i need to ask a question that i hope some of you can answer.i was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer that had spread to 10 of 15 lymph nodes.i had surgery and 6 months of chemo.that was 3 yrs. ago and so far,everything is fine.my question is this.my oncologist sees me every 6 months and my blood is tested every 3 months for my cea count.is there anything else i should be doing as a preventative measure? i realize that it's been 3 yrs. and so far so good,but my oncologist (who i trust completely)says no.any thoughts? may god bless all cancer patients and their caregivers!
