What happens after treatment?
After your treatment is completed and your doctor determines that you are in remission, you will be monitored closely. Your doctor will see you for an examination every three months for the first two years, then every six months for the next three years. You will typically have a Pap smear and pelvic examination during your monitoring visits. Radiologic studies may be obtained based on the development of any symptoms or for routine screening.
The SGO Survivorship Toolkit helps survivors organize their treatment history and future care plans. You can develop a survivorship plan along with your gynecologic oncologist and use this as an opportunity to evaluate and improve your overall health.
