I have typed you an answer 4 times and then erased each one. Mainly because I don't think any of us can answer that for you. You have to make that decision for yourself. I can suggest what I would do to find the right decision for me. I would forget about the percentage aspect. Instead, I would take a long thought out look at my life. Am I doing things daily that make me happen and make my life important to me? Is my cancer slow growing or is it the aggressive type? Do I still have many goals for my life that I haven't accomplished yet? How would I tolerate the sickness, fatigue, hair loss, possible infections, eating problems, etc. that I could expect from chemo? Do I have a solid support system in place to help me go through chemo?
These are just some of the questions you can ask yourself. I'm sure you can come up with more. The point being only you can determine if 6 percent is enough for you to take the risk. I will pray for you and stand beside you no matter what you decide. Hang tough my friend.
