Hi brb0923...dang another brother joins the club unwillingly. Sorry you are here, but pull up a chair and sit a spell. I had surgery so I can't comment on the seeds, but from what you said about
the biopsy, it is certainly a method to consider. There are prones and cons to each form of treatment, so research for what is best for you and your family. I am not familiar at all with your wifes condition, but it didn't sound very good...sounds like a surgery procedure...am I correct?
Lots of folks here will offer their take on dietary...and most will be of value. That is another area I don't know much about
either...but my wife sure does and makes sure I am taking what she feels is best. Personally, I don't put a lot of faith into those sort of things...to me...eat healthy, stay active, get plenty of rest and exercise...that is the key to living a long life in my opinion.
