For those of you concerned about late effects the Children's Oncology Group has just published very extensive guidelines for follow-up care for survivors of childhood/adolescent cancers. They are fairly easy to use and a very good resource to share with primary care physicians when in doubt about current health issues and their relationship to past treatments.

I'm always interested in hearing from survivors.
