We did radiation first, so I am not sure if it is the same, since I believe radiation inhibits healing more than temodar alone.  For us it was 6 weeks before we started.

Usually they start a month after surgery. We started seven weeks after. But I think a month is standard.

They are starting my husband 3 weeks after surgery.   His scar from surgery has not healed yet.  The doctors wanting to start so soon after has me worried, I don't think they are telling us everything.
