Time between chemo and radiation
My mom has gone through 13 sessions of Folfirinox and was found to have had a complete metabolic response. We went to Mayo a little under a month ago to explore surgical options, but due to the extent of arterial involvement, my mom was deemed inoperable. Mayo recommended that she start radiation along with chemo pills.
To be close to family and friends, my mom opted to have radiation locally. It's been almost 4 weeks since her last chemo treatment and we still have not had a date scheduled for her first radiation session due to insurance delays. Though there did not seem to be any cancer activity in her body 3 weeks ago when she was at Mayo, I am worried about this delay in treatment. Ideally she would start next week at the latest, but what if she has to wait another week? How long of a wait is okay?
