I've recently been looking for another Dr to handle my follow up testing. The Dr that did the surgery has only ordered an ultrasound and chest xray, which seems like a light follow up.
Stage 1 5.0 cm - right kidney
I have been speaking with Urology/ Oncology dept's in a few institutions and it's funny how some think I need a CT w xray, bloodwork, etc every 3 months, and others follow some protocol for a T1b tumor that say a CT every 12 months.
How can these be so different?
