major lifestyle change for cancer patients. This week, Mayo Clinic
posted a podcast interview with experts in the field on the topic of
fatigue management. Click here to listen to the entire six-minute podcast.
Otherwise, I've outlined the important points for you below:
The following can reduce fatigue:
- Decrease stress
- Maintain balanced diet
- Follow up with regular appointments
- Exercise routinely
Regarding the exercise: don't push your body with extreme workouts,
but gently keep your body in shape. They recommend low-impact,
repetitive activities. Walking or casual bicycling are good examples.
Some studies show that relapse is much less likely if regular exercise
regimens are continued, both throughout the treatments and after.
