What happens after radiation therapy
After completing radiation therapy
We will arrange a follow-up appointment with you after the end of therapy. This appointment typically takes place 6-8 weeks after the end of therapy. In accordance with the applicable radiation protection regulations, we are obliged to check the tolerability of your treatment at this point in time and for up to 5 years after completion of the treatment. The doctor will ask you how you are and, depending on your personal situation, check for specific side effects.
Side effects and physical performance
The administered dose of radiation energy increases steadily during the treatment. Therefore, side effects can sometimes only peak 7-10 days after the end of therapy. Then they gradually subside. It is important that you continue the prescribed care until the side effects are gone. Most of the side effects should resolve within 4 weeks. Of course, this time interval can vary depending on your personal sensitivity and the irradiated region and the energy dose.
Due to improvements in technology, strong skin reactions are much less common today than in the past. Any skin reactions can persist for some time after the end of therapy and occasionally intensify temporarily. It is important that you continue your skin care routine as advised until the reactions wear off. In the first months after irradiation, the skin is more sensitive to light and sun. Make sure you have good sun protection and protection from cold wind in the first 12 months after exposure.
Other side effects
Likewise, other side effects of your therapy should subside within a few weeks after the end of therapy. Depending on your specific situation, you will receive special information on this at the end of therapy. Patients often complain of drowsiness or fatigue after tumor treatments. Some patients take longer to recover from. Try to eat normally. Light physical exercise or moderate sporting activity supports recovery.
