I had 'mental fog' & fatigue weeks before my seizure, which led to my diagnosis. (GBM)

I can answer this very easily BECAUSE CHEMOTHERAPY makes the CANCER REAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I was fine with the double masectomy, even my breast cancer diagnoses at age 44, the drains pain and all. But once they told me i have to have chemo, I lost it....all rational thoughts were gone....I did not want to do it, and even though i am doing it ( i was told i must) I hate it so much, it makes you depressed, sad , in a lot of pain and of course it messes with your head. If it doesnt there is something wrong with you. I would rather have another surgery than chemo.
