"Rabbi Weinsberg draws on his own medical ordeal to bring guidance and comfort to others." -- Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of "When Bad Things Happen to Good People"
CONQUER PROSTATE CANCER empowers patients to face diagnosis with dignity, explore their options realistically, and tackle recovery with optimism and determination. As the author and his wife share the most intimate details of their prostate cancer journey, readers learn how to:
- Become an active member of their medical team
- Reduce pain and stress and renew vitality
- Overcome impotence and incontinence
- Enhance intimate relationships
- Draw strength from faith, family, and friends
The first book to emphasize robotic surgery for prostate cancer from an informed layman’s perspective, CONQUER PROSTATE CANCER discusses the latest research and advances in treatment, and profiles nineteen other patients who chose various treatment options.
Prominent robotic surgeon Dr. Robert Carey discusses medical and patient-care concerns and the author's wife provides a running commentary, sharing her thoughts about how she and her family coped with the disease and its effects.
With its low-key humor, positive and hopeful tone, and well-researched facts, this book is a powerful tool for surviving prostate cancer.
