Fighting Bladder Cancer with Exercise
As with any cancer, those who suffer from bladder cancer often feel fatigued and unable to move around during the day. The medications they take and treatments they must undergo actually damage their bodies and can make them feel a lot worse before they start feeling better. However, studies have shown that as difficult and exhausting as it may be to exercise while being treated for bladder cancer, the benefits it provides are tremendous.
