    Sort of a survey ~ How far do you have to travel from home for your treatments?

    How far, one way do you drive?
    Are you going daily, weekly, every 2 weeks, etc?
    Chemo, Radiation, or both?

      32 miles each way, which given the Southern California traffic (405 freeway) takes 1-1/2 to 2 hours each way. When I had chemo and radiation (25 days) it was a daily trek; now it's every three months, 3 trips for blood work, CT, and oncologist. (Not including trips for unrelated health care: monitoring of other cancers, lupus, wet macular degeneration, and life.)

      2-1/2 hrs. to and from. This month it’s three trips but usually it’s one trip. Winter is very tense driving.
