What is the “New Normal” after #breastcancer?

Most cancer survivors will tell you that life isn’t the same after a cancer diagnosis. During treatment a “new normal” is often maintained. Each cancer presents different challenges and realities. Mel Majoros discusses how her life changed after her breast cancer diagnosis in this video. Cancer changes everyone it touches. Mel says 99% of the cancer survivors she has met have been changed for the better by the disease. She embraces the changes that she has had to deal with and recommends others do the same.

What role do genetics play in #breastcancer development?

About 5% to 10% of breast cancers are believed to be hereditary. Most inherited cases of breast cancer are associated with just two abnormal genes. These are the BRCA1 (BReast CAncer gene one) and the BRCA2 genes. However, not every case of breast cancer is associated with these two genes. Also, the presence or absence of abnormalities on these genes can affect the way cancer is treated. Survivor and advocate, Elyn Jacobs, describes the role genetics play in breast cancer in this video.

What is your hope for #breastcancer treatment in ten years?

We asked advocates at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium this question. Their answers about what they wish for breast cancer treatments in ten years varied. From better outcomes and survival rates, to fewer diagnoses and less side effects, everyone can get behind these advocates hopes. Treatment isn’t easy on any patient. Like these advocates, we hope that treatment strategies continue to improve to make the process as easy as possible on breast cancer patients.

What are your hopes for breast cancer treatment in ten years? How do they compare to these advocates’ hopes?

Hear more about advocates hopes for breast cancer treatment in ten years in this video.

What side effects should I expect after I undergo #chemotherapy?

Many women are concerned with the side effects of chemotherapy. While in the past, short-term side effects such as nausea and mouth sores were common side effects of chemotherapy, these are much less of an issue today. Prior to beginning chemotherapy, you’ll receive an anti nausea medication and, if you will be on a regimen that will make your white blood cell counts low, you will also be given a medication intravenously to keep your white counts normal, keeping your risk of infection low. Other side effects may include hair loss, tingling or numbing (though you should tell your doctor if this occurs to be sure that nerve damage is not an issue), and fatigue. Most women, Dr. Margileth says, are pleasantly surprised that chemotherapy is not as awful as they had originally thought.

Hear more about short-term chemotherapy side effects in this video.

What are some tips for dealing with anxiety after #breastcancer treatment?

Enduring breast cancer treatment is no easy task. It is normal to feel anxiety and stress. Experiencing prolonged episodes of anxiety is not healthy and can lead to more serious conditions.

#Breastcancer doesn’t just impact your body.

For Elyn Jacobs, this was clear when her outlook on life changed after her breast cancer journey. With food, Elyn says that each bite can either contribute to her cancer, or it can contribute to her wellness. While passing up the birthday cake isn’t easy, for Elyn, it keeps her well. It’s not about calories or weight, she asserts: it’s about well-being. Additionally, Elyn has appreciated all that life has to give her, and tries to find joy in every day.

Hear more about how Elyn’s outlook on life has changed after her breast cancer diagnosis in the video below.

Sometimes #breastcancer robs us of our faith, and we can slip into fear and distrust.

If this has occurred for you, it’s time to take a leap of faith and assume that you will be guided to know what you need at the right time and in the right way. Your past disappointments don’t lead to doom and disaster if you let go of resentment and fear. The only way we can synthesize past experience is to take healthy action with an open heart and with the knowledge and belief that what we need will be shown to us. Life is an invitation, and a leap of faith invites the right actions and experiences for us. By the way, I’m not talking about your spiritual beliefs or faith in anything other than you.

Taking a leap of faith is necessary, even when it comes to your sex life after breast cancer. Barbara Musser discusses how to take that leap here.
