I don't like the fact that they're putting the vomiting and weight loss down to "psychological stress" and not her cancer and it's treatment.  Now of course someone battling cancer would be stressed but given her own history when crown princess, and that of her daughter-in-law, I'm getting huge red flags.  She certainly shouldn't have faced stress as crown princess but it's even more inexcusable that she's facing it again in her 80s as the Empress Emerita.

Come on, you would think the IHA would get caught up with science and health and realize that vomiting and weightloss also happens with cancer...

Right...I forgot to add that it would be totally normal for those to be cancer treatment side effects.

Indeed, this is a very strange medical report from the Imperial Household Agency, who seem obsessed with illness "triggered by psychological stress," especially when it comes to royal women.  I agree, Oh_Caroline, about red flags!

Nevertheless, I don't think that vomiting blood is a normal side effect of cancer treatment for breast cancer.  Per the Mayo Clinic, truly vomiting blood usually represents something such as bleeding in your upper gastrointestinal tract from peptic ulcers or torn blood vessels.

Years ago, vomiting was unavoidable with chemotherapy; now there are many drugs that help control nausea and vomiting called antiemetics.  When I went through chemotherapy for breast cancer, I took SIX anti-nausea drugs and never got sick to my stomach once they got the meds right.

I am actually very surprised that they would publish a private information such as vomitting blood.
Whatever the cause is (and gastrointestinal problems occur fairly regularly with many different diseases and their treatments), I should believe that a much more general announcement would have sufficed:
The E.E was feeling very poorly, her condition while still battling Breast Cancer (or the after-effects of it) was not quite progressing satisfactorily due to cancer accompanying psychological issues and her advanced age.
Though on second thought, scratch the "due to….lalala". After all she is 85 and not a spring chicken and at that age most diseases can be far more lethal.

Talking about cancer is a huge cultural taboo in Japan. Maybe it relates back to all the radiation-caused cancer post Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In any case, many families and doctors will lie to  a patient, giving any other diagnosis save cancer. And they will be ashamed and abashed to discuss a family member's cancer diagnosis and treatment. So that's why the Imperial Household Agency may well be circumventing the issue in its press contacts.

And how can people and treated correctly, if no one tells them the truth? What kind of sense makes it, if they've cancer and are treated for something else?

Oh, they are treated for cancer but everyone pretends it's not so in efforts to spare everyone's feelings. Weird place, Japan.

December 23
The Imperial RF visited Nissho Hall in Tokyo to watch a Japanese animation film called "This Corner (and Other Corners) of the World" directed by Sunao Katabuchi.
The film was screened in aid of the Japanese Red Cross Society of Hiroshima Prefecture and depicts wartime daily lives of citizens in Hiroshima. The film is an extended cut of the hit 2016 animation film "In This Corner of the World" about a young woman in 1930s-1940s in Hiroshima and Kure.

Interesting:


Princess Mako, the 28-year-old eldest daughter of Crown Prince Akishino and Princess Kiko's engagement has been postponed for nearly two years. This has been a cause of concern for the imperial family as a whole, and is influencing the debate over whether women should be allowed to head imperial family branches. An announcement is expected in February 2020 on the current status of the wedding.

Poor Mako. I really hope that it'll turn out alright for her.

Maybe they also don't want her to marry as they need people for doing engagements in the JRF, especially once Hisahito is Emperor.

Same. I'm surprised they let it come out in the first place. Those two girls aren't going anywhere.
