Survivorship - Life After Treatment
Patients who have completed treatment are truly survivors and can benefit from follow-up care for the rest of their lives, including:
- Periodic visits with testing, labs and diagnostics as necessary
- Long-term surveillance for cancer recurrence
- Ongoing management of known symptoms and risks, including: GVH (graft-vs.-host), cardiac toxicity, peripheral neuropathy, fatigue, psychosocial consequences, lymphedema and reproductive health
- Health maintenance, wellness, screening and prevention
Exercise & Thrive
