You tube have some specially for bc. I'm not very bendy and I've been doing yoga 1-2 a week for quite a while but seem to have improved now I'm doing a bit every day (still not very bendy though) 😂
Cassie, I've also bought one of those mini fitness trampolines as someone OH knows who had bc recommended it as a fairly gentle way to get heart rate up and to help with lymph drainage. I think Ruth also read something similar.
Cassie, once you have an idea what you're doing it's quite good as you can adjust it to how you're feeling, as it has restorative poses as well as stronger ones and it's easy to adjust the time length too. The only day I don't do any is usually the day after chemo. I also read it can help with breaking down scar tissue and also how the body reacts to chemo, have a google of yoga for breast cancer.
Hi Cassie, I'm doing yoga daily, I do my own thing as I used to do a yoga class prior to chemo but you'll find it on you tube and you might also be able to get it on your tv (we have sky and they have some fitness channels which usually have yoga on.
Karen, shame I don't live a bit nearer I'd have run you a packet over! I stocked up but haven't eaten them this cycle yet.
😂I don't have any patience for knitting, but do crochet. I bought some wool just before I started chemo to make another hat but haven't had the motivation to start it yet! Perhaps now it's getting colder I might be a bit more inclined to start it.
Buddyfan, I'll make sure the track is clear and the 🚂 is nice and warm for you tomorrow! Hope you've been getting your fluids in today! I've seen the monty bojangles choccies in our Tesco but not sure which type they were, someone bought me some after my surgery they were lush 😋
Rach, is your beanie crocheted or knitted?
Rach, love the new beanie!
Karen, cycle 1 I ate some prunes (came in a packet from dried fruit section, think they were whitworths) they were very soft and quite nice actually, not like the tinned stuff I remember as a kid. The hospital prescribed me with laxido they are dissolvable sachets, I use them twice a day for the first 2 days and am usually ok.
Shi, -10? 😱😱😱😱😱 think I should've added the extra duvet when I changed the bed this morning!
