Book Description

How will sex be after breast cancer? How does a couple cope with the sensitivities? For both women – and men – the question is rarely asked.

Soon after her 25th birthday, Katherine Schmidhofer was diagnosed with breast cancer, and her doctor advised an immediate mastectomy. Her breasts were removed, and she underwent ghastly sessions of chemotherapy and hormone therapy.

She wondered whether she would ever have children. She mourned her incapacity to breastfeed. She asked herself whether a man would ever want her again. How, she thought, would he react to her scars and her new breasts?

Where many women despair after breast cancer, Katherine did something remarkable: she chose to live her life – to the full. And she chose love. In this beautifully warm, often funny, and deeply moving memoir, Katherine guides us through the intricacies of love and sex after the Big C – and shows why every new day is a triumph of hope and courage.

Quotes from Dr Katherine Schmidhofer’s Kindle Single:

‘I realise that many patients require a little sugar-coating, but I was not one of them. Give me my drink straight up! The doctor . . . proceeded to tell me that he thought it probably was cancer . . .’

‘It’s not easy losing a sexual pleasure zone such as the breasts . . .’

‘One of the funniest things I recall . . . was that the doctors tried to go up a cup size, as I had suggested they attempt, but they did not think it looked good . . .’

Anybody looking for help, would find this book very informative.
