From the Back Cover:

Cancer specialists give you the knowledge, advice, and--most importantly--the hope you need to prepare for treatment

Research shows that well-informed cancer patients fare better during treatment and recover more easily than those who are in the dark about their illness. Coping with Chemotherapy and Radiation answers all of your questions, providing sound advice to prepare for and manage your cancer treatment.

Compassionate and easy-to-read, Coping with Chemotherapy and Radiation helps you psychologically prepare for treatment and offers advice about diet and lifestyle adjustments that will ease your discomfort. You'll learn about the most current pain management techniques, drugs, surgical procedures, and advances in radiotherapeutic technology. Coping with Chemotherapy and Radiation also explains in clear detail:

  • Combination therapy and how surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation work together
  • The latest advances in diagnostic radiology, including PET scanning
  • The vital role of pain management, including dietary changes and medication, to ease the side effects of treatment
  • How to form questions to ask your team of doctors, plus a frequently-asked-questions section
  • The value of support groups and counseling
