What to expect during cancer treatment

Your body will go through changes during cancer treatment. You may need to make changes to your diet and some of your daily activities. This is completely normal. Cancer treatment can affect your oral health, appetite, digestive system, and overall energy level.

University of Iowa Health Care nurses and therapists have put together a collection of helpful advice for conditions you may encounter during and after your cancer treatment. Everyone’s experience will be different, so don’t let this collection of “what ifs” raise your anxiety. Our care teams are ready to answer your questions and concerns throughout your treatment.
