Hello all, my 1st coming 3 months check up has scheduled in this coming Jun, it will be chest x ray and ultra sounds on the abdomen/bladder then follow up with Ctscan 6 month post surgery.
I've been reading some posts here, looks like some of you have 6months or 1 year check up. Try to get some understanding what kind of normal/standard procedures during the check up?
Is chest x ray so important? What are the risks to have it more than once chest x ray per year? I remember vividly, my GP strongly against to have chest x ray perform on me prior to my surgery, in fact, he insisted not to do it and called it off. He said if I have anything in my lung, then, I died, it's pretty harsh for me, I almost cry out loud in front of him, especially that was the time when I tried to prepare myself going through what I need to get It done for my surgery in Feb.
Just a quick background of me, if you have no idea who am I. I have my right kidney removed due to RCC stage 1 clear cell, grade 2 5cm. All cancer cells were contained in that kidney,, no treatment or medication after that, this is my 5th week post surgery.
Sorry for I am pretty new in this forum, not sure this topic has been discussed. Any information or help is highly appreciated.
