Braving Chemo: What to Expect, How to Prepare and How to Get Through It (Paperback)
Getting cancer is like a bomb going off in your life.
Having chemotherapy can feel like another bomb.
When faced with chemotherapy, you have many questions-but searching for answers on the internet can be overwhelming and pamphlets from your oncologist may not be enough.
In Braving Chemo, Harvard-educated physician and cancer survivor Beverly A. Zavaleta MD combines her medical expertise with a survivor's insight to provide practical advice for both chemotherapy patients and cancer caregivers. This book will give you clear answers to your most urgent chemotherapy questions, such as:
- How to keep your hair from falling out
- What to eat and how to prevent nausea
- How to face tough feelings such as fear of dying
Braving Chemo is a valuable resource about what to expect during chemo, how to minimize the side effects and how to live life as normally as possible when life itself is on the line.
