My husband (32 years old) finished his AML treatment at the end of September after 5 rounds of chemo. He's fianlly in complete molecular remission. His cells were growing back very slowly but they are growing. First he was seen every week for blood tests. Now every month. Doctor said that after 6 months, his blood will be checked every 3 months. However, my question is, won't he be requiring another examination and check him molecularly? How can we know that the cancer is not coming back? What are the chances of it coming back if he was normal karyotype and had NPM1 and FLT3-TKD mutations.
