My friend had colon cancer treatment last year (Feb-Oct) for stage III disease. He's had a colonoscopy in Jan of 2003 and he was disease-free. He went to his oncologist last week and they said all is well so far. They did blood tests. Now he doesn't see his oncologist for another 3 months. Is this typical followup treatment? Should they be doing more? His oncologist said that my friend will know if something's wrong and if he has pain. Isn't that too late to do more tests? Shouldn't they be doing CT scans and CEA levels more often? Please let me know what your post followup treatment was. My friend is only 27, so I have great concern for his safety.
