Last week Iwrote about the fact that my oncologist had said that there would be no monitoring when i finish treatment next month. Well, i saw him yesterday and was ready to do battle! There had obviously been a misunderstanding because he said that i would initially be seen three months after my last treatment, then every six months. I couldn't understand how it could have misheard last time, as i had the same friend with me, and she had heard him say no follow up too. Anyway, the monitoring would be a physical exam only. Can a recurrence be picked up by feeling a tummy? I was not very happy and pushed for regular CA testing, which he did agree to but said that he didn't advise.
All in all, i am happy with the outcome. I had really been stressing this last week.
Many thanks for being there to listen.
