Welcome, Debbie. First, don't research on the internet! Listen to your doctors. Yes, get another opinion. I had 33 days of radiation with no problems at all. Just a minor sunburn at the very end (which is quite normal). I also had 4 months of chemo (every two weeks).
This is a very personal decision. All of us are different. I didn't want to look at myself in the mirror years down the road and wish I had taken advantage of every single thing offered to kill those last cancer cells. Having said that, even with surgery, chemo and radiation, it can still return. BUT, the chance is significantly reduced.
Hope that helps.
HUGS and prayers to you.
