  • Questions about Surveillance

    Hi there,

    I had my surgery 3 months ago, and just had my first follow up appointment, I had a small stage one seminoma and my CT and chest came up clean 3 months ago as well.
    The doctor checked the scar and felt the survivor and said everything felt good. Then said go get blood work and see you in 6 months.
    This seemed odd to me, shouldn't I have gotten another CT and a sonogram on the survivor? Should I press for them?

    What else should I expect on surveillance? Doctor is fine but not too descript with the process and not easy to get ahold of.

    register at NCCN for free guidelines for TC for 2018. This is what I could find on-line but believe it is not 20017 or 2018.

      Blood work every two months, scan ever 4 months, for 1st year. That's what my plan is
