Your last treatment visit
After your final treatment you will meet with the radiation nurse and radiation oncologist. This is a time to discuss how you are feeling and go over any questions you may have. If necessary, you will also be prescribed medications. You will also schedule a follow-up visit for sometime two to six weeks following the last therapy treatment.
Monitoring how you are doing
Follow-up visits are generally scheduled at three- and six-month intervals. These visit allow the radition oncologist to see how you are doing, and address any side effects you may be experiencing. Just as every patient is different, follow-up care varies. Your radiation oncologist will prescribe and schedule the follow-up care that you need. Don't hesitate to ask about the tests or treatments that your doctor orders.
