Chavez Back to Cuba for More Chemo
2012-11-28
CARACAS, Venezuela -- The newly re-elected Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will head back for another round of treatment to combat pelvic cancer that has plagued the world leaders for almost two years.

Chavez has asked his country's legislature Tuesday for permission to travel to Cuba for more medical treatment after spending much of the past 18 months fighting cancer.
He spends much more of his time away he's gonna look like Jesse Jackson Jr. ...
The Tuesday request says Chavez has needed "various sessions of hyperbaric oxygenation" and physical therapy to continue "consolidating the process of strengthening health." The request doesn't provide more details about the treatment.

The 58-year-old president first underwent cancer treatment in Cuba in June 2011 and suffered a relapse in February. He has since said he's recovered from the pelvic cancer and won re-election in October against opposition candidate Henrique Capriles. With his recent victory, Chavez will now have a freer hand to push for absolute power an even bigger state role in the economy, as he pledged during the campaign, and to continue populist programs. He's also likely to further limit dissent and deepen friendships with U.S. rivals such as Iran.

During his campaign Chavez spoke little about his fight with cancer, but he has said his most recent tests showed no sign of illness.
He was lying, of course...

#5  Best chemo for him now is probably some of the good stuff moved by his friends in FARC.

This looks like Manfred von Ardenne's Oxygen
Multistep Therapy
and/or Systemic
Cancer Multistep Therapy
.

Are they trying alternative medicine because everything else was a failure?
