    Hello, if you were diagnosed in January (9 months ago), I'm trying to rememebr- but this is my best guess: CEA: every month CT SCAN and Pet Scans alternating every 3 months Colonoscopy: yearly (at least). I believe as you get further from your diagnosis date the frequency of these tests changes.

      Hello. My husband was diagnosed with stage 3B rectal cancer at the age of 27. His scans and colonoscopies have been clear for four years now. I was wondering if anyone experienced any symptoms with a reocurrence? He is due to see the oncologist and is experiencing the following: extreme fatigue, weightloss, and extreme joint pain/aches. Thank you for your response.
