During & After Treatment

Working During Cancer Treatment

While undergoing cancer treatment, some people are eager to carry on as normal and continue to work throughout their treatment. Some people choose to take a leave of absence to concentrate on their selves and on their healing.

Staying Active

Getting plenty of rest when you’re undergoing cancer treatment can help in your recovery, but adding some physical activity during and after cancer treatment can be extremely beneficial to your mind, body and soul.

Recovery After Surgery & Possible Side Effects

The period of recovery from breast cancer surgery is different for everyone. One reason is because not all breast cancer surgeries are the same. Some people may have had a double mastectomy, where both breasts are removed, while others may have had a single mastectomy, and in other cases some people may have had a lumpectomy (removal of the cancer with a small margin of healthy tissue surrounding it) instead. Either way, having gone through a major operation such as breast cancer surgery would have taken a toll on your body. 

Eating Healthy

Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet is especially important for someone who has cancer because the illness and cancer treatments can affect your appetite, the way your body tolerates certain foods and uses nutrients. Apart from eating healthy, eating well is equally important. Eating well and this means eating a variety of foods to get the nutrients your body needs to fight cancer.
