    Me: i am a cervical cancer patient i have undegone chemo for 3x already. by the way im erla from davao
    Me: philippines
    Doc: is there something i can help?
    Me: dr ana as of now i stop visiting my OB due to financial problems. i would like to know if you can give me any advice on what medicine i can take for i have my daily discharges
    Doc: i'm so sorry before, because we're not allowed to give medicine brand name or prescription..
    Me: ah ok thank you so much doc, any other advice from you doc for am i going to do
    Doc: my suggestion is that, erla could go to OB doctor once again and tell her/him about financial problem.. and you can ask for some medicine to be taken for a long time so that you don't have to go there frequently
    Doc: i believe she/ he will understand..
    Doc: tell her/him that you want the therapy but it's about financial problem you have
    Me: actually doc i was really advice to finish my 6 session on chemo but i cant really afford financially on this theraphy, so i just rely on herbal med.is it ok doc
    Doc: hm.. about herbal medicine, it is out of my field.. i'm so sorry erla.. i'm not sure about its advantages and side effect
    Me: ok doc ana thank you very much again for your time and i will just wait any email from you.
    Me: goodbye doc ana
    Doc: ok erla, see you

    Hi Erla
    if you need 6 session is possible you need only 4 or 5.. most of time the last time session is to secure a possible relapse. So for the 6th herbal therapy is fine.. How much it cost for the 4th and the 5 th session? i believe you should check in Manila is some charity organization operate some hospital can take you for this 2 sessions... wait news from you, as i understand your stressful situation
