Do you dread returning to see your doctor?
Returning behind the microphone is show host Rev. Percy McCray and his lovely wife Anita to continue the conversation about anxiety of follow-up visits with one’s doctor and cancer recurrence. In part 1 of this discussion, the McCrays pulled back the curtain of their personal lives to candidly discuss their own inherent anxieties regarding Rev. Percy’s last hospital follow-up appointment with his oncologist and GI doctor.
This episode will provide clinical research data that unpacks this phenomenon more deeply from a clinical point of view and will offer recommendations of how to possibly support and address one’s experience with anxiety as it relates to the cancer experience. The goal for this discussion is to provide pathways forward for anyone who may be dealing with or may even be crippled by anxieties associated with being a cancer patient or caregiver.
