TIPS FOR CARE TAKERS:
Here is a discussion to the most common question:
What do I need to know about cancer treatment?
Cancer treatment varies a lot depending on the type and stage of the cancer. The most common treatments for cancer are surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation. Treatment may mean time in the hospital or making many trips to a clinic for radiation or chemotherapy. The patient may be able to go to some treatments on their own. For other treatments, someone may need to drive or go along The person with cancer may need more than one type of treatment, and each type comes with its own challenges.
Treatment can be long or fairly short, but even short treatments tend to disrupt a person’s life for several weeks. As the caregiver, your life and your family’s lives may be disrupted, too. You may find that you need to take time off from work.
Some questions that we may want to discuss with the cancer team ahead of time are:
What symptoms do we need to tell you about right away? Which ones can wait?
How do we reach you after office hours? On weekends? Holidays?
What can we do to manage side effects?
How will we know if treatment is working?
