Health Monitor Staff

A treatment plan has been outlined for you that includes chemotherapy. Before your first session, your healthcare provider will want to get up-to-date information to ensure you get the most benefit from your treatment. Here are some of the items that may be discussed today:       

  • Your current health: How you have been feeling since your last appointment. If you have received other treatments, you will discuss these treatments.
  • Your medication history: You may review with you any allergies you have to medications or anesthesia.
  • Have you experienced any changes in your health or any major life stresses since your last appointment? Have you begun any new medical treatment? Have you resumed or started smoking, taken in excessive alcohol, stopped or started taking prescription medication or over-the-counter medications of any kind?
