I can't discuss why, but I want a test to make sure I'm still cancer free. I had stage 3c in 2009, finished treatment in early 2010. Mast., chemo, rads, and am now on Tamoxafin. I never had any extensive tests done, except a bone scan (did you know that the magnets in the scanner made the fillings loose in a few of my teeth? Ah, cancer, the gift that keeps on giving!:)
so, I want one test to show that I'm still NED. My doc has said he's not all for expensive tests, but I have good insurance...which I hardly ever use. If it were you, which test would you demand, an MRI or PET? (oh, yeah, I had like 11 out of 13 lymph nodes involved).
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
