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,
