Hello, It's been a while since my last post. Diagnosed 4/08 stage III colon cancer, 1 out of 18 nodes positive. Surgery, then 8 months treatment. My last colonoscopy was 1/27/09. according to me I'm due for one. I have a family history of HNPCC (hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer). I've tested positive. My doctors told me Friday that I'm not scheduled for one again for 4/5 years. I'm pretty upset about that. I'm going to insist on 1 every year. Am I being overly concerned, or am I right for insisting on a colonoscopy yearly for at least the first 5 years post surgery? Thanks for listening.
