After a breast cancer diagnosis, many women face procedures ranging from surgery to chemotherapy to radiation, and often all three. Even once those treatments are complete, the recovery process isn't over.
Naveena Allada, MD, an oncologist on the medical staff at Baylor Medical Center at Irving, says, "It really doesn't end at that point. There's quite a bit of follow-up these women go through."
Here are some of the long-lasting health concerns breast cancer survivors face, and the strategies they can try to keep themselves healthy.
Dr. Allada says, "Adjusting to the new normal can be challenging for some women. But I always tell them that after going through treatments they become much stronger than they were before."
