Does anyone have good ways to handle anxiety that comes with quarterly visits to the oncologist and yearly MRI scans?

I have just recently finished my chemo and am beginning to do the quarterly visits. My Dr. said that I could get a CA 125 every month if it would reduce my anxiety. I have done that and it does. See if your Dr. will let you do a monthly CA 125. (MIne said that more often than that is a waste.)

Hi,
If you get some good answers to your excellent question could you pass them on to me. I have the same concern.
Thank you.
