Survivorship Support for Multiple Myeloma Patients
After your multiple myeloma treatment ends, the cancer therapies you received may affect your well-being for some time. The Survivorship Support Program at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is designed to help you maintain your health and improve your quality of life once your hospital treatment is complete.
Continued Multiple Myeloma Care from a Distance
After your multiple myeloma treatment is complete, a registered CTCA survivorship nurse will work with you to assess your health and identify potential long-term and late effects of your treatment. Your individualized multiple myeloma survivorship support plan may include information on:
- Bone and joint pain
- Cognitive and memory problems
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Heart problems
- Lung damage
- Secondary cancers
You’ll then receive an individualized wellness plan that proactively anticipates and plans for managing potential side effects. We also understand you may have concerns about recurrence and other emotional issues. Your wellness plan also includes nutritional, physical and emotional education and support.
As part of our multiple myeloma survivorship support program, when you return to CTCA for follow-up appointments, you may receive a physical exam, blood tests, bone marrow biopsy and other tests to look for signs of recurrent disease or other conditions.
