Can you see an oncologist at an NCI designated cancer center, if you haven't already? I'd trust that opinion more. In my experience those centers are more familiar with how to treat breast cancer in younger women - it is a little different for us.
As for chemo, it must ultimately be your decision. If there truly is only a 1% benefit to doing chemo, it might not be worth the potential damage that chemo causes. On the other hand, if you're more comfortable knowing you did more treatment, that's also a a factor.
I did a lot of chemo, and sometimes it didn't even work well, but it did cause some lasting damage. It's a hard situation, but I hope you find some answers here. Best wishes!
