1 doctor weighed in:

I saw a surgeon for the 7 neck nodes. He ordered 4 biopsy's and CT of neck, chest, abdomen & pelvis and tons of bloodwork. Is this a "normal" reaction?

In brief: Probably...

The surgeon has the benefit of taking your history and examining you and possibly the results of the biopsies which would justify the seeming "extensive" evaluation.
I would not doubt this or attempt to second-guess. Be thankful your surgeon appears to be thorough.
