Finding a New Normal – Life as a Cancer Survivor

One of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s blog posts for December 2015 concerns the post-treatment “new normal” faced by those who have survived cancer.

“Being treated for cancer can take all of a person’s physical and emotional energy. Once a person begins to feel physically healed, they can start processing the psychosocial impact of the diagnosis and treatment. Emotional ups and downs can be expected after treatment ends.”

Questions also remain – “What comes next?” “What can I do to make sure it doesn’t come back?” “What if it does?” “Will I have issues or late or long-term effects from treatment?” “What will life be like?” “Who can I count on?” “Who don’t I want to spend time with?”
