Cancer patients don’t stop feeling the physical end emotional effects of cancer even if they have stopped treatment.
Emotional effects can include:
- Fear about the cancer coming back
- Feelings of isolation and being alone
- Loss of confidence
Physical effects can include:
- Coping with body changes
- Eating problems
- Relationship/sexual issues
The Macmillan cancer support and information service and other local agencies can help patients manage these effects so they can look forward to the future and get on with life.
We can provide a listening ear, advice and information and access to the Macmillan HOPE programme for those patients who may need a little more support.
