Cancer recovery care

Getting treatment for any form of cancer can be quite draining on the human body especially for those that had to or have to undergo radiation therapy, surgery, chemotherapy, transplants and other recovery methods. The side effects from these treatments can range from appetite changes, weakness, infection, to high levels of pain amongst many other things thereby making it a difficult time for the patient, family, friends and even pets. People sometimes say that the treatment is worse than the disease but, getting better from cancer is a challenge as one might have a lot of doctor visits, rigid medication schedule and also the side effects that one would have to deal with.
