          No one with brain mets has chimed in, so I will.

          I haven't had brain mets, but my doc has changed my scan sched after a year of NED scans  every 3 months to scans every 6.  Then eventually (after 2 years?) I went to every year. I saw it as a NED celebration.

          Hope this helps!

              Thank you for your reply. Having body scans every 3 month brain 6 months due to been NED in brain for 2 years.
              Wishing you NED forever xxx
