How long between scans...

Postby Wonderfullymade » Tue Feb 28, 2017 10:58 am

So... yesterday I was getting my treatment and the RN said Dr wants to do another scan next month...
What? I just had a scan last month...she said she wants a scan every 3 treatments, which is every 9 weeks then.
So I know every place is different, but I went from every 4 months last year ( she was following the old Drs protocol) to basically every 2 months now...
Will I be over radiated ? Does it matter?
Anybody else get scanned this much?

I might not even have to worry about ins co might put and end to it...
Anybody have any thoughts?
