Other Care Associated with Mixed Tumors, Breast Cancer. Posted on July 23, 2012 View this journey (10 Experiences)

There is some standard care for breast cancer, which may include chemotherapy, radiation, etc. But I was open to anything that made me feel better, especially as I started racking up some side effects, some more serious than others. So for example, I learned biofeedback, I learned how to do healing touch, acupuncture was a big part of it – these were all prescribed by my doctor and managed through the integrated care center that they have for cancer patients. I also found a great deal of relief in warm water, so I would go to the “Y” in the warm water pools daily. My support group I count as being just as important as all those other cares in giving me relief, giving me knowledge, helping me go through this journey.
