Often exhausted, anxious, and emotionally volatile, they are beset by physical discomforts, fearful of intimacy, afraid for their children, worried about recurrence.

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."
