Exercise Physiologist + Acupuncture

Hi all,

After my chemo I had severe and chronic pain. I was finding it difficult to walk, get up from my seat or the floor etc. I have recently started acupuncture and am working with an exercise physiologist to help improve my strength and stamina. It's only been a few weeks and I am already noticing a change for the better in my symptoms.

  • That's great Sirin.

    I'm going to aqua-aerobics 4 times a week and I am starting to feel great - it took more energy than I had at first but its been worth persevering with.

  • Hi Rachel and Sirin,

    I've been doing exercise physiology once a week for the past 3 weeks or so and I'm increasing that to twice a week from the 9th January due to being in hospital for three months and being weak.


    how do you manage aquarobics with a stoma?

  • I don't have a stoma Jolan, just tummy muscles that needed some serious work after the surgeries. Do you have a stoma care nurse?

  • I do have a stoma/colostomy bag after an op for an OVC tumour.  I don't do regular swimming but on a recent trip to Port Douglas we went on a snorkelling trip.  It doesn't have to be a problem depending on your stoma supplies.  Here is a useful link: https://healdove.com/misc/colostomy-patient_swimming-with-a-colostomy-bag

    Take care,
