Though many patients are thrilled to ring the long-awaited final chemo treatment bell, that sense of relief tends to be short-lived for many. Many patients and survivors report experiencing a continued feeling of anxiety and unease.
Dr. Robert Trestman, has worked in the psycho-oncology field for years and recognizes that many people are suffering with treatable anxiety and depression, without the knowledge that they can give a voice to it. He notes that when such individuals are treated for their mental health as well, they're able to tolerate chemotherapy and radiation, recover from surgery far better than those without such supports and thus are able to engage in their lives more effectively than those without such resources.
