    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?

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

      I'm 5 miles each way. I can't judge by time for several factors, but allow half an hour. I keep track of my mileage for my taxes.

      For me it's a 86 mile one way trip into NYC. On a good day (very unusual) it's a two hour drive. A normal commute is around three hours but it has been up to four hours. My appointments are always in the morning so I fight the workday commute. Going home almost always is about 2 1/2 hours.
