Many cancer patients have trouble sleeping, especially cancer patients who have had chemotherapy. These problems can continue even after cancer treatment has ended.
It is normal to wake up 1 to 2 times each night, but it is not normal to stay awake. If these symptoms occur three or more times a week, you may have a sleep problem.
Sleep problems can be caused by many factors in your life, including stress and the medicines used to treat cancer. Younger people are often more likely to have sleep problems than older people.
There are a number of things you can try to help you manage your sleep problems.
