Tips and advice for any mental and emotional side effects of treatment

I know it's hard when you hear that word CANCER. I was in a daze for a week because I didn't talk to someone in the NHS. I phoned the nurse allocated to me and I had a brilliant diagnosis from her. My wife was with me and the nurse even talked her through the process I'm going through . After I left it was a different me from the week before, specialist nurse was a God send.

How this treatment impacted my life the most

I've not had or getting treatment at the moment just active monitoring. If anything changes I'll be getting MRI scans and then treatment if required

If I had to do it all over again, would I choose the same treatment?


Why did I give this answer?

Not having treatment, so I cannot really comment on this
