    Oh No

    I can't believe this is happening to me. There is no family history!

    Wait to see if numbness goes away in a month or decide to stop chemo now

    Decision Point

    This was a tough decision. I had a plan and now it was different. I did decide to end chemo without having the last 2 treatments with the help of my oncologist
