Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with stage II colon cancer March 2003. I had a scope after 6 months and then another one year later. My gastro. doctor wants me to have another one in November. I had polyps on the 6 month scope, but none a year later. He said if I don't have any polyps this time I can skip a year. What do your doctors recommend? (PS, what does NED mean?) Thanks for your advice. Arlene

    Hi Arlene, my Doc recommended the same regimen. NED means No Evidence of Disease.

    Hi, I get a sigmoid every 3-4 months and a colonoscopy every year. Peace
