  • Surveillance Schedule, Non-Seminoma, Two+ Years Out

    What is everyone's surveillance schedule for non-seminoma, third year?

    Reason I am asking: (i) I was diagnosed and operated 4/2005 w/ 85% Sem/ 15% EC (pt2, N0, MO, SO); (ii) surveillance only as follow-up; (iii) treating oncologist is IU-educated and sees 200+ Tc patients at any one time; (iv) assuming, I hit my two-year mark clean, he stated that there will be no more CT scans, just CXR and markers (from the beginning, I was always marker-negative); (v) the suggested protocol runs contrary to and current nccn guidelines.

    My son was stage III treated with 4EP and an RPLND, he just passed the 2 year mark and is still following the guidelines as they are listed over at I will have to ask him if they are still plannung on taking blood but my guess is yes. It seems that they check his markers when they say hello.
    Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

    Treated by Dr. Rakowski of Midland Park, NJ. Visited Sloan Kettering for protocol advice. RPLND done at Sloan Kettering.
