While these are common, in many cases they are manageable during the time of your treatment. Nevertheless, what about side effects that don’t seem to want to go away? These may include painfatiguehormonal changes such as hot flashes and changes in sexuality, lymphedema, and cognitive changes. In addition, medications you may take to prevent a cancer recurrence can have some side effects. These can all be distressing, but know that you are not alone.
