Re: Would hypnotherapy help?

Hi Lookingahead,


I noticed that no one has answered to your message yet, but I hope you will get a response very soon from other forum users.


I'm sorry to read that you've been finding chemo hard to cope with and hope you will find some comfort chatting with your fellow forum users.


If you want to find out more about hypnotherapy and chemo's side effects, please know that you can either ask questions to our nurses on our forum or email our nurses here. They should hopefully go back to you in less than a day and give you a response.


Otherwise, you can also call our free helpine on 0808 800 6000 (open Monday-Friday 9am-4pm, Saturday 9am-1pm, closed on Sunday).


Best wishes,


Breast Cancer Care

Would hypnotherapy help?

Hi Ladies

I've recently started having chemo following a BC diagnosis in the summer.  Having chemo was my choice as the benefit to me of having it would be quite small but, should I find BC returns at some stage in the future, I want to know I've done everything I can to prevent it.  I've had my second chemo session and it took me 5-6 days to begin to feel more like my normal self.  The thought of another four sessions is quite demoralising.  Has anyone experience of using hypnotherapy to boost a positive outlook which could also help the mental implications associated with this condition?  I know I'm lucky.  My BC is treatable so I shouldn't be such a wimp but I wondered if this could help others too?  I use meditation and I get out for walks whenever the rain allows.  All in all, it could be a lot worse.  Hope others are feeling better and manage some nausea-free days in the lead-up to Christmas.  xxx
