Depends on you.: This probably depends on your situation with cancer. If it is curable, and treatment is successful, there likely won't be any. If it is involved, and treatment is complicated, loss and grief can happen at any time, depending on how you feel. Different people get affected by different things. Some are affected very little, and understand this is what they must do. Group therapy may help..
