After Treatment

Looking after your physical and emotional well-being continues to be important when your active breast cancer treatment comes to an end. As you enter and experience this phase of your life, you may have to cope with the emotional impact of the disease, and also manage some of the short- and long-term side effects of treatment.

After treatment, your needs and challenges will change, and may include some or all of the following:

As your active treatment ends, the members of your health care team will change. During treatment, you may have had a lot of contact with one health care team. Once treatment is over and your needs have changed, you may feel like you are on your own. Your health care provider will continue to be an important contact for you, guiding you to other health professionals and agencies that provide different types of follow-up care when required.

Some people may experience recurrence (cancer coming back), and others will eventually require palliative care if their cancer cannot be treated further.
