Depending on what kind of treatment is planned, maybe you could 'have your cake and eat it too' (for example, if your husband was going to be put on GTX; he could start the Xeloda pills and you would have to make sure you were back in time for the first infusion of Taxotere and Gemcitabine). My husband was off treatment for almost 3 months (very, very dangerous!) due to various circumstances. The cancer did spread, but in his case, he did feel like he gained strength while having the break from chemo and radiation. I would never, never, purposely 'take a break' for that long but I would likely go on the honeymoon and put treatment off a week if I had to. What does your husband want to do?
