Radio therapy

Just got treatment plan for my husbands advanced rectal tumour... Long term radiotherapy and chemo with a hope to shrink tumour for operation, so I feel a bit more hopeful.

Glad you have a plan @mandajayne, so is that radio for 5 weeks with chemo tablets? My husband had just one week of radio and it blasted the tumour, so heres hoping your husband has a good response, take care :x::x::x:
