I'm wondering how long you waited after surgery before starting radiation? I have 3 more weekly Taxols to go, and, if those don't get delayed, then have surgery (lumpectomy) scheduled for the last Thursday in June. Have any of you started radiation as early as 3 weeks and 3 days after surgery? I'm trying to figure out if I can get done with radiation (6 weeks) before a trip we had planned for September. My MO says that with me being Triple Negative, I can't wait til after the trip for the radiation and the radiation can't be broken up. So, do you think it is likely to work out starting the radiation as I said above and finishing just 1 week before leaving on a trip? Will I be recovered from the radiation? I know everyone is different, but if you could share your experience with me, it would be helpful. As always, thanks for being here!
