Tracking Your Side Effects
The American Cancer Society has created ways to record your side effects during treatments and help you keep track of your medications. The link below provides printable worksheets to document side effects experienced during chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, a pain diary and a medication list.
Tracking your symptoms will help the communication between you and your Oncology Team. Knowing what side effects you are experiencing, and to what extent, will help your doctors and nurses know how best to assist you.
The amount of medications involved with treating cancer can be overwhelming and very confusing to many people. It is vital to take the correct medication at the recommended intervals. The printable Medicine List may help to make this task easier.
