More About After Breast Cancer by Hester Hill Schnipper; Lowell E. Schnipper
 
 
 
Overview
As women quickly discover, their life when treatment ends is very different from what it was before their diagnosis. Often exhausted, anxious, and emotionally volatile, they are beset by physical discomforts, fearful of intimacy, afraid for their children, worried about recurrence. Anticipating a return to normalcy, they discover that the old version of normal no longer applies.
There could be no more knowledgeable guide for women embarking on this complicated journey than Hester Hill Schnipper, who is herself both an experienced oncology social worker and a breast cancer survivor. This comprehensive handbook provides jargon-free information on the wide range of practical issues women face as they navigate the journey back to health, including:
Managing physical problems such as fatigue, hot flashes, and aches and pains
Handling relationships: your children, your partner, your parents, your friends.
How to regain emotional and sexual intimacy
Coping with financial and workplace issues
Genetic testing: why, whether, when
How to move beyond the fear of recurrence
And much more
This indispensable book will help you rediscover your capacity for joy as you move forward into the future as a survivor."
