Hope everyone is well.
Yesterday I had my 2nd check up since treatment finished. Treatment finished start of November.
My first check up was the start of February, and that was a pet scan and internal exam and all was fine.
Now with my 2nd check up, they have just done a pap smear to test the cells, and an internal "look around" but told me that I will not be having an MRI or pet scan at this stage, perhaps later in the year. Doctors told me that if I had any alarming symptoms, I would have a scan immediately but right now it is not necessary.
I am so sure that they told me I was going to be having 3 monthly scans. And I didn't know that I would be having a pap smear ever again.
Anyway, the doctor said the area is looking good and that it will be 1 week to wait for the pap smear results.
I feel like I can't be relieved because I haven't had a scan, and am worried that I haven't been checked properly.
What are others experiences? Is it normal to not have scans every 3 months? Has anyone else been in my position?
I had stage 2B with node involvement.
