Following cancer and treatment, there may be problems with practical day-to-day life activities, in addition to the physical and emotional after effects you may experience.
Some challenges start during treatment and continue after treatment is finished. Others can surface months after treatment is completed, especially if physical and emotional after effects also develop.
Practical after effects may include:
- Difficulty working due to physical or emotional after effects -
Changes in relationships with loved ones, friends, or coworkers
- Problems getting health or life insurance coverage
- Challenges communicating concerns to your healthcare team
- Financial stressors
- Employment discrimination
