Patient care does not end when treatment is over. You have forged a lifelong bond with your physicians and the entire breast care team, and it is likely that you will maintain a relationship with them for your lifetime. Continued care includes monitoring after treatment, annual or bi-annual check-ups including imaging, regular testing, and long-term care.
Post-surgery and beyond, a variety of resources are available to you to make your transition from patient to survivor more manageable. At CarePoint Health, your survivorship care plan will be tailored to you.
