Coping with short and long term side effects
Some people will lose their hair due to cancer treatment, some people will lose their appetite, and most people will lose their sense of normality. The side effects of treatment can be the most devastating effect of cancer, others cope better than they thought they would. For everyone the experience is different and most people say that being prepared helped them cope. We can give you practical advice and information, ensuring you feel informed about what might happen and how you might deal with the different effects, just ask the support team.
