I have my 6 months set of scan and checkup upcoming in mid September. could be every 3 or 6 months for the first 3 years, but my onc thought it overkill for 3 and went with 6. i am certainly with you on the pains and seeing this or that, but hypersensitivity is what i end up concluding everytime. hell, i did not know i had cancer the first time, did not feel anything and a colonoscopy caught it. this ordeal is certainly not easy, everything has changed. however, we need to move on in our lives just as everyone does because, everyone has something, some trialor tribulation they must face daily. you will be fine, more than fine. we have to believe that.
