Experiences of Chemo for mesothelioma.

Experiences of Chemo for mesothelioma.

I am an 83 yr old male with stage three Mesothelioma, and I will be seeing my Oncologist next week to discuss whether to have Chemo or not, anybody else's experiences would be appreciated.

I am very fit for my age, that is why I am being offered this, as usually I am told it is not often offered to over 80's Thanks for any replies.
