When does gastric cancer chemo start after a gastrectomy? 1Rangarao Rangaraju asked 5 months ago

After surgery any planned treatment of radiotherapy or chemotherapy should start around four to six weeks later depending upon the recovery of the patient. Provided the chemotherapy is required which will be advised by the treating medical or surgical oncologist. Better to have the tumour board discussion or multi-disciplinary meeting and discuss the whole management with them. All the questions are best answered in that session.
