Hi everybody, I am set to have my last taxol treatment on Monday, the 7th. A day that I have been looking forward to since I started chemo seven months ago. I was told that all kinds of tests would be run after chemo was over and then depending on the results either more chemo or I would be given the ok to start radiation. Well my doctor told me at my last visit that there are no tests that he can do. He's sure the cancer is gone and there is no test for cancer determination????? I am confused--why do some people have follow-up testing and some people don't? Do you think he is keeping something from me? Please reply with your thoughts, thanks and god bless.
