Rediscovering Well-being After Treatments

After completing treatments, people often feel a mix of concern and relief. The main focus during this transition is rediscovering well-being. If you’ve undergone prostate cancer treatment, you’ve likely faced intense moments of fear and challenging emotions.

It’s normal to fear a recurrence and worry about your overall health.

Certain times of the year may bring higher levels of anxiety, like the anniversary of the diagnosis or when waiting for test results. By participating in both familiar and new activities and visualizing positive outcomes, anxiety associated with the fear of recurrence should decrease over time.

It’s essential to remember that:

    • Your doctor and medical team offer regular follow-ups; they are there for you.
    • Living in the present and redefining priorities is important.
    • Engaging in projects dear to your heart that can help shift your focus is beneficial.
    • Proceeding at your own pace is essential.

This experience is now a part of you, and though you cannot erase it, you have the opportunity to explore new ways to alleviate anxiety and fear, and also to embrace a fresh outlook on the future. Here are some ideas to consider for improving your well-being.

Give yourself the necessary time to promote your well-being.

  1. Adopt a balanced diet: Choose healthy and nutritious foods, including antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, to strengthen your immune system. Plan meals and explore new healthy recipes to make your meals more interesting and delicious
  2. Prioritize great quality sleep: This should be one of your priorities as it plays a crucial role in your recovery and mental well-being. Establish a regular sleep routine by turning off electronic devices before bedtime, ensuring a comfortable room temperature, practicing relaxing rituals like deep breathing, and more.
  3. Engage in enjoyable and relaxing activities: Explore hobbies or activities that bring you pleasure and contribute to your relaxation. Treat these activities as important appointments with yourself, whether it’s a nature walk, reading a good book, listening to your favourite music, watching a movie, or any other soothing activity.

  4. Cultivate your social life: Surround yourself with positive people for emotional support. Plan enjoyable activities with loved ones, like meals or outdoor outings, to break free from daily stress. This shift in focus can help you see beyond the negatives and appreciate other aspects of life.

Accept help from others, as they want your well-being.

  1. Allow others to support you: This may include help with household chores, shopping, medical appointments, or other aspects of daily life. Clearly communicate the specific assistance you require, including the comfort of having a reassuring presence. Overcome any unease by recognizing that seeking or receiving help doesn’t diminish your inherent value or worth.

  2. Find emotional support: Share your feelings with loved ones or professionals to benefit from emotional support during difficult periods. Feel free to contact our support line or write to us. Our healthcare professionals can answer all your questions and provide a sympathetic ear when needed. Expressing emotions can sometimes be liberating.

Give your time and attention to others.

  1. Support your loved ones: Provide comfort through phone calls, virtual interactions, or in-person visits. Sometimes, a brief 5 to 10-minute exchange can make a significant difference for both you and them.

  2. Resolve problems as they arise: Adopt a proactive approach to solve challenges as they occur. Swift resolution not only minimizes stress but also helps maintain an optimal quality of life.
