Hello everyone. I havent posted in a while but now I have a question about scans. I had a full left robotic assisted nephrectomy in April for RCC. stage 2 grade 1. My urologist has scheduled me for a lower body scan on July 23rd. My oncologist has also scheduled me for one on Oct 5th. Im not sure if I should have them so close together or not? (I dont think either office knew what the other had scheduled) I called and spoke to both and they are looking into it. My concern, though, is that both scans are for lower abdomen ONLY. I would think I would be getting a full body scan to make sure nothing had metestizised to my lungs or anywhere eles. Is it normal to get just a lower scan? What has everyone eles gotten as their first scan?
