Cancer

From MayoClinic.com

Self-care

Eating well, managing stress and exercising are ways to promote your overall health and cope with any form of cancer.

Eating well

Good nutrition is especially important for people undergoing cancer treatment. But eating well can be difficult if your treatment includes chemotherapy or radiation therapy. You may feel nauseated or lose your appetite, and foods may seem tasteless. You may find that the last thing you want to do is plan meals.

Even so, eating well during cancer treatment can help you maintain your stamina and your ability to cope with the side effects of treatments. Good nutrition may also help you prevent infections and remain more active.

Remember these strategies for eating well when you don't feel well:

  • Eat protein-rich foods. Foods high in protein can help build and repair body tissues. Choices include eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese, peanut butter, poultry and fish. Kidney beans, chickpeas and black-eyed peas also are good sources of protein, especially when combined with rice, corn or bread.

  • Keep an open mind about the foods you might eat. Something that is unappealing today might taste better to you next week.

  • When you do feel well, make the most of it. Eat as many healthy foods as you can. Prepare meals that you can easily freeze and reheat. Also look for low-fat frozen dinners and other prepared foods.

  • Give meals a pleasant atmosphere. Whenever possible, eat at a table set with attractive dishes and flowers.

  • Pack calories into the foods you eat. For example, spread butter, jam or honey on bread. Sprinkle foods with chopped nuts.

  • Eat smaller amounts of food more frequently. If you can't face the thought of a large meal, try eating small amounts of food more often. Keep fruits and vegetables handy for snacking.

  • Stay active. Even if you don't feel well, try to stay physically active. A short walk or climbing the stairs can keep your muscles from deteriorating due to lack of use.

Managing stress

Methods for reducing physical tension can help you manage stress. One simple and powerful technique is to close your eyes and notice your breathing. Pay attention to each inhalation and exhalation. Your breathing will become slower and deeper, promoting relaxation. Another technique is to lie down, close your eyes and mentally scan your entire body for any points of tension.

In addition, activities such as running and swimming, which require repetitive movements, can produce a mental state similar to that achieved with meditation. The same is true of yoga and other stretching exercises.

Your doctor may have more specific suggestions about how to best care for yourself before, during and after treatment for ovarian cancer.

Coping skills

A diagnosis of cancer can be extremely challenging. Even when a full recovery is likely, you may worry about a recurrence of the disease. But no matter what your concerns or prognosis, you're not alone. Here are some strategies and resources that may make dealing with cancer easier:

  • Know what to expect. Find out everything you can about your cancer — type, stage, treatment options and side effects. The more you know, the more active you can be in your own care.

  • Be proactive. Although you may feel tired and discouraged, don't let others — including your family or your doctor — make important decisions for you. It's vital that you take an active role in your treatment.

  • Maintain a strong support system. Studies show that strong relationships are crucial for surviving cancer. Although friends and family can be your best allies, they may sometimes have trouble dealing with your illness. When this is the case, the concern and the understanding of a formal support group or other cancer survivors can be especially helpful. Although support groups aren't for everyone, they can be a good source of practical information. You may also find that you develop deep and lasting bonds with people who are going through the same things you are. Support groups for the families of cancer survivors are also available.

  • Set reasonable goals. Having goals helps you feel in control and can give you a sense of purpose. But don't choose goals you can't possibly reach. You may not be able work a 50-hour week, for example, but you may be able work at least half time. In fact, many people find that continuing to work can be helpful.

  • Take time for yourself. Eating well, relaxing and getting enough rest can help combat the stress and fatigue of cancer. Also, plan ahead for the downtimes when you may need to rest more or limit what you do.

  • Look for a connection to something beyond yourself. Having a strong faith or a sense of something greater than yourself seems to be a key factor in coping with and surviving cancer.
