Follow up after treatment

edited November 2019 in Welcome & Orientation

I have just recently finished treatment for stage 3c OC and wanted to know what to expect with follow up and the best test options. I'm having final scans and blood tests tomorrow which will become my base line results moving forward.

  • Hi Alice, After I have finished treatments, my oncologist usually likes to see me in about 6 weeks with completed blood tests to see what the marker is doing.  If it is still in the normal range she then extends the next appointment to 3 months and checks on the blood test then.  Often after about 6 months she may arrange for me to have more scans.  It is a good time to let your body recover and allow your self to get back to your normal routines.  It does take a while to adjust to not having all the tests and appointments, enjoy this freedom.  Take care and enjoy your recovery.  Helen
