Living with this cancer is not easy, and it’s important to stay on top of follow-up appointments and doctors visits. People do not seem to realize all the tests and treatments that affect a person’s life. Not only do they have to live with the fact they have pancreatic cancer, but it is mentally draining to constantly be in and out of the hospital all the time, especially when feeling sick.
Keep those in your thoughts and prayers who are dealing with pancreatic cancer, or any illness or disease. Having to stay on top of medical bills, a schedule for taking medicines, treatments, and regular doctors’ visits, is a lot to deal with. Cancer.org discusses the importance of eating right after diagnosis, and how patients typically meet with nutritionists to ensure they are keeping their bodies as healthy as possible.
Pancreatic cancer can cause depression, anxiety, and extreme fear. Cancer.org talks about the importance of having emotional support, maybe a family member, friend, or even a therapist, to talk to during the journey. Being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer is scary, but having a good support system is important for your bad and good days.
