• Stamina

    Asked by chuntley on Sunday, December 29, 2013


    On Dec. 11, 2013 I was given ARA-C and find I have very little stamina. My girls are taking me on vacation to Cancun Jan. 3, 2014 and I fear I wlll not be able to keep up. It is not going to be one of sightseeing etc. Mostly pool or beaching it. Any suggestions on how to maintain my strength?

      I can only tell you what worked for me. I was given good info from the Chemo staff. Take 1 Ibuprofen and 1 Claritin-D in the morning, I think I got a little energy from that plus it took care of the bone pain. I also took steroids for 5 days after each treatment, that gave me a lot of energy. Someone said it is a false sense of well being. My thoughts are I don't care if it was a false sense of well being, I felt good. I made it through my 6 treatments feeling a lot better than I had anticipated. Check with your doctor before trying this as everyone is different. I still take a nap when I need too. I hope you have a wonderful time in Cancun. Good luck.

      I no longer travel well. To deal with chemo treatment's fatigue on my last two week trip I limited activities to every other day. This allowed me to rest up every other day. For the most part this worked out. There were times during some days I just had to excuse myself rest. I suggested others around me to do the physically active things without me and that gave me time to rest. Listen to you body and do not over due.
