions of bacterial strains live in the body, and most aren’t given a second look in the laboratory. “I think the cause of Kawasaki has been sitting in the bin because we don’t know how to identify it,” Levin says.

Not knowing exactly what causes Kawasaki also makes it difficult to diagnose, says Dr. Michael Portman, director of pediatric cardiovascular research at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Doctors have to rely on inflammatory markers in the blood, as well observable symptoms, to make a subjective call. Portman is working with blood-testing startup Prevencio to develop a blood test that could detect certain proteins and blood components to give a firm Kawasaki diagnosis. Having a cut-and-dry diagnostic would make it easier for doctors to find the right treatment for patients, Portman says. It could also help answer a question confounding researchers: Is MIS-C a type of Kawasaki syndrome, or something else entirely?

Kawasaki disease’s connection to COVID-19

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, a few papers had suggested other coronaviruses could cause Kawasaki disease. So when the pandemic hit, Portman expected to see an uptick in Kawasaki-like inflammatory disease, he says.

But some researchers don’t think SARS-CoV-2 has any connection to Kawasaki disease. That’s because MIS-C and Kawasaki have some clear and crucial differences.

Whereas Kawasaki disease is treatable and only leads to significant heart damage in about 25% of cases even when it’s left alone, many MIS-C patients suffer such serious damage to the heart that they go into shock. Others don’t have external symptoms of Kawasaki, but do have a high fever and elevated inflammatory markers. Teenagers and young adults have also been showing up in hospitals with MIS-C, whereas Kawasaki almost exclusively strikes children five and younger.

Burns says it’s possible that SARS-CoV-2 affects Kawasaki-prone children differently, depending on their unique genetic blueprints. Some could clear a SARS-CoV-2 infection without any inflammatory response. Others could go on to develop Kawasaki-like illness, while still others might exhibit an inflammatory response slightly different than Kawasaki disease. Burn has applied for a National Institutes of Health grant that would allow her to perform whole genome sequencing on children with different types of MIS-C, as well as children who were diagnosed with Kawasaki disease before the COVID-19 pandemic, to find differences and similarities.

But Levin isn’t sure there’s enough similarity to consider MIS-C a relative of Kawasaki.

Using data from Burns’ database of pre-COVID-19 Kawasaki patients, Levin compared classic Kawasaki with emerging clinical and laboratory reports of MIS-C. Given the high likelihood that MIS-C results in much more severe symptoms than the typical case of Kawasaki, “the overall spectrum is more different to Kawaski than similar to Kawasaki,” he concludes.

He notes that adults with serious cases of COVID-19 are also seeing extreme inflammatory responses; they just manifest differently, causing issues like respiratory distress. It’s possible that MIS-C is the pediatric version of that inflammation, he says.

Portman says he’s not sure it matters whether MIS-C is a subset of Kawasaki or its own syndrome, since they both seem to respond to the same treatment. “My general opinion is that we may have to morph these two diseases into one and just give them subclassifications,” he says.

Both Portman and Levin are working on gathering the data necessary to figure out how best to treat Kawasaki and MIS-C. Levin is launching a database that will allow clinicians to upload anonymous case details and treatment results until more rigorous randomized control trials can be completed, and Portman has been awarded a research grant to study differences in patients who respond to intravenous immunoglobulin versus those who don’t.

What parents need to know

For scared parents, it can be frightening to know that researchers are still working to understand both Kawasaki disease and MIS-C. But all of the experts interviewed by TIME say parents do not need to panic.

Kids are still much less likely than adults to develop a serious COVID-19 infection. Only about 2% of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the U.S. have been among children younger than 18, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even among kids who do get COVID-19, MIS-C is a very rare complication. About 170 MIS-C cases are under investigation in New York state, compared to thousands of pediatric COVID-19 cases there, and many parts of the country have yet to see a case.

Nevertheless, parents should not wait to seek medical attention if they see any symptoms of Kawasaki disease in their children, Burns says. With prompt treatment, most children should recover well, she says.

Hi,

From Paul Starling’s Facebook…   January 15th, 2020.

