Morning there. Just to let you know that when I was in for my lumpectomy in May - one of the other ladies also had a big reunion planned with her scattered family & was worried that Radiotherapy would be slap bang in the middle of it. It was either the BCN or the surgeon (can't remember which) said - No, this disease doesn't rule us, of course you can have your holiday!. So, I don't think that you've anything to worry about. Enjoy your break & take care xxx
PS - also in a Scottish Hospital x
I've been scrolling through the Radiotherapy topics to see if anyone has posted anything to do with having holidays or whatever previously planned and now having to have radiotherapy. I had a WLE for High Grade DCIS with clear margins on 21st Sept and I'm now waiting for a rads planning meeting and supposedly at that point I'll get a date to start. I'm due to be going away for a long weekend with my sister in mid-Nov and I understand that, with the guidelines for Scotland, that's bang when I *should* be due to start treatment. Do we have any say in being able to delay? This isn't a weekend that can be rescheduled or worked around, and I'd really like to go and not let her down, but don't know how much (if any) say we have.
I realise that this might sound a really trivial thing to be concerned about but I want to go and I do not want to let my sister down. She came up to Glasgow from Hampshire to be around for me when I had my surgery and as neither of us have families of our own, she's kind of IT family wise!
