Peace, not pain

I understand how you feel about not going through chemo again. It's a horrible thing; only those who have been through it understand how awful and exhausting it is. Ovarian cancer is a really tough beast to kill. I was about 48 when I was recovering from the chemo effects. I told my 91 year old mother, just before she died, that I didn't think I could do it again if it came back elsewhere. She didn't understand. I think you'll find that many, or some, people might disagree with your decision. But it's your body, and your wishes should be respected. Live or die in peace, but not in pain.
