I've recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, early stages only and all cut out (2 surgeries, lumpectomy) with nothing moved to lymph node. However, due to type of cancer the medico's are telling me I need chemo plus radio plus pill. I wanted to post here to hear anyone's views about looking at alternative treatment rather than the chemo? It's just such an invasive procedure, and, in my case, its for risk prevention so I'm wondering if others would look at an alternative before embarking on putting poison into every single cell in their body?
Would love to hear your comments, happy to receive criticism as well!
I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis with breast cancer.
In all the time (years) that I've been frequenting the Cancer Council online community, I only occasionally hear someone asking about alternative treatments.
Usually the cancer council will refer to them as complementary therapies, that complement evidenced based medical treatment. https://www.cancer.org.au/cancer-information/treatment/complementary-therapies
If you are going to consider taking of any other medication it is extremely important that you make your treatment team/doctors aware of what you are taking.
All the best,
