I'm currently receiving my third round of chemo (three day treatments) and have tolerated it very well, but after this round I will be getting at least 25 rounds of radiation which will push my next chemo until late December at the earliest and more likely January. Apparently I will have to wait three weeks after this round of chemo to start radiation and another three weeks after radiation to start chemo and then we got the holidays so who knows how that will disrupt things. It seems like my chemo treatment is being sabatoged by taking this break. The chemo nurses were quick to point out that I might avoid some of the side effects of chemo because of this break, but I look at those side effects as a sign the chemo is working.
Can someone help me see why this is a good thing.
