Overview

At age 36, Julie Silver was enjoying an exciting career as a physician at the Harvard Medical School and a rewarding personal life as a mother, wife, and award-winning writer. But she had the sense that something was wrong. Two years and multiple doctors later, she was diagnosed with the breast cancer she had suspected all along and was catapulted into the role of cancer patient.

Like many cancer patients who experience serious side effects from treatment, Dr. Silver emerged from therapy feeling not better, but exhausted and physically devastated. As she worked to heal herself, she became determined to write a book to help others recover after cancer treatment.

Here Dr. Silver shares her own cancer journey and offers a step-by-step plan for physical healing, including exercise and diet recommendations and instructions for fighting fatigue, monitoring mood, and overcoming setbacks. Dr. Silver's advice comes from the heart—and from her experience as both a cancer survivor and a doctor who has spent her career helping people heal from serious illnesses and injuries. No matter where they are in their own journey with cancer, readers will find After Cancer Treatment a personal, practical, and powerful guide to recovery.

Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review

Belongs in any serious health library or collection focusing on cancer recovery.

Oncology
An invaluable reference for patients and health professionals as they navigate the murky waters of cancer treatment and survivorship.

— Stephanie Ross, PhD

Cure

This is one you need... Silver offers excellent descriptions of mind-body treatments... I like that she understands.

Dispatch
Like her practice, it draws on evidence-based medicine about what works to help people heal.

Library Journal
Undergoing cancer treatment can be so daunting that any consideration of life after treatment is often neglected. Luckily, Silver, director of the oncology rehabilitation program RESTORE (www.cancer-rehab.org), is herself a breast cancer survivor and uses her professional and personal knowledge to give readers the tools they will need to have a successful post-treatment experience. After Cancer is a hands-on guide to survival issues: exercise, diet, fatigue, mental health, spirituality, and how to seek assistance from both Western and alternative medicine. Helpful lists (e.g., symptoms of grief vs. symptoms of depression, problems that cancer survivors may encounter with exercise) and bibliographies at the end of each chapter will assist readers in exploring their own survivorship issues. An excellent appendix, "Where To Find Help," directs readers to general and specialized cancer information resources. Highly recommended for all general health collections in public libraries.-Olga B. Wise (breast cancer survivor), Austin, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Very Helpful to someone going thru cancer.

    I bought the book for my daughter-in-law as she has breast cancer. She found the book very helpful.
    The title says "After Cancer Treatment, but she still had the radiation to go thru. However she appreciated getting the book when she did as it gave her time to plan for the future.
