    Waiting on results

    Still have 2 weeks to go for his first Cat Scan after treatments. Energy level is extremely low. Trying to get him to take a walk.

      He should also continue hydration even when not being infused. Is he drinking Ensure or Boost? He definitely needs to get some exercise, even only a walk daily. He can also use a hand exerciser ball while sitting to help strengthen his arm muscles. The first place we lose weight is in the muscle and we become weak.

      Our local YMCA has several programs for cancer survivors including the LIVESTRONG program, They also offer a personal trainer. And aquatics programs. I still think that a buddy might be best able to encourage him to walk.

      Kate: Yes, exercise is key here. Check with your local YMCA or community center for working out. My hospital also has a fitness center with one-on-one instruction. Also, check with the American Cancer Society to inquire about exercise in your local community.
