When the course of Treatment is complete

​What happens after I finish my treatment?

You may experience side effects during your treatment. These side effects may get worse in the week to ten days following your treatment but then they should gradually begin to get better. The staff will educate you about this when you finish your radiation treatment.

You will be given a follow up appointment, usually for about 4-6 weeks after finishing, to come back and see your radiation doctor or the doctor who originally referred you to Oncology. At this appointment the doctor will assess how the radiation treatment has gone and may ask to see you again in the future.

For all other concerns, not related to your cancer or radiation treatment, you should continue to visit your GP.
