POST-CANCER CONCERNS Once cancer patients have undergone surgery and finished chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments, they may face health risks that warrant consultation with a mental health professional. For instance, it is not uncommon for cancer patients to experience problems with cognitive function (often called “chemo brain” or “chemo fog”), which may include difficulty with memory, thinking speed, and focusing on complex tasks. While these difficulties may resolve in the months after the end of therapy, they can persist after treatment has ended. Cancer patients may also suffer from anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder after treatment, which may be helped with behavioral counseling. Help is also available for cancer-related distress caused by concerns about recurrence, managing finances, and perceived body image. Our mental health center welcomes people of all ages and from all backgrounds. Our professionals collaborate with clients to create a plan which addresses specific needs and goals. A caring approach integrating evidence-based practices is designed to address life’s struggles effectively in a way that is also uniquely tailored to you and your family. Please call our office today at 712-364-3500 or 800325-1192. Our address is 700 East 2nd St., Ida Grove. We help people cope with everyday living. P.S. Cancer patients may also consider talk therapy for the treatment of intimacy issues stemming from sexual dysfunction or poor body image.
