Beyond Breast Cancer - new Mayo Clinic book
I just received my copy of a new book by Mayo Clinic "Beyond Breast Cancer" – A Mayo Clinic Guide to Healing & Wellness. I have not read, but Table of Contents looks like will be very helpful in dealing with all those "What now?" questions.
I was diagnosed 5 years ago, Had surgery, chemo, radiation, and rechecks since then. Next week have my 5 year post treatment recheck. It always brings up so many emotions and new questions. Definitely going to read book prior to appt.
From about this book:
"Beyond Breast Cancer: A Mayo Clinic Guide to Healing and Wellness is a supportive, practical guide to life after diagnosis and initial treatment for breast cancer. In this short, accessible book, Mayo Clinic breast cancer specialists Tufia C. Haddad, M.D., and Kathryn J. Ruddy, M.D., and colleagues offer their insights on how to navigate this new phase of the journey, including monitoring for signs of recurrence; optimizing diet, sleep and exercise habits; coping with lingering treatment effects; improving sexual health; managing money and insurance issues; and much more.
Use this book to help you through those months after treatment is over and when treatment is ongoing. Return to it as needed. Life after a diagnosis of breast cancer is rarely the same as it was before. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be richer, more meaningful and perhaps even healthier. It’s about more than just surviving. It’s about living the life you were meant to live.
