I have had bilateral mastectomies and I have a chest and abdominal CRT scan once to twice a year along with a chest xray and the radioactive bone scan.
I have to do self exams to see if there's anything I can feel in between these tests. Since my last onc visit a couple of weeks ago, I don't know if they will continue doing these tests so frequently since I am almost 11 years out.
I guess it might also have to do with the stage of bc. If you're not comfortable, ask about
