I , however would say that being a t4, you should push for a four year and a five year scan. My husband was a t4 also, and at MDA they scanned him till he was just past the 5 year mark. He being 6years out now, does not even need blood work. They monitored him very closely till five years.

I am with you though, and would push for a 4-5 year scan
I didn't start getting aggressive scanning until AFTER my met was resected ... kind of like after Elvis left the building !
If your CEA is not a marker ( me neither ) ask the docs what they think they will find if they don't even LOOK ?
Wait for the silence a bit and then tell them you would rather be OVER scanned than UNDER diagnosed.
Best wishes buddy
