Thanks for starting this thread. The whole micrometastates issue is making me crazy and I also am obsessed with figuring out something. I had lymph nodes tested after my CRC surgery, and two lung surgeries. My lymph nodes have all been clear each time. I've had my blood tested twice for circulating tumor cells. Nothing. Maybe this is naive but I want to know: where are these cancer cells and how are they traveling? This time around I'm physically and mentally stronger, and determined to give myself the best chance. Experience and this forum have taught me the value of obsession and research. As the song goes, I still have a lot of fight left in me.