CANCER:

In the early hours of this morning I posted two things about cancer.   Within a few hours I’d deleted them.
I have re-considered (‘slept on it’, NOT!)
As I start writing this,  it is 11am.  Another, bloody, sleepless night.  That is one of the known effects of ‘surviving cancer’.
There are others.  In the cool light of day I’ve decided to open up, again, about this subject.  This time I will take the courage to ‘put it out there’, and leave it there, among you, despite my fears that you or others might misread my motives.
I am going to be open and honest with you, in the hope that it may help you understand better.
Oh yes, it is going to be therapeutic for me … but I’ve concluded it might also be therapeutic for you too.
Tomorrow I’m going to go to a specialist cancer unit. It provides support for those going through cancer but, also, as I discovered in the early hours of this morning, it is there for people who ‘survive cancer’.
What a revelation!
There’s me thinking that I should just shut up and suffer in silence.
For, after all, I survived the bloody cancer.
Wrong!
Surviving, not dying from, cancer brings ‘issues’ all of its own – as I discovered in the dark hours of this morning.
Many of you and others have asked me “how are you”?    
“I’m fine”, is my stock response, (for, after all, I am alive and, being British, should stiffen my lip, stiffen my sinews, and ‘keep on buggering on’ as Churchill was fond of saying to the men who were actually on the front line putting their lives at risk!)
NO.
I’ve reached the conclusion that it is better to tell you, and me, the truth.  That, I’ve decided, is healthier.
Oh, yes, I can keep CONTROL of the situation, you, and others, by pretending.  That empowers me, but disempowers you!
So …  NO.
I am not alright. And, by being honest, it sort of releases you to be honest, too.
This is the third cancer operation I have survived.  It has taken me all this time to be open and admit the truth, to my self, and you. (Bloody hell, my first cancer operation was 20 years ago! How dull and slow are we, in Britain, with this ‘soldiering on’, stiff upper lip stuff).
Now, don’t get me wrong.
I loathe self pity, and/or wallowing in weakness.
But. I come back to it, it takes greater strength and courage to face and tell the truth, rather than hide, and lie.  
Letting go, in this way, helps you, and others, to understand.
SO.
When I, finally, seek the support of others, at that hospital cancer unit tomorrow, I’ll be open, and tell the truth.
I will say that I am anxious, bordering on depressed. I am not sleeping, am isolating my self, and find the smallest task an impossible mountain to climb. I will, also, say that I am angry about the cumulative effect of so many operations (and the bloody suffering). That, in my silent rage, I have shut myself away from the world. And I could do with talking with the psychotherapist there, about these things.
This, I realised, in the early hours of this morning, takes REAL strength.
THIS is the healthier approach.
It will help me.
I think it will help you, too.
Hence my reason for writing this.

Paul Starling.

Hi,

Gradual Heart Attacks ‘Not Taken Seriously’ – Here Are The Symptoms

They’re just as common as sudden heart attacks, one study suggests. But people aren’t seeking urgent help.

If you heard the words ‘heart attack’, you’d be forgiven for picturing someone collapsing on the ground while clutching their chest, like you see on TV.

But while some heart attacks can be sudden, there are also a number that come on gradually – and people don’t necessarily know about them.

Heart attack symptoms that occur over a period of hours are often “not taken seriously”, one researcher has said, which could prove life-threatening.

A 2019 study published in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing revealed patients with gradual symptoms took eight hours to get medical help compared to those with abrupt symptoms, who took 2.6 hours.

A maximum delay of two hours is recommended to get fast treatment and the best outcomes for health. Delays of more than two hours are likely to end in serious complications or death.

Gradual heart attacks begin with mild discomfort that slowly gets worse, while abrupt onset refers to sudden and severe pain from the start.

“Both are a medical emergency and require urgent help,” said study author Dr Sahereh Mirzaei, from the University of Illinois, in the US. “But our study shows that gradual symptoms are not taken seriously.”

Dr Mirzaei’s study of 474 patients showing up at A&E with acute coronary syndrome – a condition that causes sudden, low blood flow to the heart – found symptoms came on abruptly in 56% of patients and emerged gradually in 44%.

