Hi Zol, I was on 6 month checkups with cancer oncology for prostate cancer and prior to these appointments had full blood tests, scans and an annual bone scan. (I did find myself with DVT in left leg as a result of this) Following the kidney cancer operation on 6 month checks which after the next one will go to 12 months and should think, blood tests and scans prior to these as well. It will be a welcome change to have 12 month checks (both together I hope) as we know the road only too well to the big smoke. There is a 'cooling pillow' available which I find pretty good for the hot flashes, but still seem to be able to saturate both sides during an episode. Hope all goes well for you Terry2
