Chels74 Posted November 16, 2007 Share Posted November 16, 2007 Well the first dose of chemo went well. She had her blood counts checked Wed. and they were great!! She and her oncologist spoke with the lady at UT Southwestern who handles the clinical trials (was actually mom's oncologist's teacher). She believes that mom would really benefit from concurrent chemo and radiation. Basically saying, she's young and healthy, let's hit it with everything we can. So, mom starts radiation treatments (everyday for 6 weeks) on 11/27, the day after her next chemo appointment. I have a very positive feeling about this. I was wondering why no one had really mentioned radiation, other then to say it might be a possibility after she finishes chemo. The new treatment feels more proactive to me.
