Does anyone have any information concerning how the Medical Oncologists and Radiation Oncologists calculate the dose and number of treatments? I have tried to extract this information from my two doctors, but have received somewhat of a "are you questioning me, the Doctor" response. Is it a coincidence that there are so many 30-35 treatment periods--almost regardless of the type of cancer,etc? Please help me to regain my confidence in a treatment system where I am now starting to suffer the side effects.
