Colon Cancer: In Treatment: All Stages
How each of us experiences any particular treatment is as individual as we are. However, a combination of advice from experts and experience of people with colon or rectal cancer provides a guide to getting through treatment as well as possible.
As you have likely already seen, to avoid information overload, our discussions start with summary overviews. We suggest reading the summaries for each section, then returning for additional information as needed. If you do experience overload, take a break and return to the guide when you’re ready. Alternatively, ask a trusted family member or friend to read through the guide and let you know what you need to know when you need to know it.
We suggest you start by reading "The Basics", which includes a mind set which has shown to be helpful to people.
Next look at "Managing Your Medical Care" to get an idea of what to anticipate – with tips to make treatment easier and suggestions about dealing with side effects that may appear. Then move on to the other subjects of interest to you.
