What problems do you face when returning to ‘normal’ life after cancer treatment?
Hearing from you via Yahoo! Answers helps us to gather information about the types of support you need charities like us to offer. For example, people tell us the impact of a cancer diagnosis doesn't suddenly stop when treatment is over - many people have difficulties returning to normal life emotionally, practically and medically post treatment. Please share with us your experiences and practical tips for keeping positive and coming to terms with things after treatment for cancer. We also have suggestions for living with and beyond cancer that you might find useful:

I have lost my mind.

The doctor said I would be dead in 2 months

and that it was hopeless.

He said I had stage 4 stomach cancer and lymphomia.

I never went back to the doctor again.

That was 5 yrs ago.

I took resveratrol.

Nobody will tell the doctor that I am alive.

They act like I had the flu.

The doctor said that the chemo had done nothing

and then he said it was hopeless.

I was skin and bones and could hardly walk.

After 30 days of taking resveratrol I started to gain weight.

I stayed at the house for 2 years.

I walked everyday.

It was very hard to do.

It has been a nightmare.

There is noway to explain what it does to you.

weakness, fatique, dietary restrictions, vitamins and minerals, dizziness, hair loss, depression, paranoia, thirst, lack of appetite, weight gain/loss. the best support comes from family and friends who encourage a patient to go on with their lives.

Maintaining a good diet for example do not eat sweets, do not drink too much milk, do not eat fruit gummy. Because the example above foods are triggers cancer.

I know two people who went through harsh chemo treatments.

As far as I can tall, they are the same people they were before this all started. Granted it took some time they seemed quiet and tired for several months, but after a while they basically were back to what they once were.

I heard you get a fright, because my doctor had cancer and whenether he was going back to work he would cry.

I have been in remission since April...non Hodgkin's lymphoma. I have gone through chemo with-drawls to where my body craves the toxins. I even puked on my cat once (funny story). I have been instructed by my oncologist not to quit smoking because it would be too many toxins in and too many toxins out at the same time. The one thing I can say is that the moment you stop laughing is the day you die. My husband calls me chia pet or (bald) eagle. Stick up your middle finger. There is no such thing as normal life...there is just life.

Well my Nana died 2 years ago of a rare type of cancer. I'm not sure which type. It was very aggressive. She died a year after it had been diagnosed. After watching her die I've never been the same. That's the image I have in my head of her. Watching her being in pain. Maybe you can provide counciling for the younger members of the family that had been affected if you don't already.

My dad had chemo for bowel cancer and he has suffered with some short term memory loss and he can't feel anything in his fingers and toes which he finds very frustrating as he can't open things like tins on his own.

i dont know but my cusin is having a hard time talking and eating, and having a hard time going out side (scared of the outside).

she also has a hard time dealing with her hair.

Struggling to get your formal life back is the biggest challenge to cancer survivors. The treatments are harsh, they are mental and physical. You are struggling with issues of fatigue, nerve damage, restlessness, fear, and depression. For some here in the States fighting cancer can wipe out your life savings, it could put you out on the street, and that is unfortunate.

Some things Swedish Cancer Institute of Seattle offers those going through cancer treatment and those that have finished treatment is the "Active Program". You work with a physical therapist and they teach you how to exercise and for us having fought breast cancer they teach you how to massage your lymph nodes and gives you exercises to learn how to keep your flexibility.

Mental problems dealing with fear and depression we use a psychologist. There was a writing class for former cancer patients that my wife goes to, and getting it down on paper is a way of dealing with what cancer has done to you.

Attempting to deal with chemo-brain and fatigue is what we find difficult. We do a stairmaster to try and build endurance and try to solve puzzles like Suduko, and play card games for our mental problems.

Returning to normal, or adjusting to our new normal is what we are hoping to do. Being able to go to work and feel like you have the energy and mental capability to perform would be what our immediate goals are.

I will check out your link, thanks.


Fatigue and fear.

5 years post surgery and nearly 5 years since treatment completed I still tire quickly - maybe it's just a part of my aging?

And the fear never leaves. Everything abnormal prompts the fear that it could be the cancer recurring. Every check-up serves as a reminder that it could recurr, with the week before spent on edge until I once agaon get the "all clear".

Other than that, my life is back to 'normal' for me!
