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 don’t begin to tell you all you need to know. 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.
