I just published a long, anti-chemo post, then un-published it. I'm going to sleep on it and see if I still want to publish it in the morning.
The gist of it is, I'm feeling strongly anti-chemo. I'm thinking that as long as there is no lymph node involvement (which no one THINKS there is, but we won't know till after surgery), then I am going to say NO WAY to chemo, regardless of whether my doctor(s) or the Oncotype DX test recommend it. I can't bring myself to allow doctors to pump my veins full of poison, just as an attempt to prevent a recurrence of cancer, which may or may not ever happen. Right now the idea of voluntarily putting dangerous toxins into my body seems worse to me than taking the risk of having a recurrence.
