"Cancer treatment is a grueling course, leaving many people exhausted, weak and with a compromised immune system. Just getting out of bed can be a huge and daunting task, let alone exercising in a gymnasium or playing at the park with grandchildren. This is where a physical therapist comes in. Despite advances in medical treatments, individuals that receive cancer treatments typically experience extensive physical limitations during and after treatments. These limitations include and are not limited to cancer-related fatigue (CRF), pain, nerve damage, lymphedema and deconditioning.
There is strong evidence to support conservative management of these impairments through physical therapy."

"Meta-analyses and systematic reviews of the extant data conclude that exercise, particularly supervised exercise, improves quality of life in a broad array of patients with cancer both during and after treatment. In addition to conferring beneficial effects on symptomatology, emerging data suggest that exercise during these periods may lower the risk of death from cancer, although confirmatory data from adequately powered randomized trials are not yet available. Findings from ongoing and planned randomized controlled trials that will address the impact of exercise on cancer-related endpoints are needed to develop evidence-based clinical practice guidelines."
Regular exercise can improve your health and quality of life but it is important to develop an exercise program that is right for you. Your energy and fitness may be very different during and /or after treatment. Talk with a member of your health care team or physical therapist if you have questions or need additional advice on how to get started. Oncology Rehab and Wellness can help you on your way!

Is your lung cancer really ROS1-negative? Study shows it may be worth testing again
A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology shows that common laboratory tests used to determine ROS1 status all have inherent limitations that can lead to false-negative results. Some samples that were determined to be ROS1-negative by one test were shown to be ROS1-positive by another, meaning that some patients who could benefit from ROS1-directed therapy may be slipping through the cracks.

Advances in the use of newer precision cancer medicines is rapid and ALL individuals with NSCLC should undergo testing for biomarkers to determine if they can benefit from these newer drugs."

A Second Chance at Life: Kidney Cancer Was My Wake-Up Call to Healthier Living: "Regardless of how hard these past few years have been, it was a great wake-up call. I went into the very first surgery weighing 325 pounds. At that time, I was also told by the doctor that I had high blood pressure and diabetes. Since the surgery, I’ve made efforts to lose weight, be more active, and live a healthy life. I’ve lost about 50 or 60 pounds, work out at the gym regularly, and took up cycling."

"I was 34 years old when I was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma and told that I had 6 months to live. That was 7 years ago. I was an executive at a global aeronautics corporation at the time. When I heard I had cancer, a huge rush of emotions overwhelmed and intimidated me. I have a background in crisis management, so I had been trained to deal with stress and develop greater resilience, but I found that I had been confusing “acting tough” with “being mentally strong.” I realized that I needed to learn how to understand, accept, and manage my emotions."
