Hi WolfEE, I had WLE before chemo. I've been told that I'll start tamoxifen 2 weeks after chemo, radiotherapy will be 3-4 weeks after chemo finishes. So jump straight from one to the next. Hi Lindiloo, we've all had very different experiences of SEs of chemo. I've had minimal so far, have a furry mouth at about 4-5 days, so just brush teeth after meals to try to prevent ulcers - ask chemo dept for treatment just in case. Constipation is the other big thing for me, so I take senokot to prevent it for the 1st few weeks after treatment. I also make sure I drink 2 litres of squash/fluids a day. Hopefully you'll manage the side effects ok. Just don't let them build up, the earlier you deal with them the better/easier it will be.
