I am a 31 year old childhood cancer survivor (Wilms tumor and lung cancer). I have had multiple late effects, for a total of 10 surgeries throughout my life. I have always had Kaiser insurance and have had what I considered "crisis management" health care.
I am now researching and learning more and am realizing there is much more knowledge and many more professionals trained in late effects.
I live in San Francisco and am just starting to look into going to a late effects clinic. I am wondering if anyone out there has been or is currently being treated/followed through a late effects clinic? What is it like? How has it helped or not helped you? Is there anything that I should know?
