    First difficult and major treatment decision

    Decision Point

    Swimming? Reeling more like it. Met with radiation oncologist Fri and the enormity of the life changing decisions and their possible impact just hit me full on. So now I need to decide if I do chemo and radiation or just chemo before surgery. My official diagnosis is Stage III but my oncologist said she would probably Stage it as II if there did not appear to be 2 suspicious looking lymph nodes.
