    Could exercise trigger seizures?

    I feel like I need to keep moving and not sit around, but I'm half way afraid to do to much. Has anyone done much exercising?

      Make sure to ask your doctors if they think you can exercise. Mine finally cleared me to exercise so I've been going to the gym a little bit. It's ironic but for about a month before I was allowed to, I wanted to way more than I do now that I can!

      Best of luck.

      I'm with ddkk3 - speak with your oncology team and find out what if any exercise is permitted.

      My Dr. has always told me to listen to my body. If I feel fatigue then rest, if I feel that I have energy do some form of exercise. I do get tired very quickly even when doing the simplest things. Sometimes just getting dressed in the morning wears me out. I walk when I feel I can but I don't push it. Walking seems to be the least stressful and the most helpful in gaining my strength back so I try to walk everyday even for just 20 min. If you want to really workout talk to your Dr. first and don't get upset if you can't do it like you used to. Start slow and it will come.

      Definitely get your doctor's opinion, but my husband's doc said let your body tell you...my husband isn't really into exercise, but I can tell you 1 month after surgery, he was rototilling the garden and doing all the other physical things that he did without hesitation...good luck....
