Thanks for the good fitness tips

Post by TimG » Sun Jun 04, 2006 6:46 pm

I've been exercising for about an hour a day on most days of the week for nearly a decade. I use a combination of aerobics ( including interval training), stretching and free weights. I eat mostly healthy food. I still can't believe how much all of this has contributed to my overall good physical health.

A couple of months ago, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I have increased my training to be in the best possible shape for surgery this month. I feel that I am ready for the rigors of my upcoming operation and recovery. I hope to be back exercising again about six weeks after surgery

I want to thank everyone here for the helpful information that you post. Since I began reading here off and on several years ago, I have gained more knowledge about exercise.

Hi Tim G. I'm 56, and starting to show an enlargining prostate myself (checked-no C at this time), but my father did have it. Got it diagnosed, and they did something interesting with him. Rather than the reular surgery and chemo, they simply implanted these radiated type of pellets into the area. He's been clean for about 4 years now (he's 80 now), and it didn't take much out of him, so there is all kinds of good hope out there.

Yes, actually I happen to know about some of the new techniques being developed and the localized techniques are under a lot of research right now because of their improved effectivesness.

For masses localized to specific regions(unlike those in the lymphnodes and larger organs) these really are the newest and best treatments available; they are ever improving so stay informed on the matter.
