PFCCR - Keep in mind a lot of people do SOC not just to push survivability, but to control cancer pain symptoms. When you start having cancer pain you might sing a different tune. You are so early in this process and have a lot of options available to you. Listen to your doctors, we all know going into this cancer might not be curable but even with the nasty effects of treatment you can still have a good Quality of Life. When I get treatment it sucks and it beats me down for 5-6 days and hits horrible, but then for about 2.5 weeks after that I am more normal and feel better.
