Re: pain in abdomen
You know, constipation can cause pains anywhere in the digestive tract, and you could also be experiencing gas pains, too. It should be reassuring that t's been nine years since you had the cancer, and unless you get the pain in exactly the same place for more than a couple of weeks, maybe you don't need to worry about it as much. Plus it sounds like you have excellent doctors who are taking very good care of you. You probably don't need scans more than once a year, if that. All those scans aren't that good for you, either.
But you should probably ask what you can do to relieve the constipation and/or gas. I suspect if you get rid of that, you won't have as many pains.
