Hi, I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer 6 years ago. I went through chemo before and after surgery. I lost my left breast. After chemo I went through a long bout of radiation. I can't believe what this doctor said to you. Do not let it enter your mind because he is not God. My God talk about taking away all hope. Believe you can make it. Find a different Doctor. Don't be afraid to let this doctor know how you feel about him. I told my first Oncology doctor that I hated his Guts and felt good about it. Believe me there is nothing that says this will kill you. I see that your post was four years ago and I would love to know how you are doing.View Thread
