Back n the gym are the words I love to hear….I always suggest the rowing machine as an alternative exercise which has great exercise benefits and works a lot of different muscles. Try it sometime and best of luck!!

Boy you have had a journey.As you said, everyone is different and unique in there treatment and recovery but overall I think it has been great for your mind and body that you have kept exercising during your treatment and recovery. You might try bicycling or another activity that would give you the benefits but might not have the complications associated with running. And I'm all in on Livestrong and I have my yellow bracelet on as we speak. Best of luck and keep moving. And thanks for sharing!!
Hi Colleen….I was very fortunate tohave had a career as an exercise physiologist so I was able to keep going rather than start it up but my best exercise was the rowing machine as it is easily done at various levels of intensity….some bicycling as well
I had stage 3 diffuse large B cell lymphoma and experienced the usual side effects but was able to keep up an exercise routine throughout and since then research has shown how important exercise is as cancer has been shown to be hypoxic in nature
