thoughts on tesuming high stress life following breast radiation?

Take control: Working following breast radiation is healthy but how you work may not be. After a diagnosis of breast cancer and subsequent treatment. Your emotions and life style are essential part of a successful recovery. Individual psychotherapy with or without medication is an important way to stay healthy and undo destructive ways of coping. There are professionals who are psycho-oncologists. Consult one.

It can be done, but.: A high stress life can contribute to many health and emotional problems. Why not find ways to reduce the stress in your life? You can resume a full life after breast radiation, but initially you may feel more fatigue than usual. After about six months you should be back to your usual energy level. I hope you can find ways to reduce your stress! very best wishes for your future.
