Answer

See the list below:

  • Periodic monitoring at 3- to 4-month intervals is critical to evaluate for progress with the resumption of physical activity, resolution of the constitutional symptoms, and freedom from adverse effects from medications.

  • Less frequent visits, perhaps once a year, are appropriate while following a prophylaxis regimen.
