Conversations With Breast Cancer Patients

Front Cover
iUniverse, Dec 31, 2002 - Medical - 230 pages
From diagnosis through progression of breast cancer, patients have confided to their oncologist their fears, their hopes, the personal problems created by their illness, their way of coping or their inability to cope with the disease and its treatment. They discussed their options and throughout they managed to laugh but also did not hide their tears. The emphasis of Conversations With Breast Cancer Patients is on communication between patient and physician and on their close collaboration in the therapeutic decision process. Their conversations open for the reader, a window into the thoughts of both. They describe how the patients and their physician join in the effort of making life, with or after breast cancer, livable and, whenever possible, enjoyable. Conversations With Breast Cancer Patients, Dr. Greenberg's first book, is not a guide for treatment, it is a candid view on how to live with a life-threatening illness.
