You didn't mention how long ago she had the surgery. It takes at least 6 weeks to get to about 75% of where she was before the operation. Some people take a little longer than that. Generally the docs won't start chemo/rad till the patient can handle it. If you think they're pushing your mom too quickly, discuss it with them. I started chemo/rad about 7 weeks after my Whipple & actually went back to work full time after my 28 rad treatments. It was stupid of me because I came home each night absolutely wiped out & had no energy for anything else. Don't recommend that approach to anyone. My prayers are with your mom.
