I just want to share others experiences of follow-up care for pancreatic cancer. I was diagnosed 18 months ago with stage IIB, had surgery followed by 6 months of Gemzar. Since surgery all tests have come back normal. Whoopee!!
Now my onc is seeing me every 3-4 months but without any tests being done - no scan, no bloods. He seems to think that while I look & feel fine then all is good & I shouldn't have the worry of waitin for the test results. Plus, he said, that should they find mets, there won't be much they can do for me anyway long term.
What experiences have others got?
