Life in Remission

Cervical cancer survivors need to make changes in their lifestyles to undergo successful remission. Symptoms like acute fatigue, unusual Pain may also ease up or stop completely. Under remission, it is recommended to see a doctor for a routine checkup to make sure it doesn’t start up again. Remission is of two types: Partial: The medical examinations and treatments given have destroyed the cancerous cells to an extent, but tests show they might still have some side effects. Complete: All signs of cancer are gone. All Cervical Cancer treatments have some side effects that might stay for a while. Consult an oncologist to decide which treatment suits best.

  • Maintain a balanced weight by exercising and practicing fitness regimes
  • Avoid Alcohol consumption to a moderate extent
