(For treatment side effects and complications only)
Many people are relieved when the treatment is complete but also feel afraid and vulnerable and that the support systems are no longer available. It can be difficult re-adjusting back to your everyday life. Your GP, community nurses and Macmillan nurses are there to help you. Your cancer doctor will need to see you soon after your treatment is complete to begin with, usually at one month or six weeks, but the time span between each follow-up visit will become longer and longer.
