I can only tell you what happened to me.
At my appointment I was told what drug regime I would be on, I was given leaflets & told to look on Macmillans website as they have an a-z list of chemo & their side effects.
i signed a consent form, a couple of days later I had a port put in and a week after initial appointment, chemo started.
I would consider your timeline you had your op in June & chemo is due to start in Sept almost. 3 month wait, I had my op in the August & started chemo in Sept.
i was desperate to start treatment as I was scared of spread so I would have cancelled a holiday but I know of others that delayed treatment & went.
this is something you should discuss at your appointment, personally I'd postpone the holiday, it'll be something to look forward to.
best of luck x
Hello there....I'm new to this site so bare with me! I had a lumpectomy and lymph node removal on 27 June. Lymph node clear and clear margins on lumpectomy but because I was Stage 3 Oncotype Dx test sent away coming back at 27. Oncologist and Consultant have decided it's best for me to have chemo and radio. Have my first meeting with Oncologist on 14 September...what will happen at this appointment and how soon after will my treatment start? Have booked a holiday for 18 Sept as working on assumption it's better to go before I start treatment and need to get away!!! Me and my husband run a village pub so not sure how I'm gonna cope with doing that once treatment starts 😳
