Colorectal Cancer Recovery

Your health care team is with you every step of the way, from diagnosis through treatment, and during your recovery period, helping you to return to a healthy, normal, active life.

Many patients report feeling enlightened after cancer treatment, and that, ultimately, it’s an empowering experience.

The Nurse Navigator is available to assist you with practical matters related to your recovery, but also to provide you with reassurances that you will get your life back on track.

If you have had an ostomy, which is a surgically constructied new opening from the bladder or bowel to the exterior of the body, we will provide you with the support you need to still have an active lifestyle. Nutritional and Coping with Chemotherapy classes are also available.
