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.
