Jillian joins me to share her story of breast cancer and the medically induced menopause that resulted from her treatment. She highlights the most difficult parts of her diagnosis and treatment, and shares what she’s learned during the past year in the hope that it will help other women undergoing breast cancer treatment or supporting someone who is.
Jill and I discuss the many different types of breast cancer and the treatments, including hormone blockers, and drugs for the side effects. We also talk about hormone replacement therapy for breast cancer patients (and how it’s often not an option), the life-changing magic of pelvic floor therapy, the importance of mammograms and colonoscopies, and what not to say to a cancer patient. This is an informative and hopeful conversation about a very important topic that you won’t want to miss.
