    Chemotherapy and radiation combined

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My mother is having a port placed next week, and will begin her first round of chemo at the end of next week. Her doctors think chemo and radiation combined would be too hard side effect wise, so they are going to try chemo first then reassess/add radiation.
