Thanks for your concern Melodie
There are no dates set in stone it sounds like the treatment schedules are pretty similar to the ones you experienced .It may be that the holidays will hold things up but I dont really know is the obvious answer.
My next appointment with my specialist is at the beginning of November and I suppose I will get to know more then.Its all really still sinking in and still feels as if its happening to someone else although this round of chemotherapy has made me feel pretty ill.

Gay,

I'm not familiar with the details of your story but am a little bothered by the idea of you waiting 2 months after chemo to go into surgery...if that is the plan. I had stage 3 and my cancer was on the aggressive side so was given 3 months of chemo...I was told I needed between 3 and 4 cycles of chemo...as I went along, it turned out they felt 3 cycles were enough. I "thought" I had a month to recover before the docs would have me in surgery, but I was wrong. They had me into surgery 2 wks. later. I think doing it that way made the RC tougher on me than it would have been otherwise, but I trusted their sense of urgency in getting the surgery done. So, just wondering if 2 months is a longer than standard wait for most...or is it looking that way because of the holidays. Best wishes for continued strength during the chemo sessions. Take care.

Thanks
I am not that good at keeping upto date with this but things are going ok .
I am coping pretty well according to all sources I had my second dose of my second treatment on Friday which wiped me out all weekend .I finally gave in last week and shaved what was left of my hair which was traumatic but feels better.
