Topic: Does anyone not choose surgery?
I'm still in that newly diagnosed category and struggling.
My question is this: is there anyone out there who was able to have the surgery but chose not to?
I know that it's considered a godsend to be able to have the surgery, and know that so many folks are not able to have it by the time the CC is caught.
But surgery isn't a cure as we know -- and everyone faces the possibility that after waking from this horrible surgery you will be told that they couldn't get it all.
Given the on-going awfulness of post-surgery life (versus the eventual awfulness of non-surgery life) -- is there an argument to be made for foregoing surgery?
Just wondered. There are many thoughtful people on this site and I am sure this has been contemplated before.
Peace to all,
