Before and After Cancer Treatment, second edition

Heal Faster, Better, Stronger

A twelve-year cancer survivor and oncology rehabilitation specialist, Dr. Julie K. Silver wrote After Cancer Treatment to help others recover from the exhaustion and physical devastation that often follow treatment. This new edition of the book, retitled Before and After Cancer Treatment, describes improved therapies, better delivery of care, holistic care options, and energetics. In covering the benefits of prehabilitation strategies, which improve physical and emotional strength before beginning therapy, the book adds another dimension to the experience of cancer treatment.

Dr. Silver fills this survivor-oriented book with exercise and diet recommendations as well as step-by-step instructions for fighting fatigue, monitoring mood, and overcoming setbacks. Readers are encouraged to set balanced goals, take time to heal, and consult both conventional and alternative medicine.

Most people will live for many years after their initial cancer diagnosis—often cured or in remission. Some will live with cancer as a chronic condition. The goal is always to live life to the fullest, which means feeling as strong as possible—physically and emotionally. Dr. Silver recommends daring to dream again and preparing for the future. Wherever they are in their own journey with cancer, readers will find here a personal, practical, and powerful guide to recovery.

Reviews

"The key to the book's success, is the mixture of compassionate wisdom and intelligent advice derived from the author's unique perspective."—American Reference Books Annual

"It just has everything in this book and the author is meticulous to detail. . . Although written for a US market this book is extremely valuable for the UK healthcare setting too. The book is well referenced at the end of each chapter."—Nursing Times

"Dr. Silver's book encompasses not just emotional and physical healing but spiritual as well. Her credentials as a young mother and cancer survivor, in addition to being a physiatrist with a specialization in rehab medicine, make her work both authoritative and compassionate."—Paula J. Anastasia, RN, MN, OCN, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, reviewing a previous edition

Winer, MD, director, Breast Oncology Center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, reviewing a previous edition
