My mother is currently having chemo for breast cancer. She is just about to finish her current round of chemo which she's been having every 3 weeks, she then moves on to a different dose which she has weekly for 12 weeks then radiation daily for 6 weeks. She is due to finish treatment about 4 weeks before I had been planning to get married. I am considering postponing it until next March for her benefit. I haven't booked much and wouldn't lose any money if I did. Just wondering if people could tell me from experience what state she would be expected to be in 4 weeks post treatment as opposed to 4 months? I know everyone is different but I'd like to have some idea of what to expect. I am really close to my mum and would love it if she had the energy to enjoy the day. Thanks for any advice!.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

The condition / prognosis depends upon the stage and grade of the cancer/ tumor. If its stage 1 well differentiated tumor then the aggressiveness would be low and prognosis would be better.

Advance stage disease, high grade tumor, naturally would require more aggressive chemo and hence the morbidity would also be greater.

Wishing you best of health
