Step by Step: Your interactive guide to life with a brain tumour
Our Step by Step guide takes you through the practical changes you might experience following a brain tumour diagnosis. It covers everything from when you first feel poorly through to what happens after treatment.
Inside you’ll find an outline of what to expect following a diagnosis to help answer some of your concerns and arm you with the right questions to ask your healthcare team.
Our interactive Step by Step guide helps explain what happens after somebody receives a brain tumour diagnosis – from first experiencing symptoms and getting a diagnosis to receiving and recovering from treatment.
The guide is broken down into seven stages, with each stage having multiple different milestones you may experience – for example, these are the milestones for the “Having neurosurgery” stage of the guide.
As well as letting you know what to expect, we’ve also outlined key areas and ideas to help support you, every step of the way – including, what you should be experiencing, actions you can take and questions you should ask your healthcare team.
