How to share cancer history with a date?


Question from J.C.: How would you explain to someone on a date that you are in a good position to be cancer free?
Answers - Marisa Weiss, M.D. When you share the information about your breast cancer history, you can also add in that your doctors have reassured you that you have an excellent prognosis and every reason to be confident in your treatment, and that they've encouraged you to go on with your life and plan for the future. Also, time really helps in this department. The longer you are out from your diagnosis, the more reassured everyone is.

On Wednesday, February 20, 2002, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Intimacy, Sex and Your Love Life. Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D., Debra Thaler-DeMers, R.N., O.C.N., P.H.N., and Marisa Weiss, M.D. answered your questions about how to improve your sex life during and after breast cancer treatment.
