Hi, I don't post often, but read the discussions a few times a week and often scroll through the archives.
I am three weeks post surgery today (colon resection for stage 3 rectal cancer along with a complete hysterectomy. My surgeon had indicated that it would probably be about 2 months after surgery that I would start 12 rounds of folfox, but my onc. is ready to start next Monday (4 weeks post-surgery).
They are both great doctors and I know they are planning on talking before all of this starts, but I was wondering what the average time was between surgery and chemo for people on this list.
