Ct scans


Ct scans

Hi ,

just need some reassurance,I have been taking palbociclib and letrozole since December 2020, when I was diagnosed with secondary bc ,it has been  a really positive experience as my inoperable tumour under collarbone area has completely disappeared on my last scan in November 2022.

, I also have no distant mets at this point ,which is a really positive result ,I moved house last feb 2022 so had to change hospitals , my hospital before the move did 6monthly scans ,the new hospital has been doing 3monthly scans since April 2022 .
I saw my consultant 3days ago having not had a scan since November 2022 ,and he told me it would now be done once a year ,with 3monthly consultations still with him .

He said as there was no progression on the scans and I was tolerating palbociclib and letrozole well .the team therefore thought less radiation etc would be better and to have them once a year.

Does anyone else have them only once a year I am so pleased with my results ,but also nervous of the length between scans and having to rely on how my body feels .

Sorry it’s a long post. and thank you for listening.x
