The Bone Marrow Transplant Survivorship Program addresses the unique needs of bone marrow/stem cell transplant patients. Our goal is to work with you and your primary care provider to help you live your best life. We will:
- Give you a treatment summary and follow-up plan.
- Arrange appointments for any needed tests or imaging.
- Monitor for delayed side effects or complications of previous cancer treatments.
- Talk with you about wellness.
- Provide any needed referrals for rehabilitation, support groups or other services.
- Help your primary care provider plan the best long-term care for you by:
- Giving you documents to share about your care.
- Giving your provider studies or long-term test results.
How the program works
You can request an evaluation if you had a bone marrow or stem cell transplant — at the Knight Cancer Institute or another center — at least one year ago. We will ask for the names of your primary care provider and your oncologist, eye doctor, dentist and any other specialists you see.
At your appointment, we will go over:
- Your treatment and follow-up plan
- Immunity and infections
- The risk of cancer as a result of cancer treatment
- How you're adjusting professionally, socially and emotionally
- Any services you might need, such as:
- Nutrition counseling
- Genetic counseling
- Referrals to support for social, psychological and emotional needs
- Physical therapy or alternative medicine
- Pain control or other treatments
- Help with insurance and finances
- Any complications with your:
- Heart and circulatory system
- Kidneys and urinary tract
- Muscles, bones and joints
- Memory and concentration
- Hormones (thyroid function, and insulin and glucose control)
