Editorial Reviews

Review

Very helpful, meaningful, and insightful for those who are journeying through cancer, and those who have recovered. Dr. Silver's book encompasses not just emotional and physical healing but spiritual as well. Her credentials as a young mother and cancer survivor, in addition to being a physiatrist with a specialization in rehab medicine, make her work both authoritative and compassionate.

(Paula J. Anastasia, R.N., M.N., O.C.N., Outpatient Gynecology–Oncology Clinical Nurse Specialist, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles)

A diagnosis of cancer changes one's life forever. After her diagnosis, Dr. Silver chose to continue healing—this time, healing herself. Her book is a gift to all cancer patients.

(Irene Pollin, MSW, author of Taking Charge and Medical Crisis Counseling)

Dr. Silver, who has faced cancer as both doctor and patient, has written an excellent practical guide for patients navigating the psychological and physical demands of a diagnosis of cancer.

(Raymond Lenhard, M.D., past president, American Cancer Society)

Dr. Silver is a remarkably insightful patient and physician. She has built upon her own professional experiences in rehabilitative medicine and her personal experience with a breast cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment. She seeks to make lemonade out of lemons, and she has done so with remarkable success.

(Eric P. Winer, M.D., director, Breast Oncology Center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute)

After Cancer Treatment is a hands-on guide to survival issues: exercise, diet, fatigue, mental health, spirituality, and how to seek assistance from both Western and alternative medicine... Highly recommended.

(Library Journal)

This is one you need... Silver offers excellent descriptions of mind-body treatments... I like that she understands.

(Cure)

Like her practice, it draws on evidence-based medicine about what works to help people heal.

(Elizabeth Cooney Dispatch)

An invaluable reference for patients and health professionals as they navigate the murky waters of cancer treatment and survivorship.

(Stephanie Ross, PhD Oncology)

Belongs in any serious health library or collection focusing on cancer recovery.

(Midwest Book Review)

Format: Paperback
Plenty of books discuss how to handle a diagnosis of cancer and how to consider and handle treatment - but very few survey what happens next. AFTER CANCER TREATMENT: HEAL FAST, BETTER, STRONGER comes from a doctor who is a cancer rehabilitation specialist and a breast cancer survivor: her guide blends personal experience and professional insights to offer up a plan for healing. From how to recognize withdrawal signs for medications to understanding the beneficial effects of proper nutrition, AFTER CANCER TREATMENT belongs in any serious health library or collection focusing on cancer recovery.

I absolutely loved this book. The author is so thorough and very helpful for someone who has had cancer, which is my situation. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who currently has or has had cancer or even to a loved one of someone who has cancer.

Format: Paperback
A must have book for all those people recovering from treatment for cancer,

whether surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation or a combination of treatments.

Dr Silver, a physician specializing in rehabilitation, and herself a cancer

survivor, explains how to deal with many issues. She has a common-sense,

down-to-earth approach on how to deal with a wide variety of side effects

including lack of energy, loss of appetite, and many others. She offers

helpful suggestions for coping with each of these problems and how to get

your life back to as "normal" as possible.

Format: Paperback
As a health and fitness professional of 25 years, breast cancer survivor, and wellness coach (coaching survivors), she is right on target with this book in helping survivors think through what they need to do to live their healthiest life. She gives a personal perspective as well as evidence based guidelines. I highly recommend this book!

Format: Paperback
Dr. Silver's writings in this volume are as approachable as her extensive work in the post-polio field, only with this topic, she brings the additional perspective of being a cancer survivor. At Ann's Place, our community cancer support agency, we feel comfortable recommending this book as a resource to our clients.

This is a good book for people who have very little general health knowledge. If you have paid attention to basic principles of health--nutrition and exercise--you don't need it. Otherwise great.
