treatment timetable

My meeting with the oncologist on Thursday got a few things straight(er) in my head about the course of treatment for me.
 
  1. Chemo – 8 treatments, 3 weeks apart
  2. Radiation – length to be determined, but usual case is 5 days a week for about 1 hour per day for up to 5 weeks
  3. Surgery
  4. Evaluation if more chemo/radiation required
 
If I continue to be good on chemo and have it as scheduled, my last chemo is January 8th. There is a 3 to 4 week period before radiation starts….5 weeks later, that puts me in March for surgery and about 6 weeks off after that.
 
Huh. That means that I will be ending this ordeal about the same time I discovered the change in my breast. Talking about coming full circle.
