Some of these side-effects are serious and demand our immediate attention and possibly even additional treatment, and sometimes even a pause or a complete break in therapy. Others are not so hard and can be considered a nuisance. Nevertheless, we mustn’t neglect or dismiss those either. Mind and body work as a whole, and we must treat them accordingly.
Some of the most common side-effects include anemia, appetite loss, bleeding and bruising, constipation, delirium, diarrhea, edema, fatigue, fertility issues in boys and men, fertility issues in girls and women, flu-like symptoms, hair loss...
All these symptoms and side-effects should be reported and discussed with the health care team, no matter how minor or insignificant the symptoms might seem at the moment.We at Hope & Beauty believe in the connection between mind and body. How we feel like a whole should not be shunned as unimportant in the attempts to restore our health through therapy.
This is why Dr. Shyamali Singhal has selected a line of cosmetic products, specially designed to aid cancer patients in their recovery and to provide additional support to cancer patients while they’re coping with cancer treatment side-effects.
