After Breast Cancer
Breast cancer often takes an enormous toll on a woman’s physical and emotional well-being and will in most cases be proportional to the extent of her treatment. What happens next, to a large degree, depends on our approach to the after-effects of cancer. We can try and forget it all, put it behind us, or we can embrace what has happened, accept it and move forward in a more focused and considered way.
You may think why bother? However the fact is, having had cancer, it is in our own best interest to try and improve our diet, lifestyle and environment. Increasing evidence shows that by making such changes, our risk of a breast cancer recurrence should be reduced. Healthy lifestyle choices can also help us to feel better both physically and emotionally right now.
