    Decision Point (I could not take the chemo and live whats left of my life without the side effects of chemo.): I am only 56 years old and not even ready to die. I want to see my 8 grand children grow up more. I raised 3 boys and I learned to like sports so I want to get to as many games as my grandchildren are in.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Coler Rectal drugs): This time the chemo was a little more fierce and it did help that the tumor didn't grow anymore, but it didn't shrink which is what I want it to do. still used 5FU

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): I went clear across our State to a Dr. that knows how to operate on my cancer. But the tumor was too big and stuck on my liver, he couldn't get it out so he sent me home with tumor and all. To get more chemo to shrink or soften the tumor .

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I was being dosed with 5FU because my Oncologist didn't have any other ideas about what will work on appendix cancer, said it is very rare.

    Oh No (Misdiagnosed): I kept going to Dr.s with pain in my abdomen no one could find anything wrong till I went to the ER, after a fall outside on the pavement. That Dr. saw a mass in my abdomen. Then I was going to surgery for Uterine cancer but that Dr. closed me up and with the biopsey diagnosed Appendix cancer
