Chemotherapy is often a treatment of choice with a cancer diagnosis. However, I have read so much conflicting information about it. I found one survey that said that 80% of doctors said that they would NOT have chemotherapy as part of their cancer treatment plan if they were diagnosed with cancer. I have also seen other reports that chemo has a less than 3% success rate (which of course depends on a number of variables, but generally-speaking, the treatment is not very effective). Does anyone have any thoughts on this or personal experiences? I ask because a close family member of mine has recently been diagnosed with cancer and since they began chemo, their overall health has really seemed to decline.
