After treatment

Side effects may get worse in the week to 10 days after treatment then will gradually subside. 

Staff will educate you about managing side effects in your final few days of radiation treatment. 

Follow-up appointment

  • Once you have completed radiation therapy treatment you will be given a follow-up appointment with your radiation oncologist/registrar. 
  • The appointment may be shortly after your last treatment but is often three months after finishing.
  • Before a follow-up appointment you may be required to have blood tests or scans.
  • At this appointment the oncologist/registrar will assess how the radiation treatment has gone and may ask to see you again in the future.
