Most of you know I got my first post treatment scan last week and it was clean as a whistle. My treatment consisted of 3( rads with a weekly dose of Cisplatin. I missed the last two doses of chemo due to low blood count. Doc has asked me to decide whether I want to take the last two doses just for peace of mind. He said he has absolutely no evidence to support taking it or not taking it. He reiterated this several times. The only pro I see in taking the last doses are I won't ever be able to blame myself if it comes back. The cons are many - delayed removal of tube, possible regression back to the eating problems I had, pumping 70 more ml of toxic goodness into my body for possibly no reason. So, what do you think you would do?
