I am happy that it worked out well for you. I know there are people who make it through chemo without lasting problems. I was fine until after my second round and then everything went off the tracks. I don't know if I would have still agreed to chemo if I had seen the articles about some Drs being chemo happy, and some Drs being too alarmist about Stage 1 breast cancer.<quoted text>
Not to me, because I'm alive and I didn't have to be.
I do know that for me the problems during and after have been bad. And they are not improving. I don't know if given the opportunity if I would trade where I am now for 3 years of relatively pain free living - but I do know that quality of life has some meaning for me.
