I was diagnosed 3.5 ys ago, went through debulking and several rounds of chemo. Tolerated well the first two but caved in at Doxil and cut it short. Then had one year of feeling fine, but they found some small methastising and put me on Tamoxifen. This was so bad - not just nausea but everything else in the catalogue - my onc.told me to stop. Now I am fine once more, going for a CT and then for consultation.
The problem is this. Seemingly every medication makes me sick, but when untreated I feel great. Of course I'd try all to get cured, but my onc. said cure was not on the list at all, it's incurable, the are only try to extend my life at good quality. However - if every med makes me sick and robs the quality of life, should I go on with them, suffering and not getting cured anyway? Is a life with no quality worth the added years? Has anybody survived long with no treatment?
