When your treatment is done, you’re ready to return to normal life.
However, many people find that life after cancer is a “new” type of normal.
In some cases, you may notice physical and emotional changes when your treatment is finished. These could be from your cancer or the treatment itself – and they may never quite disappear.
If you’re feeling concerned or anxious about any changes after your treatment, speak to your medical team. We can also give you resources to cope and help you adjust to your new life, post-treatment.
Follow-up care plan
Regular follow-up care appointments with your specialist and doctor are important.
You may need to visit your primary care doctor more often – or, you might need to continue seeing your cancer specialist.
At these appointments you’ll have tests and be given advice to help you continue live a healthy life, get back into an exercise routine, and maintain a healthy, nutritious diet.
We can help you create a follow-up care plan post treatment. This may include:
- Regular doctor visits and medical appointments
- Monitoring for early detection of new or returning cancers
- Management of cancer and treatment-related side effects
- Life coaching and tips to help reduce your cancer risk
- Referrals to community resources and support groups
