Hi I have breast cancer and am having chemotherapy. I am going ok on the whole but have anxiety about my treatment and nausea. I feel like other people cope better than me. How do people cope with anxiety?
the way I cope with nausea is the tablets they give you. also sipping ginger ale is also helpful. do you have to have radiation later I do after my chemo but I don't like the sound of radiation and they say a whole mascetomy is equal to radiation would like to know your opinion on this
Thanks for your tips. Yes I will have radiation after my chemo. Everyone says it's much easier than chemo. As I understand it, accepted medical wisdom is that we need radiation if we keep our breast and have a lumpectomy. The radiation is designed to kill any remaining cancer cells in the breast that had cancer. I am also having some nodes radiated. I am ok about the radiation, there are risks associated with it but because it is easier than chemo I worry less about it. I would follow medical advice.
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.
