Hi Andy, sorry to hear your wife is having a horrid time. I had a Hickman line inserted for my chemo and it made everything much quicker. From my experience as a patient I would say not to worry about any delays. Chemo is cumulative, and the effects last a long long time after the final dose. Remember also, that it is an adjuvant therapy, and that your wife is currently free of cancer as the tumours have been removed . This is just an extra to kill off stray cells. Good luck to you both.

I'm sorry to hear you and your wife are going through this at the moment. As you haven't had a reply from the community yet, do feel free to call our breast care nurses to discuss this on 0808 800 6000.