Both women and men sought medical help more quickly when they experienced abrupt pain.

What are the symptoms of a gradual heart attack?

Chest pain, chest discomfort and chest pressure are warning signs that an artery may be blocked, which could cause a heart attack. Patients experiencing any of these should call the emergency medical services immediately, said Dr Mirzaei.

Other symptoms can also include pain in the throat, neck, back, stomach or shoulders, as well as nausea, cold sweats, weakness, shortness of breath, or fear.

Some people may be more at risk than others.

In the study, a number of men with heart disease, or those who had a family history of it, had symptoms triggered by physical exertion. Risky activities included climbing stairs, pulling, pushing, shovelling, heavy gardening, running and jogging.

Study author Dr Mirzaei said men with ischaemic heart disease or other risk factors including hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, or high cholesterol should be aware that chest pain or discomfort after physical effort could be a heart attack. Chest pain or discomfort, whether severe and sudden or mild and slow, “should not be ignored”, she warned.

Barbara Kobson, senior cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation (BHF), tells HuffPost UK symptoms can vary hugely from person to person, which is why knowing the common signs and symptoms of a heart attack is “vital” to ensure that people seek medical attention quickly when one strikes – and receive treatment sooner for a better chance of full recovery.

“People may not associate heart attacks with a slow onset because they may be expecting typical symptoms such as a crushing central chest pain, tightness or heaviness in the chest,” says Kobson. “Even if you feel unsure of the symptoms, especially when they present as mild symptoms, it is still important to seek medical advice.”

If you do experience any of the above symptoms which don’t go away, call 999 immediately.

Hi,

16 HIFU for Prostate Cancer Treatment Pros and Cons

The high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment for prostate cancer offers a non-invasive therapeutic technique which features non-ionizing ultrasonic waves that will heat tissues in the body. This process is useful when increasing the flow of blood or lymph fluid is necessary to create a positive impact on the cancer.

When a man goes through this procedure, then sound waves are used to create temperatures as high as 90°F that can kill the cancer cells in just seconds. Your physician would use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with the ultrasound imaging to know where the exact location of the tumor is. That gives them the opportunity to point the sound waves in the right direction.

Although surgery is not required for this treatment, it can create pain because of the heat. You will receive anesthesia and shouldn’t feel any pain during the procedure. You will then have a catheter placed to catch any urine while the doctors are working. Then the ultrasound probe is placed into the rectum to send the sound waves to where they need to go.

If you have been diagnosed with this condition and are looking for alternative treatment options, then these are the pros and cons of the HIFU procedure for prostate cancer.

List of the Pros of the HIFU Treatment for Prostate Cancer

1. HIFU is approved by the FDA for treatment of prostate cancer.
Although the high-intensity focused ultrasound procedure was hanging in limbo for several years waiting for regulatory approval, it is now available to men in the United States when they receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer. There are two systems currently available that can treat tumors or destroy diseased tissue, making it a useful option for many men. Medicare has already agreed to cover the treatment with their coverage protocol as well, which should impact its level of availability in the near future.

2. It doesn’t take long to produce the results that you want.
The HIFU treatment option takes four hours or less to successfully deal with the prostate cancer. Some patients can have their procedure completed in 60 minutes because of how effective it is. Before you can have it done, your doctor will want you to have an enema to ensure that your bowels are empty. There is also a restriction in place that you cannot eat or drink anything for at least six hours before having the operation.

3. HIFU has fewer side effects for guys than other prostate cancer treatments.
There are far fewer side effects associated with this prostate cancer treatment than the others which are currently available right now. One of the most difficult issues that is associated with HIFU involves having trouble getting an erection for the first few weeks after it is done. Most men see this issue go away over time, and medication can help some guys regain this ability.

Some men report that they have trouble urinating after having the HIFU procedure. They might also leak urine between trips to the toilet. There can also be pain between your rectum and testicles that medication can treat. Rare side effects include a UTI, blood in the urine, and a testicular infection.

