      Yes of course. If you are on a 3 week cycle, it makes no difference when the month starts and ends, you will still be scheduled for chemo every 21 days. Some months that will be once and others it will be twice.

      yes....its not by the month but the number of days in the cycle....so if its every 21 days, its possible to have it twice in a calendar month......When I was going through chemo my schedule was every 3 weeks (21 days) and I had it twice in one calendar month because I had it on the 4th and then 21 days later....All the best to you....

      I just finished the TCH regime--that carboplatin is nasty stuff! I did best when I drank a LOT of water after chemo, particularly after the "c". Good luck.
