Who on here has been in remission after doing chemo only or clinical trials?

Have any of you had pallitive chemo...whatever that is.

The primary goal of chemotherapy is to shrink tumors and stop the growth of cancer. If it’s been determined that cancer cannot be cured, chemotherapy may still be beneficial to the person to help shrink tumor size enough to alleviate the physical symptoms of cancer and to slow the progress of cancer enough to extend life.
