What are the side effects of chemotherapy?

Afraid chemotherapy will make matters worse? Stage 4 cervical, originally diagnosed stage2 in 2009. Age 70, frail, weakened state. If one declines chemotherapy but pursues herbs, nutrition, what is the worst possible life expectancy? Fearful and confused!
