The New Normal

Your Texas Oncology care team can help you with the transition to survivorship, wellness, and what many call “the new normal.” Within one to three months after treatment concludes, we will contact you to schedule a meeting with a member of your healthcare team to:

  • Review your care plan and goals for achieving wellness (what your treatment was and what you should do going forward)
  • Discuss surveillance and monitoring of your health
  • Link you to community resources
  • Transition back to your primary care physician or help you find one

Care Plan

You will be given a full care plan with all of your cancer treatment documented for your records. The care team will also discuss ways to continue or begin healthy lifestyle changes to maintain wellness.

Surveillance and Monitoring

Completing treatment is a major milestone, but it’s important to keep an eye on your health and monitor for any changes or new symptoms. You will continue to see your care team periodically. The appointments will be more frequent at first (i.e., every three months for the first year) and become less frequent over time.

Community resources

Texas Oncology works with community organizations to connect patients to resources outside of the care team that fit your interests and needs.

Primary Care Physician

We’ll also help you reconnect with your primary care physician, who will once again care for most of your health needs. If you do not have a primary care physician, we can help you find one. Your care team is here to help you make the transition to survivorship and will be here should you need us after treatment is completed.
