Living with Breast Cancer

The Step-by-Step Guide to Minimizing Side Effects and Maximizing Quality of Life

Your complete resource for handling the physical and emotional effects of breast cancer treatments.

At the time of diagnosis, breast cancer patients are faced with many overwhelming decisions about possible treatments. Living with Breast Cancer provides you with an overview of what to expect from testing and treatment, which cancer specialists you may need to see, and common terms to use to help communicate your needs to your team. This empathetic resource full of relatable stories teaches patients and caregivers how to ask the right questions to get the best possible care. The authors explain how to minimize the symptoms and side effects of treatment and outline coping strategies to deal with the stress of breast cancer treatment, including the changes in your body from cancer and its therapies. The book helps readers

• make sense of their diagnosis
• set goals and prepare for treatment
• understand the different types of therapies, tests, and scans
• manage the symptoms and side effects of treatment, such as nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath, weight fluctuations, and depression
• learn what medications and lifestyle modifications can help with symptoms
• live and cope with progressive cancer

Living with Breast Cancer is your definitive resource for handling the physical and emotional effects of breast cancer and treatment.

Endorsements

"The authors provide a soup-to-nuts guide for breast cancer patients, whether readers are newly diagnosed or farther along in their breast cancer journey. This book hits all the right notes from understanding a diagnosis, knowing what to expect, and making what are sometimes difficult treatment decisions. While other books cover these same issues, this book's section on symptoms and side effects is what truly sets it apart. The palliative perspective is especially noteworthy."
