Customer Question

Dear Dr. David, My questions are mainly about the delayed between each step ( between chemotherapy and surgery), or (between surgery and Radiation). Will I be on the safe side if I delayed maximum of three months? Thank you

This is Dr. David
3 months is too long to delay
your cancer most likely will grow in 3 months and take away benefits from chemotherapy
you can take tamoxifen therapy for 3 months which could help slow down cancer growth for now.
but you have to take it daily for 3 months
but it is not idea
better to get chemotherapy.
