Nope. Just about right. My surgery was tne end of July 03 and radiation started Oct 3rd.

That sounds about right. I started the preparations for radiation about 6 weeks after surgery. By the time all the simulations and things were done, I was right around seven weeks out from surgery when the actual treatments began.

Perhaps you have a little more healing to do. Radiation might interfere with healing, so if you aren't where he thinks you should be, the extra couple of weeks might be necessary.

Good luck,
Sharon
