So, I'm halfway through treatment and I'm already starting to think about what comes next.
I'm optimising diet and exercising everyday, that's for sure.
Vegetables, fruit and whole grain. White meat from local farmers twice a week, fish a little more often. Super foods in the mix.
I'm doing 5km of nordic walking everyday. Maybe in the winter time I'm feeling up to the task of joining the gym again.
Supplementing with Aspirin, Curcumin, Vitamin D3, Fish oil and Multivitamins.
Now to my problem: my Oncs are only willing to scan me once a year and making blood checks every 3 months
that will NOT work for me.
I was thinking more about (first 3 yrs):
- Body CT once a year and
Pelvis Abdomen MRI and Chest X Ray twice a year
- Blood every two months (with Portacaht flush)
- Colonoscopy once a year
This way I would have an imagiological control every 4 months and without having such a burden from only having CT, since I would be throwing a MR and an X Ray in the mix...
Many thanks in advance for your experiences dear fellow CRC Asskickers
