Hi Marci:

I believe the standard treatment now is for radiation with concurrent weekly chemo. The chemo is low dose but studies have shown that this protocol is more effective than radiation and then chemo. When radiation is over she will probably go to a stronger dose of chemo. Good Luck and God Bless

I was originally diagnosed IIIA. I had same treatment, low dose weekly chemo for 6 weeks with concurrent radiation 33 treatments. then surgery, then stronger dose of chemo.

Andrea is accurate that some surgeons do not like to operate after too much radiation. My surgeon actually told me he does these all the time after radiation and doesn't find it difficult.
