Chemotherapy: After Side Effects Chart, Cycle Journal & Medical Appointments Diary for Chemo, Oncology, Cancer Treatment & Recovery
ABOUT THIS BOOK
- Chemotherapy treatment is planned by a cancer doctor who will explain the aims of the treatment and possible side effects. Your oncology doctor will ask you to sign a form agreeing to treatment and may talk to you about chemotherapy clinical trials. You may also see an oncology nurse and a pharmacist.
- Chemotherapy is usually given to patients as several sessions of treatment, with rest periods in between. Chemotherapy and the rest period make up one cycle of your treatment. Your cancer doctor will explain the number of cycles you need.
- Sometimes treatment involves having chemotherapy in more than one way and this should be explained to you by the doctor. If your chemotherapy treatment plan needs to be changed, your cancer doctor or nurse will explain the reason why. It may be because of the effects of the chemotherapy on your body or on the cancer itself. This varies from person to person, for example, your doctor may delay your chemotherapy for a short while, reduce the dose or perhaps put you on a different chemotherapy drug.
- Your cancer doctor and nurse will monitor you closely during treatment and they will find it useful if you are able to provide them with your own feedback using information you record in this journal. It saves having to remember details from memory.
- This journal will enable you to accurately document and regularly monitor how you are feeling; your mood and symptoms during your chemotherapy cycles and rest periods. For example you can record mood, side effects, sugar levels if diabetic and temperature.
- By completing each chart per cycle you will start to see trends and patterns to help manage and raise awareness on how your body reacts to the treatment, and you can share any information with your doctor and nurse if you wish.
- This decorative 8 x 10 journal contains up to 8 cycle charts in landscape, each consisting of 21 days per cycle. There are examples on how to complete the simple charts at the beginning of each chart.If you have cancer or know someone who does, this journal is a useful gift and self-monitoring tool used in conjunction as a personal diary, to record any type of oncology journey.
- The charts will assist in jotting down quick notes with ample space to record greater details, facts, thoughts and doodles. There are positive, uplifting quotes to reflect on during rest periods with an 'appointments' and 'dates to remember' section to remind you about medical and other appointments.There are twelve calming images to colour in using colouring pencils at the back of this book as a bonus. Paying attention to the present moment by colouring in beautiful illustrations and inspirational words can help improve your well-being; feel relaxed, calm and less anxious when emotionally upset and stressed. Let positive words sink into your sub-conscious mind to help support your state of mind to a higher level. Attentively and creatively colouring in peaceful images will enable you to focus on wonderful, vibrant colours.
