I’ve Finished Cancer Treatment, Now What?
Survivorship 101
Dr. Christopher George, Medical Director, Medical Oncology, Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group
Cancer treatment can require a patient’s full attention and energy for months or even years. And when it is done, the treatment can leave patients emotionally and physically spent, and even a bit disoriented as they adjust to life after cancer. Dr. George will address what to expect as a “cancer survivor,” and how you can partner with your medical team to help you recover from treatment.
