Hi Doctor Mama,
I’m the mom of a 14-month-old girl and I’m a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed and started treatment when I was 19 weeks pregnant. I did the traditional treatment of chemo and surgery (mastectomy and preventive hysterectomy) and I’m on Anastrozole for the next 10 years. But my oncologist does not advise me on nutrition. I’ve been trying to find that out on my own. I had a hair analysis done to check my mineral levels and I take several supplements to balance out the minerals that need it. I also just cut down on my wine intake after reading that 8 glasses of wine per week is considered too much. But other than that, I don’t know what to do. I should mention that I don’t eat red meat, pork, or dairy (I haven’t in more than 20 years) and I eat clean much of the time. I know there is no fail-safe plan. But what would you do?
