I had a hepatic resection over 3 years after my Stage III dx for colon cancer. That was over 2 years ago and I'm on an every 6 month follow up. I called the ACS and asked what they recommended as follow up. They're going to send me something in the mail saying it depends on so many different things.
Tell me your time out from surgery and...
How often do you have your CEA drawn? Mine has always been done before my CT scan because the hospital or radiologist requires that.
How often are you scanned and what type scans?
Does your oncologist say you will be considered cured 5 years or 10 years after HR?
Anything else you might think to add?
