•    On your last day of treatment or during your last on treatment visit, your doctor and/or nurse will discuss what is normal to experience after radiation therapy. You will also receive a follow-up appointment with your doctor, which can vary depending on your doctor's guideline

    •    Please feel free to contact us at (021) 5339-3269 (Monday to Friday, 9:00am-6:00pm; for other time you can call 400-868-3000; call center will contact the on-call doctor) before your first follow-up appointment with any questions or concerns

    •    Following radiation therapy, you may continue to have side effects related to your treatments. Below are some guidelines that will tell you what to expect and how to care for yourself after you complete your radiation treatments. Most side effects that you experienced during your treatments will gradually improve. Some may get worse for a few days after treatment before they start to improve. However, some may persist for months or may even be permanent. Your doctor will ask you about your symptoms when you return for a follow up visit:

      ○  SKIN: If you experienced a skin reaction during your treatments, it may worsen for 7-10 days after your final treatment and then begin to heal. Continue to gently cleanse and moisturize with recommended skin products as instructed by your doctor or nurse. If you notice that areas of your skin become open or weepy, if you have a fever (38.3°C or above) or notice large amounts of thick drainage, contact your radiation doctor or nurse. Once the skin has healed, be sure to protect it from injury and avoid direct sun exposure. Use a sunscreen if you cannot avoid the sun

      ○  DIET: If you have been on a special diet to control the side effects of your treatment, follow this diet until the side effects have resolved. Then, slowly advance to your normal diet

      ○  ACTIVITY: As tolerated. Fatigue and weakness can continue for several weeks. You may need to have rest periods and/or pace your activities

    •    The end of cancer treatment is often a time to rejoice. You are probably relieved to be finished with the demands of treatment and are ready to put the experience behind you. Yet at the same time, you may feel sad and worried. It's common to be concerned about whether the cancer will come back and what you should do after treatment

    •    When treatment ends, you may expect life to return to the way it was before you were diagnosed with cancer. But it can take time to recover. You may have permanent scars on your body, or you may not be able to do some things you once did easily. You may also have emotional scars from going through so much or you may fear that others view you as different or you may view yourself in a different way. You might talk to a friend who you trust.If you need, please feel free to talk with our social worker or schedule with our counselor

    •    One of the hardest things after treatment is when you do not know what to expect next. Many cancer survivors feel that they had a lot of information and support during their illness and once treatment ends; they enter a whole new world - one filled with new questions

    •    There are many emotional demands on you during this time in your life. It is common to feel anxious, depressed, afraid or hopeless. It may help to talk about your feelings. Feel free to talk about these feelings with any member of your treatment team. You can also talk to our social worker and/or our nurse
