Ginger, the specialist at the Mayo Clinic said 3 months for scans. The oncologist I see in my city told me scans every 4 months because he doesn’t want it “fry” me. I didn’t appreciate his remark, I think it was an attempt at humor. I ask why not scans every 6 months? No one knows when or where the cancer may or may not strike. I will have the scans. I just dread it. The surveillance game is just another difficult aspect of life as a cancer patient. The scans and blood work and appointments with physicians all part of the “package”. It’s getting old quick and I just started. I don’t see a nephrologist. I was told I don’t need one. I have the urologic surgeon, the oncologist, my PCP, my new doctor a psychiatrist, lastly I will keep the RCC oncologist from Mayo as my go to person. I am seriously thinking of moving to the city where this doctor lives. It’s a 2 hour drive from me. Thanks for checking on me Ginger.
