I had surgery on 1st April and 7th May. I start my 25 Rads this Thursday, 30th, almost three months after surgery.
I had surgery on 23 March and rads started on 28 April....Onc was keen to keep to 31 day directive as closely as possible but I am certain had I not been healed sufficiently rads would have been delayed. I had bilateral therapeutic mammoplasty, pretty major stuff to both breasts and was very well healed in that time and only had one tiny niggling area underneat that broke down during treatment. I have been very lucky to be textbook so far.
Mine started 8 weeks post op, This allowed for scars to heal and gave me a little breather in between. Told it has no impact on recurrennce. Hope this helps, Shell
I had my op 4th March and started rads 13th May, that was last year.
About 10 weeks and that seemed to be about the norm at our hospital but it does seem to vary from hospital to hospital.
