After the monitoring period is over, your healthcare team will arrange follow-up appointments and any ongoing care you may need.
These appointments are to monitor your overall health and may include routine tests such as blood tests. You may undergo assessments such as PET scan or CT scan for your healthcare team to understand how well your cancer is responding to treatment.
If necessary, your healthcare team might also arrange weekly phone calls with you. If you have any questions during this time you should contact your healthcare team directly via phone or email.
It’s a good idea to keep a note of how you’re feeling within ‘Your Treatment Journal’, so that you can discuss any changes with your healthcare team.
If you think you’re showing signs or symptoms of side effects, contact your healthcare team straight away. Do not treat your symptoms with over-the-counter medications or herbal/dietary supplements without the approval of your healthcare team.
