BREAST CANCER EXERCISE
Research published over the past year has shown promising results for a treatment for chemo fog – also known as chemo brain. That’s the non scientific name for the cognitive issues that can affect cancer patients after treatment.
I get really fired up when I see someone being taken advantage of – something unfair that just shouldn’t be happening – especially to cancer patients.
Last week I witnessed this type of injustice with a patient we’ll call Jane. Jane was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had surgery just over a year ago followed by chemo.
I thought we should dive a little deeper on the topic of tamoxifen and take a look at what it’s for, why it’s prescribed, as well as the pros and cons. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to make an informed decision and have a great conversation with your Oncologist if this is one of the treatments offered to you.
I’ve created an Exercise Journey Worksheet for Cancer Patients (see the link below). I want you to complete this honestly. Remember, this is just you talking to yourself. Use this worksheet as a tool to help figure out not only why you want to exercise but to find the barriers in the way of you making a positive choice for yourself.
