    Opposite.

    To me, it feels opposite. By worrying with the scans and thinking about the scans, THAT seems like the cancer is controlling me.

    That is letting it control

    That is letting it control you mentally, you can get help with that and it does get easier. Why did you bother with surgery if you were just going to let it go?

    Let it go.

    I didn't let it go, I had surgery and got it fixed. Great, now that song is stuck in my head.

    Its a roll of the dice...............

    I went 5 years without rcc returning on me, on what was going to be my last scan (5 year mark) , they found rcc lung mets. Had them surgically removed and all is good again. Ive read of others going 10 years before it showed back up. Or you could be lucky like my step dad he went over 30 years and rcc never showed back up on him, but he had scans every year. Good luck with whatever you choose.

    An interesting approach

    It's like Schroedinger's cat.

    You can call it Schroedingers's cancer: Until you have the scans (look inside the box) you both; Have cancer and; Don't have cancer. 

    It's not until you take a look that either answer is true. So, if you don't have the scans, you can't truly say that you have cancer.

     

    P.S. Who's the little goofball in your profile picture? She looks like she's having fun with you.

    You have consulted the Oracle!

    No, seriously, do take all these wise opinions in consideration CRashter.   And I am sure we all get your point of view.  Nevertheless... follow-ups is what we choose.

    Hunter

    As a young man, I read quote a bit of Dr. Thompson's work. Old Crow, his preferred whiskey became my preferred whiskey. That stuff is rough. I was joking around with some buddies and we supposed that is what happened to me. The crow was so rough, it bypassed my liver and went straight for my kidney.

    Here is a Post I copied from

    Here is a Post I copied from one of the Kidney Cancer survivir Facebook groups.

     

    I had my bout with kidney cancer in 2011, they got it all at that time, I went for the first couple of follow up visits and then somehow convinced myself not to go back, big mistake, now I have lung cancer and they are offering hospice already, I just got the results of the biopsy today, I also had a pet scan today because they want to make sure it hasnt spread to other areas, I was fine for 6 years and may have lived a normal life span had I continued going to the dr. Please keep all of your follow up appointments and follow dr orders so you can live a long life.
