As part of your Survivorship care, you can also receive physical therapy and take advantage of the LIVESTRONG program for twelve weeks at a local YMCA. The twice-a-week LIVESTRONG program is tailored specifically for cancer survivors, helping you regain strength, balance, flexibility and confidence – all in a safe, supported environment with compassionate professionals. Ask your Survivorship Clinic team for more details on the LIVESTRONG program.
At the St. Elizabeth Survivorship Clinic, we are also here to help coordinate your follow-up care, including appointments with:
Your radiation oncologist, if applicable.
Your medical oncologist, if applicable.
We’ll also map out future appointments for scans and discuss any warning signs you’ll need to report to your doctor.
You’ll leave the Survivorship Clinic with your personal “after treatment care” follow-up care plan in a special folder that helps you keep track of important information. A copy of your care plan will also go to your primary care doctor and oncologist. The Survivorship Clinic follows all NAPBC Breast Cancer Survivorship Care guidelines.
You can expect a nurse navigator to call a few months after your first Survivorship Clinic visit to check on how you’re doing with meeting your goals. Typically, regular checkups continue with your oncology team between your Survivorship Care visits. As always, we’re here for anything you need in your journey as a breast cancer survivor.
