Don -

Even just walking is said to help with fatigue. Its been super hot and humid here lately, so I've been going to stores and walking in air conditioning. The big stores don't seem to mind at all.


I learned from reading post-treatment posts here how important it is to keep up with the exercises. I think if I hadn't, I wouldn't fully understand the damage that is being done to my body. Like you, I'm only 45 and hope to have some more years ahead of me - I'd like for them to be good ones!
