About Kat

Hi. My name is Katrina Roads, or Kat for short. At the time of writing this I’m 47 years young, have a gorgeous husband, we’ve a 9 year old son and in June 1st of 2013 I was unexpectedly diagnosed with colon cancer (adenocarcinoma). I underwent emergency life-saving surgery: that’s how I found out about the cancer. It was a big shock, to say the least. The surgery was a Hartmann’s procedure and I was given a temporary stoma to keep me alive. The surgeon said I was too “deconditioned” to risk a colon rejoin internally at the time, and that I needed more than 6 months to heal before they would do reversal surgery.

For those of you who don’t know what a stoma is, I call it my “tummy butt”, as my poo comes out of my abdomen into a bag (a colostomy) rather than out my bum. My bottom, or rectum, is temporarily my “phantom bum” as it pretends to work but nothing can come out as it’s not joined to the rest of my intestines!

I currently live on the Sunshine Coast (that’s a whole other story)…but we’ve no fixed abode…..another story.Our lives have been turned on its proverbial head for now. But I have many, many things to be grateful for, including that I am alive.

In the past 4 months we moved states, I fell gravely ill, learnt I had cancer via emergency surgery to save my life, woke up with a stoma, spent 23 days in hospital and wasted away needing to gain 15 kg. Have lived in temporary house-sits, my husband couldn’t do his business in caring for me, we declared bankrupt. I said “no” to chemotherapy and thanks to the beautiful life-saving generosity of a dear friend, “yes” to the Gerson Therapy.

And here is where my blog truly begins….

    Hello Katrina We really enjoyed your talk on Saturday night at the Cafe in Coulum. Onequestion I asked you who was your GP and you said Dr Eddie Osborne. Would you say he was into alternative treatments for cancer or just that he did not stop you from doing the Gerson diet.? I am looking for a new GP preferably on who is more intergrated with both sides of health and healing. The GP I have at the moment is good at what he does but was horified when I indicated that I might not do chemo !!!! Thanks in advance Graham

    Hi Katrina I am very interested in how do I get a hold of you? Your instructions on Coffee enemas for stomas says that we should be using a different recipe, but I cant find your contact info to get that recipe . Tried calling Gerson and they say it will take a couple days to get back. Trying to do an enema today. Would love some assistance as I haven’t found alternative instructions for the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Kathryn
