There are many different ways of looking at recovery and cancer survivorship. It is the part of the cancer journey following treatment.
“I was surprised by the depression I felt after the treatments were over. I expected to be dancing for joy, but once the treatments were done, the adrenaline rush of being in survival mode was also gone. I had to adjust to a new normal. After working through my cancer treatments, the emotional impact after my treatments were done was what nearly derailed me.”
