Question from Amanda: How important is exercising to increase energy levels after recovery, especially when your feeling so depleted?
Answers - Lillian Nail The studies of exercise as a way to manage fatigue in cancer patients have mostly been done with women with breast cancer during treatment. My personal experience with exercise following treatment for breast cancer and for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was very helpful.
