In the United States, the number of cancer survivors has more than tripled to 12 million people during the past 30 years. 3 million are women who have experienced breast cancer. With this dramatic increase has come the need for reliable and effective information about post-treatment experiences and the quality of life, for help in living on and living well. Life after cancer is multifaceted ~ there are physical, emotional, spiritual, sexual and practical concerns after treatment ends.
“99% of adults treated for cancer experience at least one concern after treatment ends. 91% experience at least one physical concern and 96% at least one emotional concern. For the 4 areas most frequently reported as physical concerns ~ energy, concentration, sexual functioning and neuropathy ~ the majority had not received care. “
Cancer is an emotional, mental, physical and spiritual trauma that can break your heart. Then you are left to pick up the pieces and go on with your life. How do you recover from these heartbreaks? How do you heal your heart? Your spirit?
Cancer treatments can play havoc with your self-esteem and feeling attractive, not to mention your libido and sexuality. You may also experience emotional side effects like shame or feeling like damaged goods. Sexual side effects can include painful intercourse, loss of your libido and body parts that are missing or don’t function as before.
