What is your experience with side effects and how did you deal with them?

Hi my name is Alyssa. I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma in April last year. My experience with cancer so far has been a wild journey. I had trouble managing my side effects of nausea and vomiting. And I also lost conditioning in my muscles and had difficulty walking.


However, this led me into researching ways that I could manage my side effects. For a school project I have decided to study the topic of complementary therapies in cancer treatment. I would love to hear how you have managed your side effects and learn what methods you used. Below is a link to a survey I've created about the use of complementary therapies. If you were to complete it I would be extremely grateful!! The survey is anonymous and only takes 3 minutes.




Alternatively, leave a reply telling me what methods you've used to deal with side effects and share your story!


If you could share this survey to other patients that would great too! I need all the help I can get 🙂

Thank you!
