Type: 
Book
Description: 

A guide through the medical, practical, and emotional issues of recovery from treatment and long term survivorship. The author is a physician and long term lymphoma survivor. In this best-selling book, Dr. Harpham encourages survivors to find a new normal after cancer. In the chapter on fatigue, she introduces the term, Post-Cancer Fatigue, for the fatigue that persists after completion of cancer treatment when remission is achieved and all known causes of fatigue have resolved or been ruled out. She discusses late effects of treatment, check-up anxiety, survivor's guilt, diet, exercise, and handles for getting through the rough times. Dr. Harpham believes that obtaining knowledge, finding hope, and acting effectively helps patients.
