I had bladder cancer back in 1994 and went through a round of chemo that really frightened me.
I developed aspiration pnumonia and a temperature of 105 and was in a near comatose state. My doctors had told all my friends to gather around, as I would not be there the next morning.
I was able to wake up and start coughing and obviously survived (but I never completed the chemo cycle).
Now I am faced with a metastesis of that cancer and chemo is again being suggested as the best therapy.
My fear is so strong about what happened in 1994 that it really is effecting my ability to decide to do chemo again.
Can anyone offer me any advice?
