I had my ct scan yesterday and dr. stated NED! Thank you Lord. However, because I have had bleeding during bm a few times in the last 3 weeks he wants me to see a colo-rectal surgeon. He said I should have been seeing cr doc. all along and this is just a precautionary measure. I told him I had colonoscopy in August but he said this doctor would be able to see more should there be any cancer that was too small for detection on ct scan and colonoscopy to old to count on. He also moved me out farther for next ct scan which I was not happy about. I am 27 months out from treatment. I had ct scans every 3 months for a year, then it went to 4 months, next one 6 months, now 8 months. I think because I was stage 4 I should have scans, at the very least, every 6 months. I was wondering how often others get scans that were late stage and around 2 years since treatment. I asked him if cancer did come back, could it be through my whole body before next ct scan and he said yes. That bothers me.