4. This treatment option is not something that is new for the rest of the world.
Although the HIFU treatment for prostate cancer is new in the United States, it is something that is been practiced for more than a decade in Europe and Asia. Guys from the U.S. have even traveled overseas to receive this treatment when they were part of a well-selected group that required help with ultra-localized cancer cells. It is such an effective technique that most men after just 7 days of recovery do not notice any significant side effects.

5. It removes the risks of radiation from the treatment process.

This treatment option for prostate cancer kills the cancer cells without needing to use radiation. That means you can kill all of the genetic material that causes the cells to multiply abnormally without irradiating them. Although there is still a risk that healthy cells will be killed alongside the cancer cells with this treatment option, the impact on the rest of the body is relatively minor. You will typically keep your surrounding tissues healthier with HIFU then you would with a comparative radiation procedure.

6. Doctors are able to make adjustments during the procedure.
The HIFU treatment procedure for prostate cancer allows doctors to adapt to what they find after their work begins. This setup makes it possible for the energy to stay focused on the exact location where it can provide the most help. For some guys, that means the entire prostate gland can receive ablation without worrying about making a single incision to start killing off the cancer cells. Then you can return back to your normal life after the procedure. Some guys even celebrate it by going out to dinner that same night.

7. The HIFU procedure uses clean energy to create results.
Doctors can use this treatment for prostate cancer repetitively without causing additional damage to the surrounding tissues or organs as they would encounter with the traditional options. It features non-ionizing energy that allows you to pursue other treatments in the future if your doctor feels that they are necessary. You can even receive another HIFU if that offers the best chance to destroy the cancer. That means you don’t need to destroy your life just to make sure that you continue to have one.

8. It is a procedure that is minimally invasive.
You will not need to worry about having surgery when the HIFU is the treatment recommendation for your prostate cancer. The treatment will have you be put to sleep using a general anesthesia under most circumstances to avoid the pain that the sound waves can cause. The only two items of concern are the catheter that is placed to allow any urine to escape and the ultrasound, which is then placed in your rectum. Your body does not need to recover from incisions like it would with other treatment options.

9. You have more bladder control with the HIFU treatment.
When you and your doctor decide that the HIFU treatment is the best way to treat your prostate cancer, then you will benefit from an increased level of control over your bladder after the work is done. When compared to other treatment options, the issues with incontinence are relatively minor. The risks of a bowel disorder or ongoing leakage are greatly reduced when taking this approach.

List of the Cons of the HIFU Treatment for Prostate Cancer

1. It still requires pre-treatment options before it can be successful.
The reason why HIFU is a successful treatment option for prostate cancer us because it relies on first-hand visualization and real-time data. Guys must go through the entire diagnosis process before this procedure will receive a go-ahead from their treatment physician. Like other treatment options for this cancer, such as CyberKnife, there are CT scans, a prostate biopsy, and imaging requirements necessary that can become costly if your health insurance does not cover the costs effectively.

2. There may not be any availability for this procedure in this region.
Because HIFU only recently received FDA approval to treat guys in United States, there are not many providers currently active in this area of prostate cancer treatment. Some guys may need to travel extensively if they receive a referral for this procedure, which is an expense that is not always covered by medical insurance. If you’re thinking about the pros and cons of HIFU for your condition, then speak with your treating physician to see if they know of someone in your region that offers it.

3. The data used to treat the prostate cancer may be out of date.
It can take some time to go from the initial diagnosis of prostate cancer to an open appointment for your first treatment. Even with the CT scans and other imaging tools used to generate information for the provider, the amount of time between data gathering and treatment can be inaccurate. That means the first treatment may not be as accurate as it could be. It is almost impossible to know the true extent of prostate cancer until a doctor can see it for themselves.

4. Some guys might still need to receive other prostate cancer treatments.
The HIFU treatment may be an effective non-invasive way to stop prostate cancer, but it doesn’t always remove all of the damage tissues or cancer cells. We currently have about 10 years of data from which to work when evaluating the high-intensity focused ultrasound process. What the information shows is that there is a 1 in 10 risk that you may need to receive ongoing prostate cancer treatments after this procedure. When this element combines with the fact that we don’t know what its long-term risks or effectiveness are as of yet, it may not be the right choice for some men.

