Treatment of cancer that is kind to the mind and body I don’t think it’s appropriate to use the term miraculous easily, but I can miraculously detect osteosarcoma early, miraculously narrow the resection range, and miraculously amputate the right leg. It wasn’t, and life was connected. In the days when I developed childhood cancer, the expression miraculous may be used properly. This time, as I experienced such a miracle, I developed childhood cancer, and after surgery, hospitalization, anti-cancer treatment, follow-up visits, and home medical treatment. I would like to write what I think about [cancer treatment that is kind to the mind and body]. At that time, I developed childhood cancer when I was 10 years old, but the period from the examination to the operation was very short, and I performed the operation within about a week from the first examination. My doctor explained to my parents that in the case of childhood cancer, cancer cells proliferate quickly, so there is concern about the expansion of the onset site and metastasis to other sites. In my case, my doctor told me that it would be better to have surgery as soon as possible. How early surgery can be performed to stop the growth of cancer cells depends on how early the surgery can be performed, but if the patient is a child, especially if the patient is in elementary school or younger, the mental burden will be great. It’s big and there are other things to consider besides surgery. It is “closeness”. Even adults who have had various experiences become lonely when they are hospitalized, and if their body is affected by cancer, they feel lonely and are likely to be crushed by loneliness. Will be. Needless to say, for children who have little life experience. As a childhood cancer survivor, I can say it clearly. What is needed for a childhood cancer patient in such a situation is “closeness”. I want my parents to be close to me the most. Therefore, parents should be close to their child so that the mental burden on the child is reduced as much as possible. You don’t have to do anything. However, just by staying close to your side, you will feel calm and mentally stable. In my case,
, I always had my mother snuggle up to me. I remember being very happy. I was able to forget about cancer while my mother was by my side.
