I just finished with chemo. I had adriomycin, taxol and finally cytoxin. I will begin radiation in one week. My doc says he will test in 7 weeks after radiation. Is that standard? I've had many people ask why then and not now. I had a bone scan, abdominal ultrasound and a cardiogram before I started chemo. Everything checked out ok. So does everyone wait for tests until after rads or have your doctors done something different. My doc is also waiting until after rads to start on tamoxifen. Is that standard also. Just curious about what other docs do. Trust my doc, but comments from others kinda make you feel like you're not doing the right thing. Thanks for any help!!
