Hi Guys, I'm 12months over chemo, full mastectomy and taxmoxifen, which I hate! sore joints, tired. I feel l ike I'm an old woman even to turn at night I need my partners help. However, I started Zumba classes 4 month ago, and go 4-5 times a week. I do it at my own pace (lots of breaks) However I have found remarkable changes to my body. I have been on holiday for the past 2 weeks and have had no zumba, I know feel like that old woman I previously was (I'm 45) I never did excersize before, so this has REALLY helped. I spoke to a doctor pal of mine while I was hear (in spain) and she told me that new research PROVES that excersize is the number one 'drug' you can take after having Cancer with all its treatments to help prevent it again! Ladies I so would encourage you ALL after treatment has settled to join regular sport classes.
