chemo waiting times

December 20, 2017 - 17:19

Hello, I wanted to know what are the waiting times for chemo, my dad was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, stage 3, Oct 31st he hasn't received any chemo , today Dec 21st he had his first information session and it looks like he won't receive chemo until mid January so was wondering if this is normal? Thanks, Bridget