5. There is a high risk of impotence for men with the HIFU procedure.
According to Dr. David Samadi, a robotic oncology specialist, there is a 15% risk of impotence with optimal patient conditions, surgical results, and post-operative care when using robotic surgery to treat prostate cancer. When the HIFU method is used to attack the cancer cells, then some reports indicate that up to 70% of men are left with impotency. This higher risk is due to the potential for nerve damage in the region where erectile function occurs.

6. Your doctor may want the catheter to stay in for a while.
Some doctors may choose to keep the catheter in place after this treatment for prostate cancer for up to a week – and sometimes more. If you encounter this issue, then it is essential that you review the pros and cons of managing your tubing to ensure that you can begin returning to your regular lifestyle and routine.

7. The HIFU method is only useful in specific situations.
According to Cancer Research UK, the HIFU treatment option for prostate cancer is only effective when there is a single tumor or part of a large tumor that are discovered during the diagnostic process. It cannot be used for guys who have tumors that have begun to spread from this area. You can only receive a referral if the cancer remains localized to the prostate.

The pros and cons of the HIFU treatment for prostate cancer are still relatively unknown. There is a significant lack of clinical data available to support its effectiveness. There is also no information to support the idea that this treatment process is ineffective. Because it is so new, we do not have any information about its long-term treatment success rates either. As more guys receive their cancer treatment using this method, there will certainly be more advantages and disadvantages to consider. As for right now, deciding on HIFU is for you and your doctor.

Hi,

further to the article below it is interesting to note that once the 5G system is available it will be possible for the patient to be in an operating theatre in a given country and the surgeon to be carrying out the operation to work in real time over the internet from anywhere else in the world!

12 Pros and Cons of the Da Vinci Robotic Surgery

The da Vinci® Surgical System is a medical treatment option that uses a robotic surgery system to create a minimally invasive alternative for laparoscopy and some open surgeries. This technology makes it possible for doctors to make a handful of tiny incisions to treat the patient, providing better precision, control, and vision for the surgeon while working. Patients can then recover sooner because there are fewer incisions involved, allowing individuals to move on to their next treatment need or return to their daily routine faster.

Although this surgical option is available for a variety of procedures, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America ® uses it as a treatment for a variety of different cancer surgeries, including liver, stomach, prostate, pancreas, and colon diagnoses. It is sometimes used to treat gynecologic cancers as well.

The surgeon operates from a seated position at a console. Their eyes and hands are in line with the instruments. Then a 3-D, high-definition view of the target anatomy is displayed to produce the intended results. These are the pros and cons of the da Vinci robotic surgery to consider.

List of the Pros of the da Vinci Robotic Surgery

1. There is less pain involved with the da Vinci surgery.
Because this robotic surgery creates fewer and smaller incisions than an open surgery might require, patients typically experience less recovery pain after the procedure. It may even allow for some outpatient procedures to occur, or an option to come home the day after the surgery if it occurs in the morning. Although no surgery is 100% pain-free, choosing da Vinci if it is available allows you to get back on your feet a lot faster when compared to the overall traditional approach.

2. There is a lower risk of complications or infections with this surgery.
The da Vinci robotic surgery system makes smaller incisions during the procedure, which means there are fewer opportunities for an infection to set in after the surgery. You have a lower risk of complications when choosing this option as well thanks to the impersonal nature of the equipment. Although a surgeon is at the controls using a 3-D image of the body to guide the process, there are fewer chances for “leftovers” to remain in the body after completion.

The reduced impact on the body reduces the risk of bacterial interference with the process. It reduces the risk of an accidental injury during the recovery phase. That means people can heal faster and more completely after the medical work is complete.

3. There are shorter hospital stays with the da Vinci surgery.
When using the da Vinci robotic system for surgery, the smaller incisions lead to a shorter time in recovery. That means some patients can get out of the hospital sooner than they would with the traditional surgical approach. Surgeons can access the intended area with greater precision and less of a physical impact, which is why the time in post-op is considerably lower with most procedures. It is such an effective process that it can be useful as an outpatient option for some health issues. There are patients who can even come home after coming out of general anesthesia on the same day. That also means there are fewer scarring issues that occur during the healing process since the access areas are much smaller.

