The other day Staceye was talking about follow-up scans....since she and I have the same Oncologist...and go to the same ENT's office, I suggested that we ask about them at the ENT's since she was getting no where with the Onc. Well....I had an appointment with the ENT, and mentioned that tho the Onc had scheduled my 3 month followup, he said nothing about a 6 month one....I asked him, don't I need another PET at 6 months? He said no...that as long as I'm seeing him every month, the "something/something board" (I didn't catch that part) doesn't deem PET scans necessary after the 3 month one.
So now, I'm thinking....wait a minute...EVERYBODY else's Dr.'s "deem them necessary"...how come they don't up here in po-dunk Montana???
So when you guys say you're 6 months NED, or 9 months NED....are you getting scans as well as examed by the ENT? He hasn't even used the scope in months on me, just mirrors. This all makes me a tad nervous.
