Breast Cancer and Exercise. Englewood Hospital funds my Pilot exercise program for Breast Cancer patients. Follow Up 6 months after
Original post: http://superbodysuperbrainblog.wordpress.com/2012/10/17/breast-cancer-and-exercise-englewood-hospital-funds-my-pilot-exercise-program-for-breast-cancer-patients-follow-up-6-months-after/

October is a phenomenal month especially because it raises awareness for one of the most devastating conditions called Breast Cancer and how we as a society we can help in many different ways through research, treatment and recovery. I am still so intrigued by this condition also because my Godfather Dr Miguel Sanchez MD is one of the most important pathologists in the country. He works at Englewood Hospital changing lives every day. I visit him to New Jersey almost every weekend to watch Spanish soccer  and since I am hungry for knowledge I love asking him questions about his incredible work!.I like discussing with him about the condition and how physical activity and exercise can help improve patients mental and physical feel being.

That is why when Englewood Hospital offered me to run An individualized Super Body, Super Brain Pilot for Breast Cancer Patients i was thrilled. I did extensive research and started designing an exercise program that will help mainly with energy levels, balancing hormones, recover mobility and improve strength especially conditioning. 6 Months have gone by and I still get emails from the attendees asking me what are the exercises that they need to incorporate to their life. I am now discussing with Englewood Hospital how to make it permanent and start really monitoring improvements in Breast Cancer patients

I have found that one of the most beneficial things for me post-mastectomy has been a 10 week Pink Pilates program.  Have attended seven so far, with the rest to be completed in the coming weeks.
My ROM, strength, etc are good.  Hate that sticky, scar feeling though.
I think Pink Pilates has helped me with mood, etc.  Attending appointments has also meant that I'm less isolated.  Has also been great for posture.
Any expertly run program that helps with mobility, etc has got to be good.  I wish the program were longer or had periodic follow-up reviews afterwards.
I'm grateful I started the pilates as soon as the drain came out.

Good luck for making your program a permanent fixture.  I think the results are worth the investment.

Thanks so much Jaquta! I am so proud of you! Yes Pilates is a phenomenal program and I am so glad that it helped you emotionally, physically and spiritually. Exercise is a vast science we just need to know how to adjust when there is a condition present but as you know muscles, brain and cells love it!...thanks for your compliments and so grateful for your testimony!

You're welcome!  You might be able to answer this question.  In your experience or to your knowledge does exercising during chemo negatively impact on ones brain function or heart health?  If chemo affects rapidly dividing cells then wouldn't chemo affect the muscles, etc because they're regenerating.  ??
Chemo has affected my exercise tolerance level.  Two months post surgery I was running up to 60 minutes.  Yesterday I went for a 20 minute run and today I just flagged it and went for a 9+ km walk.  Just wasn't happening.  Is hard to know how hard to push yourself when your body is already going through major changes with blood cell counts, etc.

Follow-up programs and data would be really interested.

Back to the surgery and Pink Pilates stuff.  I was told that one woman following a mastectomy didn't exercise and ended up needing surgery for a frozen shoulder.  Exercises, despite being a chore sometimes, are pretty invaluable.

It's been 9 years since breast cancer, I had 7 lymph nodes removed and I am 63 years old.  I recently joined a gym;but am not confident with programs that trainers are giving me.  What do I need to know to do strength training without damaging my arm.  The cancer was on the left side.
