Understand and Manage Your Cancer Diagnosis Tips
Your health team plays a vital role in your treatment plan. There are many options out there and plenty of decisions you will need to make. Take your time to evaluate them. Ask your primary physician, health insurance company, and your family members, coworkers, and friends for referrals. Don't be afraid to meet with multiple doctors and facilities to find the one that works best with you.
Next: Good Communication
Being open and honest with your healthcare team is vital to the success of your treatment plan. Don't be afraid to ask questions or seek additional opinions. Working with your healthcare team ensures that you will receive the best possible care during your cancer treatment.
Next: Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Managing your treatment plan, work, and family life is going to require a lot of work. It will be easy to skip eating right, exercising, and taking time for yourself. Make sure you try to eat healthy meals (even small ones), get plenty of rest, lightly exercise every day, take your medications as prescribed, and make time for yourself to relax.
Next: Get Support
It is not unusual to want to go it alone when initially diagnosed with cancer. You may feel that you don't want to burden your loved ones. Let those feelings go. Your healthcare team, family, friends, and community are willing to be your support during this time of need. Reach out and us them!
Next: Life Planning
You should take the time to evaluate and prepare for end-of-life decisions. Being prepared allows for your loved ones to focus on your quality of life rather than struggling with decisions only you know the answer to.
