Before and during treatment, there are frequent follow-up appointments and facility visits. Your oncologist and care team monitor your responses to therapy and keep a close eye on your health and progress. However, after completing cancer therapy, many survivors are left with the question, “Now what?” It can be a scary time of transition. Even years after completing treatment, survivors may still have lingering symptoms, concerns, and barriers to living their life to the fullest.
The true. Women’s Health Cancer Wellness Program focuses on helping women recover their quality of life after cancer treatment – no matter how long it has been. We provide education and an evidence-based plan for improving and optimizing your health and wellness after cancer treatment.
We participate with most major insurance companies and bill insurance for in-office or telemedicine visits. Insurance companies do require that we collect office co-pays and coinsurance at the time of your visit. We do not participate with Medicare or Medicaid.
This first visit includes getting to know you and having you share a complete review of your cancer history. A physical exam will also be performed at this visit if appropriate. We will also address any post-treatment symptoms or concerns at this time. These symptoms may include but are not limited to fatigue, neuropathy, depression, anxiety, fear of recurrence, hormonal, sexual health concerns, and body image.
Utilizing true.'s W*A*I* Pointes® process of care as the basis, you will set new wellness goals and write an action plan to achieve them. Don't worry – we will help you and provide you with all the tools you need to complete this! We will offer strategies to reduce your risk for cancer recurrence (or new cancers) and review prevention tactics. We will discuss your heart health and bone health and order testing if needed. We'll ask you about your diet and lifestyle and provide a follow-up plan as well as coordinate with other providers and offer referrals if needed.
The true. team will review your wellness goals and progress, and help you make adjustments if needed. This second visit also focuses on the importance of nutrition for you as a survivor. Our Nutrition Coach will address your specific diet-related concerns, review your cancer risk, and make lifestyle recommendations that may help to reduce risk for recurrence.
In addition to your diet and nutrition, this visit also addresses your mental health, fitness, and physical abilities after your cancer diagnosis. Are you challenged with pain, loss of muscle mass, or decreased strength? Are you struggling to overcome thoughts of recurrence or dealing with anxiety and depression? We'll connect you with professionals that have the expertise to help you on this new journey after cancer.
This visit includes a full review and the progress you've made toward your goals. We'll discuss any persistent or lingering post-treatment issues and long-term side effects you may be experiencing.
