Vitamin C infusion for head and neck cancer? Oncothermia clinic in Sydney????

My dad has stage 4 throat cancer, and has been told he has less than 12 months. That was in March, he has been having palliative chemo since then with really good results... no spread and the tumors even shrunk a little...but since his last chemo a few days ago he has deteriorated quite a bit, no appetite, tired, weak, in pain.... Getting desperate, has anyone tried the vitamin C infusions or even the oncothermia clinic up in sydney??? Thanks

Hi I have not heard of this treatment, which does not mean it is not a valid treatment. However, I would be researching extensively any treatment options that were being offered and especially those outside of the mainstream medical people. All my best to you and your dad. Julie
