10 Tips for Breast Cancer Survivors
Date:10/22/2010

just too hard to do alone. Check your local YMCA for a LIVESTRONG exercise program near where you live.

5. Eat well. Your diet doesn't have to be perfect, but fruits, vegetables and whole grains can make a difference in how you feel. Starting to eat more healthy foods can make it easier to avoid the things that add weight or complicate digestion. Talk to a nutritionist if you are unsure what is healthy for you or if you have digestion problems.

6. Live a healthy lifestyle. Exercise and nutrition are part of the picture, but not the whole. To help ensure your long-term survival and a better quality of life, don't smoke, limit alcoholic drinks to one per day, and use sunscreen to protect your skin. Make sure you get sufficient vitamin D. Your doctor can do a blood test to determine the amount of vitamin D in your body and make recommendations for how to get the right amount.

7. Reclaim your body. Most women gain weight following breast cancer treatment. Weight control is important. Menopause, tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors can lead to body changes and weight gain. Check with your doctor and a nutritionist and consider joining an exercise program to help you control your weight and build muscle instead of fat.

8. Manage symptoms. Don't suffer unnecessarily. Talk to your doctor if you have fatigue or lack of stamina that does not improve with time, chemobrain that makes it hard to work or remember what you need to do, or other aches, pains and symptoms that make it hard to enjoy your life. Make an appointment to focus solely on the symptoms that reduce your quality of life.

9. Connect with other survivors. Your family and friends are great support pillars. However, many women find it immensely valuable to talk or exercise with women who have experienced what they have and truly understand what it's like to be a survivor.

10. Make use of resources. There are lots of options in the community and online for cancer survivors and
