Unfortunately, I had a meeting I had to be at so I couldn't make it to husband's appointment with oncologist and surgeon. He relayed to me that the pathology showed CLEAR/NEGATIVE margins and his oncologist says there is no need for more chemo.
The spot was so small and the chemo was shown to be so effective, that they are not worried about leftover cancer that could turn into mets.
Surveillance will be full body CT scans alternating with abdominal MRIs every three months.
