Last week we suggested you create your own survivorship plan. You can do this by access the OncolLife link here. https://oncolife.oncolink.org/form/oncolife_v11/ One of our members tried it out and shares some of his experience here.
After completing the plan it seems I have already experienced a lot of the late onset side effects. I was never given much information on what to expect other than regular tooth care and to use GC Tooth Mousse after brushing my teeth. Having read through the aftercare section I could be paranoid but I show several symptoms of hyperthyroidism. I also have problems in certain shops where the lighting makes it difficult to focus on things, once out of the shop my eyesight is fine. My wifre and I plan to raise these matters with my GP.
The OncolLife survey, (17 pages) is a great place to start a conversation with the a GP or clinical specialist. It gives you the language and the international standard of care you should be receivingin your follow up care.
If you have not taken the survey, which creates you a personalised survivorship plan, have a go today. https://oncolife.oncolink.org/form/oncolife_v11/
