Justakid Posted November 3, 2004 Share Posted November 3, 2004 My Onco told me Monday that she would only be doing xrays like once a year. I'm confused, doesn't it make more sense to catch a possible tumor when it's smaller then bigger? Because of the reoccurance rate shouldn;t we be checked every 3 months? That doesn't feel like monitoring me closely! SHe listened to my chest and sent me away for 3 months. Needless to say I am very uncomfortable with this! I see my GP in a few weeks (he is nursing me back to health and is the one who initially caught the tumor), I'm discussing this with him. This seems unacceptable to me when there is only a 30% chance that this will not occur. I'd rather have a chest xray every month for the next 4 years till I can be declared cured! Of course I'm over reacting, but what has happened with you guys? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
