Prostate Cancer

Life in remission

Prostate Cancer Treatment can be extremely overwhelming and can take away your hope and will to live. The side effects that occur after the treatment can be traumatizing. However, engaging with your loved ones and asking for community support can help boost your mood during this emotional phase. A few of the side effects that you might experience are:

  • Weakness and Fatigue

Fatigue is the most common factor linked to Cancer Treatment. The distressing side effect of Cancer Treatment can leave you feeling extremely weak, unable to do your daily chores. Mild exercising, eating healthy, and sleeping on time, can help mitigate the feeling of Fatigue and weakness, along with helping you bolster your mood.

  • Shortness of breath

Cancer Treatment and Prostate Cancer symptoms can lead to shortness of breath. A feeling of breathlessness, also called dyspnea, can be petrifying and happens in seconds. Staying calm and composed and avoiding heavy lifting and tiresome tasks until you completely recover from the Cancer Treatment can help reduce the feeling of breathlessness.

  • Heartburn and hiccups

Cancer treatment can also lead to heartburn and hiccups in rare cases. The medications of Chemotherapy and other cancer related drugs vitally trigger these hiccups and can result in irritability of the diaphragm nerves. Drink water slowly, do not force yourself to eat, take deep breaths, and bear down gently to avoid heartburn and hiccups.

  • Seizures

Seizures are uncontrollable movements of muscles that color when the nerve cells of the brain are disturbed and irritated. Seizures last for less than a few minutes and can occur multiple times during a day. Chemotherapy, brain swelling, blood clots, can all lead to seizures. Prostate Cancer patients rarely suffer from seizures . Mediating every day and staying calm can help minimize seizures.
