The CyberKnife Patient Forum is designed to provide a place for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends, to exchange useful information and provide support to one another. The Forum may also help people find answers to questions they have about the CyberKnife treatment experience. Accuray strives to facilitate these exchanges and encourage discussions. Recently we have experienced some aggressive or inappropriate spam postings. We are diligently working to resolve this issue and thank you in advance for your patience.

Finally starting 5 treatments after 2 week delay for holidays at UPMC in PA. My days are Tues, Thur, Mon, Wed, Fri. Does the 3 day break between treatments 2 and 3 instead of 2 days matter or am I concerned about nothing?

No problem, IMO. You will still be getting hypofractionization during each treatment and the same total dose. I had the same schedule, BTW. Jim V.
