Surviving Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Posted by on September 11, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Peritoneal mesothelioma is a type of mesothelioma that afflicts the lining of the abdomen. It happens when someone ingests asbestos fibers. This type of mesothelioma accounts for 10-15% of all mesothelioma cases.

Nevertheless, it’s just as deadly as other types of mesothelioma, including mesothelioma of the lungs.

Paul Kraus is a survivor of mesothelioma and continues to live with the disease more than 20 years after his initial diagnosis. Despite the fact so many believe it’s a death sentence, there is hope.

Why is Peritoneal Mesothelioma So Dangerous?

The difficulty with peritoneal mesothelioma is it’s difficult to diagnose it early. Most patients are diagnosed late.

The most common symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal pain, and constipation. These are extremely general symptoms and it’s not uncommon for mesothelioma to be misdiagnosed or for the sufferer to ignore the symptoms entirely.

Like all types of mesothelioma, prognoses are poor.

How Did Paul Kraus Beat the Odds?

Paul Kraus is an inspiration to many because he continues to outlive his diagnosis. Most mesothelioma patients – unless they opt for invasive surgery – live only a few months. Paul has lived for more than 20 years, and it’s not due to luck.

He took a proactive approach to his treatment. The moment he was diagnosed, Paul researched alternative treatment methods he could use alongside more traditional treatments.

His philosophy is that lifestyle change can make a big difference to one’s prognosis.

So, he changed his diet, adopted exercise, and focused on practices that would improve his mental health, such as meditation.

For example, studies have shown that there’s moderate evidence to support the fact meditation treats chronic pain and anxiety.

You Don’t Need to be Special to Survive

It’s easy to label people like Paul as incredibly lucky. But that’s far from the truth. Paul is not special. He just does what other patients didn’t.

He did his research at a time when lifestyle change was largely dismissed in favor of invasive and painful surgeries and chemotherapy treatments.

Now alternative treatments are becoming mainstream treatments. Paul’s case has become a model for how lifestyle change can bring about change in terminal cancer patients.

What Do You Need to Do to Survive?

There are no guarantees that every mesothelioma patient will live for two decades by doing what Paul did. What is clear is that as we discover more about food, the impact of exercise and the healing power of the mind life expectancies are improving.

And things are only getting better for mesothelioma patients with every year that passes.

Wouldn’t you change your lifestyle if it meant an extra year of living?

Last Word – Using Paul’s Mesothelioma Experience as a Model of Hope

There is hope for every mesothelioma patient. By using Paul’s experience, you can potentially improve your prognosis significantly.

All you need to do is be willing to commit to a lifestyle change, and you never know what might happen.

Are you currently suffering from mesothelioma and are worried about your future?
