Continue with break from chemo or start up again - NanaL

Decision Point Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on November 24, 2012 View this journey (9 Experiences)

I have been on a chemo break since Oct. 3rd. I was rescanned on Nov. 12th and met with my oncologist on Nov. 14th. The scan showed some slight growth in several nodules in my right lung. There were some other small nodules that had also shown some growth. All in all my oncologist was happy with the scan and offered to let me continue my break thru Christmas. After some discussion with my husband and the Dr., I decided to resume chemo on Nov.28th. It made me too nervous to go another 6 weeks without treatment. I know the holidays would be more enjoyable without chemo, but i think I would have been constantly worried about what the cancer cells were doing. I was able to enjoy Thanksgiving and I hope the side effects won't knock me down too much for the rest of the holiday season. I gotta keep fighting!!
