The anxiety of cancer surgery
The prospect of cancer surgery can seem daunting in every way. You can be worried about the physical implications of the surgery procedure and this is often compounded by a high state of emotional anxiety about what lies ahead.
The overwhelming urge to run away – “I really don’t want to do this” and “I hate the fact that I have to” are often the sentiments expressed by those facing cancer surgery.
For some people, cancer surgery is simply a practical solution to remove the tumour and they have very few, if any concerns. But, for the majority, cancer surgery is a traumatic experience that often brings great fear, anxiety and stress.
So many questions...
...and thoughts and even more worries.
Am I strong enough to pull through? Am I going to come around? How am I going to cope with the pain? Am I going to be an invalid? How long do I have to rely on others? How am I going to feel first time I look at myself in the mirror? Am I going to feel disgusted? Am I going to cope?
Am I still going to feel like me – or will it be a stranger in the mirror?
Remove the stress; give yourself the best chance to withstand the surgery. Wake up feeling positive about your recovery and embrace the stranger in the mirror. Find out how by visiting ourconsulting website, orcontact ustoday to book your consultation.
The importance of dealing with the stress of surgery is highlighted in a new studyclick here. The study shows scientifically that both Psychological and Physiological stress prior to, during and after surgery has a profound biological impact that
impairs the immune system’s functioning.
Psychological fear is just as important in suppressing immune competence as tissue damage itself.
The stress hormones such as Adrenaline, which are released before and during surgery, underlie much of the devastating effects of surgery on immune competence.
The authors suggest...
“...that there is a short window of opportunity (about a week) after surgery, when the immune system needs to be functioning maximally, in order to kill the tiny remaining bits of tumour tissue that are scattered around the body” click here
Dealing with those aspects of surgery that you worry about, and stress over, is crucial for creating a positive outcome

Claudette's Story: Cancer Surgery
“I went to Lily and Russell for help with making a decision about surgery for cancer. My emotional and physical state was fragile and I could not see myself surviving or thriving after the operation.
A few days after doing some intense and profound work with them, I had my operation. It went smoothly and my emotional state had been transformed.
I was very touched and impressed by the support, warmth and skill that Lily and Russell gave. The “Genie Pad” felt like a haven and a point on my journey where hope began. As soon as I entered it, I was affected by the bold colours and sense of creativity, and I began to ask myself, “dare I hope that things can be different?” I could hear the traffic outside, and the outside world had felt so harsh, my treatment so debilitating – that to walk into a golden room with weird, colourful artwork was not so much a shock
to my system, but a reminder to my system that there was a life away from rigidity, fear and illness, and one of happiness, flow and creativity. I had a sense that we were part of a team in working towards my recovery.
During my cancer treatment I had been terrified of the facts and the clinical jargon. However, in the “Genie Pad”, for the very first time, I was able to listen and learn how the particular cancer I had behaved, and how my immune system worked. It was empowering and informative, as well as being an invaluable aid to visual imagery.
I am grateful to have found Lily and Russell at just the time I needed them (in fact I wished I’d met them earlier during chemo!).”
