There is a study modelling the time it takes for the last possible metastasis to show up on a CAT scan based on the time of volume doubling of the largest and therefore first metastasis. But if this is the reason to wait it would be nice to hear it from the medical team. It looks like this type of metastases do not spread to other sites but can only grow.
That study is reassuring to read but yes, it would be even better to hear it from your doctors. There is so much information out there and so much of it is written above my pay grade! I have learned more about cancer this past year than I ever imagined or ever wanted!
I'm sure you will have a long list of questions for your oncologist once you see her/him.
