Interval between chemo and CT


#1

Recently i finished 2 circles chemo. last CT is at the end of May, so next CT would be around the end of Aug.

the original chemo plan only 2 circles. but doctor said theoretically the interval between chemo and CT shouldn't be too long, so he hope me receive chemo once more. is it make sense?

last CT shows a good result. Radiologists doctor said the remaining tumor may be scarring.


#2

If the time between your CT scan and chemo is too long, this could give time for the tumor to grow back. Then it would be difficult to assess whether the chemo is working or not. Are you going to have a surgery after chemo?


#3

i see. doctor not mention about surgery. if next CT scan not be worse than last time, could stop treatment and keep observing.
