Alex Mastakov Died as a Result of the Following Causes:
Alex was fighting metastatic cancer. Despite everything, Alex remained loving, cheerful, strong, and determined. Alex was diagnosed with an unusual and deadly cancer in August 2021 after finishing his veterinary speciality examinations in avian medicine and surgery.
He said on Facebook that he was doing well with chemotherapy until three days before the conclusion of his first cycle. One of his chemotherapy treatments disagreed with his digestive tract, resulting in enterocolitis and a fever.
He also offered an update after the second round of therapy. After the final cycle, he switched to just IV medications, dramatically improving his mood. This second cycle has gone quite well, with slight nausea and short-term weariness as side effects. As a result, he has felt great most of the time and can usually go about his regular activities.
The third round of chemotherapy went smoothly, and the patient’s response to the drug was excellent. He sent an update, stating he went in for his fourth round today and was doing terrific. He has also had many follow-up scans, all showing nothing.
In October 2021, he finished the fifth of eight chemotherapy cycles. He underwent further testing, which he aced with flying colours. Chemotherapy continues to be quite effective. He was overjoyed to have been able to help exotic animals and their owners while still being in good enough health to work. Unfortunately, Alex succumbed to his sickness and died early on April 14, 2023.
