Bone Cancer Treatment

Proper Nutrition During Treatment

It is important to eat well during and after treatment, because eating well may help patients feel better and have more energy. However, eating well can be hard, especially during or soon after treatment. Side effects of bone cancer treatment can cause poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and food to taste differently. A registered dietitian can suggest ways to deal with these problems.
 

Clinical Trials of New Treatment Options

Before starting treatment, patients may want to consider taking part in a bone cancer clinical trial. A treatment clinical trial is a bone cancer research study that is meant to help improve current treatments or obtain information on new treatments for patients with bone cancer. When clinical trials show that a new treatment for bone cancer is better than the standard treatment, the new treatment may become the standard treatment.
 

Follow-Up Care After Bone Cancer Treatment

Follow-up care after treatment for bone cancer is important. Even when there are no longer any signs of cancer, the disease can return if there are undetected cancer cells that remain somewhere in the body after treatment. During follow-up care after treating bone cancer, your doctor will monitor your recovery and check for recurrence of the cancer. Checkups help ensure that any changes in your health are noted and treated if needed. Between scheduled visits, you should contact your doctor if you have any health problems.
