During my one year check-up, my surgeon asked me about my treatments; how I did with them, who my oncologist was etc. (he didn't know I had not gone through with it). I told him I opted for an alternative treatment. It was a form of chemo but very low dose followed by vitamins.

He didn't agree with what I had done and insisted that I needed to do chemo – traditional chemo that is. He said if I didn't, that the chances of the cancer coming back were 60%. I felt like a child because my decision to go through IPT was not approved.

It didn't matter. I stood by my choice.
