Living in the Postmastectomy Body: Learning to Live in and Love Your Body Again
Undergoing a mastectomy is a devastating experience. This unique and hopeful coping guide fills a gap in women’s health literature. While there are many fine books on breast cancer, none deal with the very real, and very practical issues facing a woman who is about to undergo a mastectomy and who then must deal with the challenges of living in the post-mastectomy body. Written from a professional and personal experience, Zuckweiler covers the practical, physical, psychological, social and sexual aspects of recovery. And, pain and special needs of mastectomy patients.
