how soon can i really exercise

I know this sounds a bit sad but I am desperate to get back to the gym. Its not that I am feeling 100% better but I want to start exercising as soon as I can. I had mx and SNB on 15th July and have radiotherapy planned as soon as fully healed. I have a seroma the size of a satsuma under my armpit but apart from being uncomfortable it doesnt cause any pain. Does anyone know how soon I can go to the gym, or go swimming. I am worried that I may do damage if I go back too soon but I feel like I will go mad if I cant get moving soon

Hi there,

Here’s the link to BCC’s publication for exercise after treatment, I hope you find it helpful.
