Hi, This is my first post.
When I was diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer in 2010 I had a right mastectomy. I was very strongly advised to have chemotherapy.... HOWEVER ... the oncologists also said that even if I had chemo, the cancer would most likely come back in a couple of years anyway, so I declined it. I figured why go thought the hell of chemo when they reckon...very strongly...that the cancer will come back. I don't regret my decision, but I am wondering if there is anyone else out there who has refused chemo or any other treatment too.
I've felt very much on the outter because of my decision.
I'd like to hear your comments.
