My Final Answer

Options
I talked to my doc (whom I love) just now and have made a final decision to not do the makeup infusions.

My 2 concerns were that it had been 8 weeks since my last treatment and that the dosage is low anyway. He said the ONLY reason he gave me the option to make up is because he knew how my mind works. He also said I was correct in thinking that the 2 stand alone small doses would not be enough to treat anything generally and its not necessary to put the stress on my body, kind of save that in the event anything ever comes back and I need big treatment again. He also said the textbook answer is no more chemo after completion of radiotherapy. THAT WAS WHAT I NEEDED TO HEAR! Therefore, I have made an informed decision to not make up the doses. Feeding tube will be out ASAP and I trust I am making the right decision for myself. Whatever is meant to be, will be. Maybe I will be able to sleep tonight now, knowing the decision is made.

    Decisions
    Glad to see you made the decision, and happy to read what you wrote about your doc, I feel the same way about my onco and rad folks, I've trusted them so far and see no reason to stop. It was diffiuclt for my type A personality to let go and let someone make certain decisions for me.
