After your chemotherapy has finished, you will have regular check-ups and possibly scans or x-rays. These will probably continue for several years.
If you have any problems, or notice any new symptoms in between your appointments, let your doctor know as soon as possible.
Many people find that they get very anxious before their appointments. This is natural and it may help to get support from family and friends| during this time.
When your treatment is finished, you may feel it’s time to get back to normal. However, this can sometimes be one of the hardest times to cope with. Recovery times vary, and no one can say for sure how long it should take to get over the treatment and its effects. The end of the visits to hospital for treatment can leave you feeling like you’re on your own.
Many people find that they feel very low and emotional| at this time, when they had expected to be able to put the cancer and the treatment behind them. This may be the time when you need the most support. Support| is available if you would like it.
Please complete our survey to tell us how helpful you've found this information, and whether there's anything else we could do to improve it.
