I had pre-op chemotherapy

I chose to have pre-op chemotherapy and be on a clinical trial, and that was a big decision to make also. Had my mother been able to be a part of a clinical trial, maybe it wouldn't have been so difficult these days. I really didn't want to be a pre-op chemotherapy patient, but then I had done some research and found that in the majority of the cases the tumor did decrease in size. So when they called me and told me that I was on the pre-op arm, I was ecstatic. I had started my treatment right away after that.
