I am thrilled to be a 22 year survivor of advanced testicular cancer. I accept & live with the side affects of chemo, radiation & multiple surgeries. I am finding that recent changes in how my body & mind work (or don't work properly!) have got doctors perplexed. For example - joint aches & pains that have no apparent cause. I was wondering if anyone has had similar experiences or knows of any research that may have been done on long term effects - mainly on chemo.
As a formed Cancer Connect volunteer, and trained in Major Illness psychology, I know that every person experiences & deals with cancer differently. I am looking for any shared experiences & hints in dealing with long term ageing after chemo.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