4. There is a faster return to the normal activities of life.
Depending on the patient diagnosis or the type of cancer that requires treatment, individuals can get back to their normal routines of life much faster thanks to the da Vinci system. That means you can regain urinary continence, restore sexual function, or begin to exercise lightly much sooner than you would before the invention of this surgical option.

The reason why this advantage is possible is because of the advantages that are available to the surgeon. The da Vinci system provides more precision, increases the range of motion for the physician, and improves the available dexterity of the work.

5. There is an enhancement in the visualization for the surgeon.
The da Vinci system allows the surgeon to see an enhanced view of the anatomy and what surgical interventions need to occur. This process makes it easier to see the problem areas that require fixing. It is even possible to see areas that may not be possible with the naked eye, even with the presence of magnifying lenses in the operating theater. That means surgeons have an improved ability to spare healthy tissues that are no impacted by cancer when this option is available for the patient.

6. There is less fatigue associated with the surgery for the physician.
Surgeons use the da Vinci robotic system while sitting down, which means there is less overall fatigue associated with this option compared to the traditional intervention. That’s not to say that doctors won’t become tired during a long surgery, because they do, but there are fewer risk factors involved with a prolonged procedure since the activities take place in a low-impact environment.

The surgical robot can also be used by multiple doctors when necessary for an extended procedure. You can also use the equipment with rotating surgical teams throughout the day, with proper disinfecting techniques, to eliminate the human restrictions which are sometimes in place in some facilities.

7. There are fewer blood loss issues with a successful da Vinci surgery.
Robotic surgeries have significantly less blood loss for the patient when you compare the da Vinci techniques to the open approach. That means there are lower transfusion rates that occur during the hospital stay, and then the length of time during recovery is much less as well. Although the cost of the procedure may be higher in some geographical areas, patients can make up some of the expense with savings on the recovery end of the process.

Some complications from surgery are also lower with the da Vinci system, including deep vein thrombosis, lymphoceles, hematomas, ureteral injuries, anastomotic leaks, and wound infections. That means there is an even lower cost expectation in the follow-up to consider for some individuals as well.

List of the Cons of the da Vinci Robotic Surgery

1. Some surgeries may require you to be held in an unnatural position.
The da Vinci robotic surgery system attempts to keep patients in as natural of a position as possible during the procedure. There are times when access is not possible using the usual method, which means you need to be placed in an unusual position while the surgeon does their work. That means you have the risk of suffering from permanent nerve damage if you are kept in that state for an extended time.

There is also the risk of other physical injuries for some procedures if you are kept in an unnatural state for a long time. These are in addition to the typical risks of surgery that everyone faces when a surgeon needs to intervene for their medical care.

2. Tactile feedback is eliminated through the robotic system.
Surgeons do not receive the same levels of tactile feedback when working on a patient when they use the da Vinci system over a manual option. That means there is a slight increase in the risk of an injury if an adjacent organ is hit during the medical procedure. Because equipment is being used instead of the hands of a doctor, there is an increased risk of suffering a burn when choosing this option.

This disadvantage is mitigated through the training process for each doctor and continued with their experience in the operating theater, but it still exists.

3. There are no national training standards in the U.S. for robotic surgery.
One of the most significant advantages of the da Vinci robotic surgery system is that there are no national medical standards to follow for this procedure. Many surgeons receive their training online, and then they receive a one-day session at the facility which manufactures the equipment. Some doctors will receive supervised surgeries, usually 1-2, before being fully released to use the equipment independently.

It is up to the individual hospital to determine if their doctors are qualified to use the robotic systems in their facilities. It can take a long time to master this minimally invasive technology, so patients must perform their due diligence when deciding if this option is the best choice for your medical needs.

