Finishing treatment

“People assume that having cancer is just like having the flu and that I should just fit back into my previous life with ease.”

We hope the information included here will answer some of the questions you have and will help you to relax and enjoy your great achievement of completing treatment. We have included some practical points about what happens at the end of treatment as well as mentioning how you might be feeling at this time.
