    Procedure or Surgery

    Just heard from oncologist that the genetic test shows my number low and I will not need to have chemo. Was so scared at the thought of having to go thru that, but will need radiation and drug for five years. People around me don't seem to get that cancer is very scary even when you want to be brave.

    Minimal Recovery: Agree
