We have consulted several oncologists and realize that nearly every one is involved in a clinical trial of some kind. Has anyone heard of a new profocol where Stage II and III patients will have 6 weeks of chemo first, then 6 weeks of chemo/radiation prior to having surgery? What has been your experience? How well was the 12 weeks of chemo tolerated? Was the healing period between the end of chemo/radiation and surgery lengthened because of the additional weeks of treatment? How long was surgery ultimately delayed?