4. Cost considerations may come into play for some patients.
The cost of any surgery is going to be a significant medical expense for patients in the United States. Hospital costs in the U.S. average about $4,000 per day, which is an expense that incurs about $15,000. Then you have the cost of the surgery to consider. If you have a heart valve replacement, then the expense may be as high as $200,000 in some markets. Some cancer surgeries run in the $150,000 range. Even a gastric bypass may be upwards of $25,000, which is in addition to the costs of the hospital stay.

5. The equipment can malfunction during the surgical intervention.
One of the risks of using robotic technology for a surgery is that there can be malfunctions that occur, even if the maintenance schedule is kept up-to-date on the equipment. If this disadvantage occurs in the middle of a procedure, then the arms of the da Vinci system may not respond as anticipated. That can mean the surgery can take longer than expected, require a physical intervention to complete the work, and can enhance the risk of complication in some situations.

The reality of robotic surgery is that it may not offer many long-term benefits for patients that are comparable to open techniques, which means the advantages all involve short-term circumstances. If the surgery is successful, then you will recover either way over time, so the expense may become your top consideration.

Verdict on the Pros and Cons of the da Vinci Robotic Surgery

As with any surgery, a patient should think twice about using the da Vinci robotic system if what is necessary is a routine procedure. If you need a hernia repair, gallbladder removal, gastric bypass, or a standard colon surgery, then the complexity of this option might not be suitable for your needs.

On the other hand, the dexterity of the robot with this system may make complex cancer surgeries, the removal of neck or head tumors, and options where a minimally invasive choice is not available easier to manage during and after the procedure.

When evaluating the pros and cons of the da Vinci robot surgery, you will want to look at the key points individually with your doctor. It is your comfort level with this process, along with the experience of your physician, that should guide you toward your final decision.

 Hi,

AND NOW, YET ANOTHER LABOUR HEALTH SCANDAL … THIS TIME AT THE HEATH HOPSPITAL

Patients at Cardiff’s Heath Hospital have been found left in a crowded waiting room, sitting in a chair for up to 20 hours and overnight with no food and drink  ….according to a damning report by the Welsh Labour Government’s own Health Inspectorate Wales.

The Heath Hospital – also known as the University Hospital of Wales Cardiff – is the main hospital for Penarth and is run by the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.

In March this year inspectors from the Health Inspectorate Wales descended – uninvited and un-announced  – on the Heath Hospital’s so-called “Assessment Unit” in March this year  – where it appears that in order to fiddle waiting times in Accident and Emergency – patients are dumped and left where they won’t be counted in A&E waiting times  .

However thanks to the HIW inspectors, the  sleight-of-hand has failed to pay off – the hospital managers and the Cardiff and Vale Health Board have been well and truly rumbled.

The HIW report  found that many patients waiting to be assessed at Wales’ biggest hospital were left in chairs for up to 20 hours, some without proper food or drink.

A team from Health Inspectorate Wales (HIW) visited in the Heath Hopsital in March, following a tip-off from the local patient watchdog about the hospital’s Assessment Unit (AU).

Inspectors found:-

  •  Patients waiting in chairs within the AU lounge for“unacceptable and prolonged” periods of time – many throughout the night
  •  Patients without immediate access to drinking water – some went without hot food, and were not always offered sandwiches or biscuits
  •  The lounge – which has 20 seats – was cramped and offered little or no privacy for patients
  •  Staffing and recruitment issues, often leaving shifts short of staff – including immediate concerns which could impact on patient safety
  •  “Significant improvements” were found to be needed to improve the quality of patient care and the delivery of safe and effective care.

Penarth AM Andrew R T Davies

Penarth Conservative AM Andrew RT Davies (South Wales Central) says “This is a damning report on the state of health services at Wales’ biggest hospital. Some of the findings are absolutely appalling and no individual should be subject to such treatment, particularly when they are likely to be at their most vulnerable.

“There are serious concerns regarding staffing and the quality of care at the Heath Hospital and Labour’s Health Minister [Vaughan Gething]  must take responsibility . Once again the Welsh NHS is failing on his watch.  “

Mr Davies says “We now need a clear action plan to deliver the rapid and sustained improvement which is needed to deliver better care for patients in Cardiff and South Wales. Regrettably, patients and front-line staff continue to be let down by mismanagement and incompetent leadership from the Welsh Labour Government.”

