I had my first scan a month after finishing treatment. I didn't have another for a year, then 6 months after that which was Oct. 2017. I saw my oncologist in November and graduated to 6 month visits. I will see her again in May. I'm not sure when she will do the next scan, I was assuming 6 months from the last but not sure. She told me we would schedule when I see her in May. My pulmonologist said she didn't want to do another chest scan for a year(which would be Jan, 2019) since my nodule has not changed and is so small, unless oncologist wanted to do earlier. But I did have one a month after treatment ended which was a year from diagnosis. Had a pet scan after chemo/radiation and before surgery, and a ct scan of abdomen/pelvis 4 weeks after surgery only because of a bowel blockage.
