      hi, if you trust your surgeon and he says kemo, do it. if you don't trust him get two other opinions. i had kemo, then surgury, then my surgeon told me he wanted me to do more kemo even though it would be only 15% beneficial. my answer ( even though kemo sucks, but i didn't have to wax) if you say do it i will. i wouldn't do a trial. if the survey says do kemo, DO KEMO. i am grateful to say i am a lung cancer survivor. prayer works to.

      I opted for Chemo. My thought was why not get the lowest numbers for return and this lowered my chance of return. Good luck making the decision.

      My score was 19 and I had IDC PR/ER+, no node involvement. But because I had early colon cancer a year before, my oncologist insisted on chemo. Chemo is never fun but it is doable. I had potty issues from colon surgery which made chemo a bit challenging, and I also have Fibromyalgia. For me, I wanted to know I did all I could to fight cancer so I had no regrets later. If I were you, I would see another oncologist for a second opinion. Perhaps that would help you make the choice. Remember, we get much better drugs with our chemo now and are kept pretty comfortable. The most difficult part was the extreme fatigue, but it all passed and I show no evidence of disease today. Good luck to you!
