Re: Start days for radiotherapy

I start mine august and already have the plan. Mine start midweek on a wednesday and the aug bank hol I dont have any rads.my last rads finishes on a wed too..Dont think it matters , ive also heard that rads continue to work upto 10 days after a session so weekends and the odd bank hol monday wont make much of a difference. Ive just had my little black dot tattoos  put in place today reafy for rads. All the  best.

Re: Start days for radiotherapy

Hi Stat
I started on a Thursday and I had 2 bank holidays over Easter. I did not have Radiotherapy on bank holidays which was quite nice having an extended weekend break. It really depends on when your treatment starts. It will go really quickly once you start.

Start days for radiotherapy

I always thought that rads were Mon to Friday for 3 weeks (altho I gather it's sometimes 4 weeks). I have heard that sometimes they start mid week. Has anyone experience of this or what happens if there is a Bank Holiday in the middle?
Thank goodness I discovered this forum!!!
