Lumpectomy and lymph node op end of June - how long roughly before chemo can start?
Hiya 6 weeks ish xx I think xx
Hiya had a mx 5 weeks last Thursday and starting FEC-T this thursday so will be exactly 6 weeks. xx
Hiya had mx on Nov 18th & 1st chemo Dec 15th
good luck & take care
Started my chemo 6 wks after WLE, but waited 2 weeks for node biopsy results the 4 weeks for chemo.
Nah then, are you from Sheffield being a doodaa lass? Or is it a different term?
Had my lumpectomy / node removal 16th May and started chemo 14th June, so in my case 4 weeks between.
I had mastectomy and LD flap recon (no node clearance) and had my first chemo 4 weeks later. I think it depends on individual circumstances and how your surgeon and oncologist feel you are healing after surgery.
Good luck with your treatment
