While medical professionals prepare you for the physical effects of cancer, they seem to forget about your spirit, your emotions, and your sexuality. So how do you put cancer behind you and go back to being the woman you used to be?
In Intimacy after Breast Cancer, two-time breast cancer survivor Gina Maisano compassionately discusses this and more in an open, honest way, helping you rediscover the woman you were before your battle with this disease.
Part One of this book is about regaining control of your body and your spirit. It examines ways in which you can deal with the emotional and physical scars of breast cancer so that you can regain confidence and self-esteem. Part Two is about reclaiming your sexual self. In candid detail, and addressing both married and single survivors, it explores how you can rediscover your sexuality after breast cancer. Throughout the book, stories contributed by other survivors offer a wealth of personal perspectives and specific examples of physical recovery and emotional healing.
Love and intimacy do not have to end because of breast cancer. In Intimacy after Breast Cancer, Gina uses expert advice, scientific research, and firsthand experience to help you make the difficult transition from cancer patient to vibrant, self-confident woman.
