Radiation Oncologist gives 5-star review after using surgical tips!
5.0 out of 5 stars
useful, easily followed suggestions that made my surgical experience ..., May 30, 2017
By Mitchell D. Achee
This review is from: Thriver Soup, A Feast for Living Consciously During the Cancer Journey (Paperback)
I am in remission from a rare form of cancer called leiomyosarcoma. I recently had hip replacement surgery which I delayed having for four years because of fear that the surgery would lower my immune system's control of potential undetectable tumor micrometastases. When I finally decided to have the hip surgery, I wanted to do everything I to adversely impact my immune system as little as possible. Heidi has a full section in her book, Thriver Soup, about how to get out of the hospital a day early after major surgery. She has many specific, useful, easily followed suggestions that made my surgical experience much easier than it otherwise would have been. For me one of her best suggestions was to ask for tramadol rather than morphine or dilaudid for pain relief after surgery. Heidi explains why that is important in her book. Using the information provided in the book I was also able to get off of the pain medication long before the doctors expected. How to prepare and deal with major surgery are just a few of the hundreds of valuable healing solutions provided in Thriver Soup. I highly recommend this book to all cancer patients.
