Semi-structured interviews with 54 cancer patients were conducted longitudinally, starting 2 to 3 weeks after their diagnosis. Follow-up interviews were carried out at 3, 6, and 12 months after diagnosis. This study identified that for the interviewees, weight changes had complex implications for patients with cancer, extending beyond physical problems into psychosocial issues. The authors highlighted that for patients recovering from cancer, this acts as a constant reminder of the diagnosis and treatment. The authors also highlight the importance of nutritional psychosocial rehabilitation programs during the cancer trajectory.
