How will I feel emotionally?

Many patients feel tired during radiation therapy, and this can affect emotions. You also might feel depressed, afraid, angry, frustrated, alone, or helpless.

Getting involved with a support group and meeting other people with cancer may help you. Ask your doctor or call the American Cancer Society for more information about ways to connect with others who share your problems and concerns.
