Hey Group - today is the first Friday since October 13, 2016 that I have not had to go into my hospital for the CA125 and total blood work up for chemo tomorrow. My health insurance is not in force AND my doc said I could get away with one month treatment free - or rather when I asked him what he would do as far as oral chemo versus not having any chemo he said he would elect to be treatment free-he will decide how to proceed in August. My beef today is that both of my oncologists have said "chemotherapy will weaken your body." And I'm like AND??? So now I am going to counter every direction with "is this WHAT YOU WOULD DO" and "IS THIS HOW YOU WOULD TREAT YOUR FAMILY MEMBER." Because, just a weaken comment, is not helpful, it is hurtful, and not positive. Thoughts? THANKS. Hugs for today.
