    Once Zelboraf has been started, normally how long is it before another CT scan is done? My husband started on Z back in the beginning of May. He has developed swelling on his left side. His side is very hard and you can feel the mets that haven’t yet surfaced. We brought up the swelling to his onc the last two times he was there, but he doesn’t seem too concerned about it. Not sure what to make of it. I thought that by now the onc would have scheduled another CT scan. :?:

    Mine have been every six weeks from the beginning; PET/CT then just CT.

    Thanks for the reply. It’s time the onc answered some questions he’s been avoiding answering.

    My doctor said about every 6 weeks. I started May 30th (had to take a week off) and had my first set of scans this past Friday. Get the results tomorrow…

    Thoughts and prayers your way!
