My son has 5 more Opdivo treatments to complete his one year of adjuvant therapy for Stage 3b....we have been counting down the treatments but as it gets closer I find myself getting so nervous about completing treatment. It will be a very bittersweet milestone for me....my son can’t wait to be finished, he’s 18 now and ready to move on from this whole thing. I on the other hand am having such anxiety...at least with treatment I felt like we were actively doing something to fight this monster off.
6 months into his treatment he had CT scans of his brain, his neck and his chest and abdomen...all clear. His primary site was on his scalp. We are going to have repeat scans again in May.
i am just wondering how often everyone went or is going for scans upon completion of adjuvant therapy for similar staging. I know adjuvant therapy is relatively new for Stage 3....I’m thinking when we aren’t treating i would like scans every 3 months for at least a year, just not sure insurance will agree with me.
