No sé que hacer después.

No sé que hacer a continuación.
Depending on context, maybe.

Thanks
Depending on context, maybe. But not always.

The best single-expression translation equivalent of después in English is "after(ward)", while for a continuación it is "then". The meanings overlap to an extent, but they are not complete synonyms.
