Health Tip: Exercising After Breast Cancer
(HealthDay News) -- Getting regular exercise can help breast cancer survivors regain strength and stamina.
The American Council on Exercise offers this advice:
Before starting exercise, talk to your doctor about any limitations, restrictions, precautions or recommended fitness activities.
Consider working with a professional fitness instructor or physical therapist who has experience with breast cancer survivors.
Start out slowly, even if you were active before your treatment.
Give yourself time to rest between exercise periods, and see your doctor if you have any problems.
Seek support from other breast cancer survivors.
