The breast cancer experience slows down your body. It takes longer to do lots of things, including getting interested in and starting and finishing sexual intercourse. Sex may be uncomfortable or even painful if you’ve been thrown into sudden-onset menopause. No surprise that you tend to have less sex, for now.
Beside above, will I ever feel normal again after breast cancer?
Most patients, I think, cannot live up to this standard and take time out during treatment. Some feel pretty normal after a year. Some might take two years. Yet others might battle chronic treatment side effects and never feel quite normal again.
Considering this, does breast cancer shorten your life?
Breast cancer has a relatively high survival rate. An estimated 9 out of 10 people who have breast cancer are still alive five years after they were diagnosed, according to the American Cancer Society. The problem, however, is women tend to gain weight during breast cancer treatment.
Can you be completely cured of breast cancer?
There is no “natural” cure for breast cancer. Medical treatments are necessary to remove, shrink, or slow the growth of tumors. That said, you may use certain complementary therapies and lifestyle changes alongside standard medical treatments to help: control symptoms of breast cancer.
