In the Bedroom

May 5, 2012

Let’s face it, many of us are struggling in the sexual intimacy arena.  Whether sexual problems are a result of chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, hormonal changes and/or emotional concerns doesn’t really matter; the reality is that most of us feel the impact of cancer, in the bedroom.  If you are like me, you may wish that your body would feel the way it did before cancer attacked it, you may feel embarrassed about the changes that have occurred and wishful for a more comfortable experience with your loved one.  You may also feel a bit reluctant to share these feelings with others.

To help you with some of your concerns (and mine), here is a link to a recent program held by our sister organization, LBBC (Living Beyond Breast Cancer). The expert speaker was Kara M. Nakisbendi, MD.  Even though this program is not exclusively for metastatic women, I hope that you will find it as helpful as I did.

My best,
