I see a new oncologist this week and I am sure, even though I am Stage IV terminal lung cancer, that she will recommend chemo as it seems they always do for everyone and every cancer. But, I personally doubt it would be worth doing for the side effects. Unless she could say that by taking it that I would gain a year or more on my life, I don't think it would be worth the problems and side effects. Anyone else ever not take chemo and how are you doing? Did your onco tell you in months or years how much chemo would add? I just don't want to be stupid, but, I also don't want to be miserable for the remaining time I have left. Quality over quantity, right?
