9780060974046: Women Talk About Breast Surgery: From Diagnosis to Recovery
From Library Journal:

This book's positive philosophy should help encourage women facing breast surgery to take an active role in determining the course of treatment. The book begins with brief descriptions of available treatments, ranging from lumpectomy to total mastectomy, including radiation, chemotherapy, and reconstructive surgery, and a glossary of terms is provided. The bulk of the book consists of in terviews, reproduced in a loose question-and-answer format, with women who have had these procedures and with physicians specializing in various forms of treatment. Most libraries probably already have a number of titles on the subject, but if there is a need for further material, this book offers a unique approach and is well organized. A complementary book is Deborah H. Kahane's No Less a Woman: Ten Women Tell the Truth About Breast Cancer, LJ 5/15/90, inspirational first-person stories of breast cancer survivors.--Ed.
