    I was diagnosed with IBC in July 2008. I finished treatment in oct 2009. I was seeing my onc every 4 weeks and she just recently changed it to every 8 weeks. I get scans every year also. Some dr's dont do scans unless the patient has symptoms though. It is very important that this disease be watched after treatment is finished, as it has a very high rate of reoccurrence

      Thanks for your info.! We just met with a new oncologist who will see my mom every 3 months.

    I didn't know that with IBC there is actually a treatment completion. I have been in treatment for 18 months with no end in sight. I would think follow up initially every three months, then move to 6 months after first year if you're in remission. Just my thought.
