7 notes to take care of your body after cancer treatment

After cancer treatment, patients are recommended to improve their health with an exercise regimen to restore physical condition and appropriate lifestyle.

Exercise moderately

Regular exercise is beneficial for mood and speeds up recovery after treatment.

Sometimes, you don’t feel like exercising because the side effects of treatment make your body tired.

Healthy eating

The American Cancer Society recommends that patients after cancer treatment eat at least 2.5 to 3 cups of vegetables and 1.5 to 2 cups of fruit every day.

A diverse diet of fruits and vegetables helps promote the recovery process for cancer patients after treatment.

Maintain a healthy weight

For patients who gain weight during cancer treatment, according to the American Cancer Society, you should lose weight slowly (no more than one kilogram a week) and talk to a nutritionist to design a fertility treatment plan.

Get enough sleep

Getting enough sleep is an important factor in the patient’s recovery process.

If you feel excessively sleepy during the day, talk to your doctor as you may be experiencing a sleep disorder or a side effect of treatment.

Keep your spirit at ease

Post-cancer treatment can cause changes in physical or relationships (emotional, co-worker relationships), which in turn, cause anxiety for the patient.

Stop smoking

Quitting smoking helps reduce the risk of cancer recurrence.

Limit drinking alcoholic beverages

Some types of wine have health benefits and drinking a glass a day helps reduce the risk of heart disease.
