Once the treatment has finished it is often a surprise to cancer survivors and their families that life doesn’t just suddenly return to the way it was before the diagnosis. People are often still recovering from the trauma of the whole experience. They may be dealing with the physical and emotional after-effects of their treatment, or may be dealing with existential issues around their own mortality or sense of purpose. Others may feel a little lost without the medical team whom they were used to seeing every day, and many will feel a heightened fear about their cancer recurring. These and other concerns are very common during this transition period after treatment.
