Would you rather die from complications from surgery battling cancer Watch
Or not do anything about it and let it get worse to the point where you eventually die later on?
At the end of the day I think that's a choice everybody had to make for themselves. If you're dealing with a choice like that yourself you might find it helps to talk it through with someone. I think macmillan have support services for this sort of thing or you could also ask GP or whoever manages your care to help set you up with somebody to talk to. It probably sounds pretty cold, but ultimately it comes down to pros and cons just like anything else in life. You need to think about what you personally have to gain and what you have to loose and what matters most out of all of that. For some people it's the chance at extra time with family, for some it's comfort, for some it's having a level of preguctability and ability to prepare. It's all individual to each person and I think that's where having an impartial person to talk things through with can really help.
The other option is you just give in and eventually die.
It's a no brainer for me I'm afraid.
