I am thinking of not moving forward with the radiation treatments because of the cost. I am already reeling from the medical bills for chemo and haven't got the bill yet for the surgery. My question is this: Is it a possibility to skip radiation? I had chemo then a lumpectomy. As soon as I heal they want me to start radiation therapy, but now I am wondering if it really does anything because of so many people's recurrences? Any thoughts?
I am experiencing depression again so I am not sure if that is contributing to this defeatist attitude.
