As medical care improves, Australians are surviving cancer in increasing numbers. But there is little information about life post-treatment - what are some common themes and long-term side effects that people can expect to encounter?
With warmth and vigour, After Cancer demystifies the aftermath of treatment, delving into what survivorship really entails. Oncologist Dr Ranjana Srivastava also introduces a useful survivorship template. Using available evidence and a good dose of common sense, she outlines how survivors can seize control of their life. By asking the right questions of their providers, survivors can find their way back to clarity.
