Just got my quarterly CT scan this morning and will have the results tomorrow. If everything is OK my wife and I are taking our two Dalmatians to Sullivan’s Irish Pub in Carlsbad, because they allow dogs outside at the fire pit, and we’ll have a couple of nice, big Guinness Stouts. My Oncologist tells me that if the cancer returns then in 90% of the cases it happens within one year of the last treatment. My resection was in May, 2009, but my Oncologist is counting from my last Chemo treatment, which was in April, 2010. Have any of you heard about this 90% figure and when it applies, after surgery or after Chemo?
