  • How long of a wait is acceptable between positive CT and chemotherapy?

    Hi there,

    I have a friend who relapsed at his first surveillance visit following a pure EC diagnosis a couple months ago. His blood work remains normal, but his most recent follow-up CT reveals a 1.2CM x 1.4CM RPLN.

    This positive CT was taken July 6th; he found out the results July 9th; has one more follow-up meeting July 28th; and is expected to start BEPx3 around August 3rd. As a TC survivor myself, I know this was caught early and prognosis is very good.

    He's a bit concerned, however, about the wait time for treatment, as it'll be just under a month from findings to treatment. He lives in Canada and doesn't have much say in his choice of clinic or oncologist. Should he be concerned about the waiting period?
