I had them all checked almost once a month until they were suppressed and under control. Once I got my Levothyroxine at a correct dose it went to every 3 months until my endocrinologist was satisfied with a level of consistency and stability... and now I get it them tested every 6 months. I really think it depends on your specific case / how picky your doc is / if you've had a reocurrence before or if your doc thinks it's metastisizing... But I could be wrong lol
Hope that made some sense. :)
