about this item

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 moreThis indispensable book will help you rediscover your capacity for joy as you move forward into the future—as a survivor.
