I had my resection of primary colon tumor and liver mets and also RFA to two small tumors in July- Aug of 2012.
After that I was on maintenance chemo of erbitux solo for 12 rounds and the opinion of the oncologist was that we take the wait and watch approach and finish the erbitux solo maintenance first, and then do the scans. and take a call on further treatment based on the CT-PET done after completion of the maintenance chemo.
The maintenance erbitux got over 2 weeks ago. In a week or so I will be getting the CT-PET done. I am based in India And had my resection and RFA done in Germany. The german doctor who did the RFA is now of the opinion that even if the CT PET scan is clear I should go ahead with RFA to the tumor "scars".
Is that so ? Can anyone throw some more light on this opinion? Any suggestions and advise welcome!
