Re: tumor markers

The only tissue collected was from my breast. My oncologist and surgeon relied on PET/CT scans, MRI, and another biopsy after the six cycles with taxotere were completed. We continue with PET/CT scans every six months, bloodwork every three weeks, physical exams every six weeks, and 3D mammograms yearly. Add to that the other medical specialists that I see on a regular basis. Sometimes I think my social calendar revolves around doctor appointments.
