Don't refuse chemo. I know you are afraid right now but it's not nearly as bad as you think. I was stage 2A with clear margins and negative nodes. I was really afraid of chemo and about to refuse it. There was a lady on this site who had a recurrence. She was in her final stages and told me she wished she had done everything they advised. She told me to take the treatment while it was an option and not a requirement to save my life. I will always remember her words. Now that it is over I am so glad that I did everything I could to make sure it doesn't return. Even if something happens later in life I will always know that I did my part. Treatment for stage 2 is not that bad..... it's not easy but it's definitely doable.
Blessings to you as you make your decisions!
