I agree with Roseanne. Please consider your treatment options very carefully. I know your family is important, but your life is what's most important right now. Please make the best decision after considering all the information. At the end of the day, only you can decide what's best for you, but at least you will have made an informed decision.
As Roseanne mentioned, I had a wonderful cancer coach who came with me to chemo treatments, accompanied me every time I saw the MD, was there for my surgery, and talked to me anytime I felt the need to talk (which was regularly). I could have talked to 1,000 people, but not one of them would have been able to give me the kindness, compassion, and perspective that this 13 year survivor did. She was never more than a phonecall away even when she was out of town. We became very close friends and still talk at least once a week, and we see each other often. If one of your local cancer support organizations doesn't provide a cancer coach, the American Society can. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It was the single most important thing I did for myself in my 15 months of treatment.
Please keep posting and let us know how we can best support you in this.
Hugs & prayers,
