I have just signed up for an exercise programme similar to this one reported from the University of Alberta, Canada The video is worth watching because the results are impressive.
It looks as though there is a greater chance of completing chemotherapy successfully, a higher chance of complete remission, greater feeling of well being and perhaps a longer life with exercise.
Other studies have demonstrated that cancer-related fatigue is lessened by exercise and that, of course, muscles wasted by steroids can be strengthened again.
For myself I need to remedy my proximal myopathy, which the dexamethasone has produced and try to stop an hour's snoozing after lunch. The rest I will take on trust, but before I got ill, I used to attend a personal trainer every week and now i shall have one again thanks to the Oncology Center which is funding this project. It will be free for the first three months and if it seems to be working, then i shall continue to pay for it.
