WHAT IT IS
Sleep disorders are a common issue for people who have undergone cancer therapy, and it can persist for months or even years after treatment. There are many reasons why cancer patients may have trouble sleeping, such as physical illness, pain, hospitalization, immobilization, drugs, and other cancer treatments, as well as the psychological impact of having a life-threatening disease.
HOW TO TREAT IT
Fortunately, there are many ways to manage sleep disorders and improve your sleep quality. One effective treatment is behavioral therapy, which has shown positive results in managing sleep disorders. This therapy focuses on developing good sleep habits and reducing the impact of anxiety and stress on your sleep.
In addition to therapy, engaging in activities that improve your psychological well-being and reduce stress, like hobbies or yoga, can also help you get better sleep. Moreover, there are several forms of sleep aids that may help you deal with your sleep problems for at least a short period of time. A specialized doctor, like a psychiatrist, can help you choose the best medication for you and prescribe it for you.
It's important to remember that seeking assistance for sleep problems is a great first step in improving your sleep quality. With the right treatment, you can regain control over your sleep and wake up feeling rested and rejuvenated.
