I finished TX on Jan 10th. I have several questions about followup TX
I have already been to see RAD ONC 2 weeks after TX ended and was told all looks great, i am healing well and they want to see me again in 4 months (is this appt necessary)
or I am just going to go there and they will say yup you have some nice scars there--have a nice day.
I am waiting for scheduling of appt for a CT scan should be in the next 2 weeks so i have results prior to appt with chemo Dr the 1st week of March
and then I have appt with Colon Rectal Dr the 2nd week in March.
How many Dr's do I need to follow up with?
is it necessary to see the RadOnc again?
Is it necessary to see the chemo Dr again?
I know that my co-pays are going to start kicking back in 60 days after TX---
I was under the impression that I should have 1 Dr keep tabs on me---and presumed it should be the colon rectal guy
and not have to go to all the appointments---AFTER my preliminary followup appointment
Thank You all so much for your posts, your information/experiences have been invaluable as i have gone on this journey
I have used many of your tips and advice as I struggled through this and I have no idea how I would have done it without you all
