Once surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment are over, there is no manual, prescription or remedy to help you recover from the physical, emotional, and mental impact of the experience, nor help you restore yourself back to normal, whatever that may be.
Although you probably have been looking forward to the day when treatment is over, it may seem a bit anticlimactic when you’re finally done, and you may find yourself pondering “What do I do now?”
Your medical team is no longer an integral part of your nearly everyday routine, and you’re left of to your own devices to care for yourself and figure out how to live beyond breast cancer and get your life back on track. Aside from the cycle of periodic check-ups and diagnostic tests, your recovery is all up to you.
So, what do you do?