Hi,

Jess Commons
Doctor or psychiatrist consulting and diagnostic examining stressful woman patient on obstetric - gynecological female illness, or mental health in medical clinic or hospital healthcare service center © Getty Doctor or psychiatrist consulting and diagnostic examining stressful woman patient on obstetric – gynecological female illness, or mental health in medical clinic or hospital healthcare service center For many young women (myself included), female-specific cancers seem like an older person’s game – something we’ll worry about when the menopause comes, or even later, when we’re sitting in an old people’s home. Actually, though, when it comes to ovarian cancer, nearly half of cases are found in women under 65. And almost two thirds of us (again, myself included) are not confident in recognising the telltale symptoms of ovarian cancer, according to a study from BMI Healthcare.

According to new research from the charity Ovarian Cancer Action, 82% of women are unable to name the four main symptoms, while 70% could be ignoring the telltale signs of the deadly disease. Ovarian cancer is the sixth most common cancer in women in the UK. It affects more than 7,000 women each year with incidence “rising sharply from around age 30-34”. Half of cases appear in women under 65.

According to Professor Gordon Rustin, Consultant Medical Oncologist at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital, the symptoms of ovarian cancer tend to be not all that different from those reported in relation to other, more common problems, which probably goes some way to explain why 70% of the women from the survey who had experienced symptoms of ovarian cancer, had not sought medical help. “They are similar to the symptoms from many common non-cancerous conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion or menstrual problems,” he says.

Shot of a young woman experiencing stomach pain on the sofa at home © Getty Shot of a young woman experiencing stomach pain on the sofa at home As with all cancers, early diagnosis is always best, but this is especially the case with ovarian cancer, where the majority of stage 1 cases can actually be successfully treated. “Once it has spread, though,” warns Professor Rustin, “the majority cannot unfortunately be cured. I see some women who had symptoms for a year or more and one wonders whether if they had had an ultrasound scan or CA125 blood test earlier they might have been diagnosed when still stage 1.”

So what are the symptoms? Well, as Professor Rustin says, they could be mistaken for less-serious things like IBS, or even period pain, and include pain in the lower abdomen or side, irregular periods, being sick and going to the loo often.

Those affected could also feel bloated and swollen. “Feeling bloated is one of the most common symptoms related to ovarian cancer and is usually worse after eating,” says Professor Rustin, adding that sufferers may end up cutting back on food to prevent this.

So how are you supposed to know when it’s something more sinister? “The big difference between bloating or swollen abdomen associated with menstruation is that with menstruation it is related to the menstrual cycle and rarely lasts for more than a few days, while with cancer it gets progressively worse and requires investigation if it lasts for more than than one to two weeks.”

Professor Rustin also says that pain during sex could be a sign. This could manifest itself as a “deep tenderness or sometimes more severe and sharp”. Constipation may be a symptom, too, if the patient hasn’t been troubled by it before and it “cannot be explained by a change in diet.”

If you’re worried about anything you might be showing then please, contact your GP.

Hi,

Alex Trebek is one of the USA’s best-known TV personalities.

For more than 30 years, he’s hosted the iconic game show ‘Jeopardy!’ – versions have been tried on UK TV in the 1990s, hosted by Steve Jones for ITV, followed by a version for Sky One, hosted by Paul Ross. In the UK, it came and went.

In the USA, it has been consistently popular for decades. Jeopardy is currently going through a very interesting period as contestant James Holzhauer breaks all sorts of records – it is quite extraordinary to watch him answer questions on such a wide range of subjects. He has currently made $1.6 million, and it’s increasing with each episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Xs7pRcpkeE

 

In March, Trebek, 78, announced he had stage IV pancreatic cancer in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cInGyxCY9k

 

Earlier this week, he appeared on Good Morning America where he spoke candidly about his diagnosis, the effects of chemotherapy etc:

and there is more information on his illness here:
