Follow Up Care
The doctors will usually discuss an immunization catch up schedule if your child has had chemotherapy. If this is not discussed, ask the oncologist about it.
Around the world, children frequently do very well with initial treatment, but relapse weeks or months later. When the child is not followed very closely, the new cancer activity is not detected early. This can cost children their eyes, and for many children in the world who could be cured, lack of follow up care is fatal.
