On this episode of the Triad Cancer Connection Podcast we’re talking about survivorship with Kristin Houston, PA and Dr. Stacy Wentworth of Wake Forest Baptist Cancer Survivorship Clinic in Winston-Salem, NC. They walk us through recommendations regarding follow up medical treatment, treating common side effects, and the mental challenges that come with transitioning into post-treatment life.

We’ll also chat with Malek Rais, an eight-year colon cancer survivor, about his experience and how becoming a patient advocate at Cancer Services aided in his recovery.

What we discuss:

  • The current recommendations for colon cancer survivors regarding follow up appointments, colonoscopies and other types of medical management
  • The most important things you can focus on outside of medical management after completing active treatment
  • Determining small goals to help you transition to post-treatment life
  • Maximizing quality of life for survivors who remain on active treatment
  • Being open with your health care provider about any symptoms you’re experiencing, even if they appear minor or unrelated
  • Treating common side effects of cancer treatment
  • Establishing a survivorship support team

If you’re interested in participating in the clinical trials mentioned in this episode, please contact Meg Omara at 336-716-9055.
