    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Went to a different hospital for the same symptoms, originally told I was having a miscarriage, but within 2 hours had my diagnosis.

    Decision Point

    My doctor wants to do an experimental preventative chemo treatment....I am not sold on the idea, but we are going ahead with it.
