We all have the right to accept or refuse any or all treatment that is recommended. I don't think it is a wise decision since you did have positive nodes. You don't state your reason for only taking part of the treatment that has been recommended but I hope it's a good one.  I would like to know why you are choosing to only have one part of the Chemotherapy.    Regards .....
