Cancer treatment has come to an end… What now?
Finishing cancer treatment can be a positive experience; however it is common for people to struggle to return to normal, often due to difficulties such as fatigue, sleep, pain, relationships, emotions, body image and other worries.
Our ‘living with and beyond cancer’ event offers a chance to meet others and find ways to manage some of these difficulties in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The topics we cover will be decided by you on the day. We know that friends and family can find the treatment process difficult too, so they are welcome to come along. We will be able to give them some advice and information as well.
The event is run by NHS health professionals and is part of your recovery and rehabilitation programme. It is focused on providing you with some tools and information that may be helpful in moving forward following treatment, in a supportive environment. Our events focus on the psychological aspect of managing a cancer diagnosis – we use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) methods to think about some of the ways to manage some of the difficulties you might have experienced as a result of your diagnosis.
