    Celebration (Remission): I had the CT scan after I finished chemo and it's NED! Feeling relieved. I know the cancer can come back, but for now I'm going to be happy and enjoy every day!

      I'm in agreement with all of the others. My son says everyday, "This is the last time I'm going to chemo" because he is tired, sick, and cranky all the tiime. However, the next day he gets up and lives to fight another day. He is on rest right now between the second and 3rd chemo rounds. Take an extra rest week if possible, evaluate the priority that is your life, and then decide. Five is NOT enough or your doctors would have scheduled you for 5 rounds.

      Thank you everyone, for your kind responses and valuable experiences. I talked with my doctor and the 2 chemo nurses, and decided to stay with my decision to stop chemo. I just simply could not have done another one. I feel 100% better now that the decision is made, and I'm starting to get my strength back little by little. My CA125 is 9, so that's encouraging. I had a CT scan yesterday for a baseline. Thank you all so much for caring about me, and sharing your thoughts and experiences.

      marie60 - I can surely understand your chemo fatigue! I was diagnosed with stage IV endometrial cancer in 2009. I have had 28 months of chemo, various kinds, and 45 radiation treatments. I am not yet in remission, but the treatments are keeping the buggies at bay, and I continue to work (at 69!) and have excellent quality of life despite some side effects. I agree with those who suggest asking your doc about a "chemo vacation". I've had several during my 4 years of treatment. I also encourage you to seek out a support group, or even better, some meditation and arts workshops where you can address your issues. This journey is never easy, but we need each other and all the support we can get. My thoughts are with you!!
