Re: SO FRUSTRATED! - I hate these 'mega' medical groups

My own scheduling mixups were just the opposite of yours Jaynee. Even after I was out of the yearly plan, the Oncs kept sending referrals for my follow up scope yearly when the Surgeon who did them, said 3 years or 5 years depending upon polyps and timing from resection / chemo. I kept telling each ...

Re: TATME

I had pCR confirmed by pathology on the resected tissue after surgery, NOT cCR based on clinical assessment or imaging before surgery.

Standard of care for rectal / low rectosigmoid (2007) involved neoadjuvant chemoradiation, resection, adjuvant chemo ... which is what I had.
