What did you do to heal your body after chemotherapy?

So I just went through 9 months of chemotherapy. My last cycle was a month ago. I still have trouble sleeping. Great trouble with concentration levels and I am still lethargic. I know I should try to exercise but getting the energy to do it is tough.

What helped you bounce back after chemo treatments, I'd love some suggestions that worked for you.

Well now, I'd hesitate to say I "bounced back" myself, but I have outlasted three speculated expiration dates since April 2017.

I'm level, I'm even, I'm on a steady keel, is about as far as I can say.

Anyway, what did I msyelf do to "bounce back," or sort of "bounce back"?

Gratitude lightens the burden; gratitude to God, gratitude to other people and who they are to, and what they do for, one.

Putting all of one's affairs in order so that when one kicks the bucket, it takes one's survivors only five or ten minutes to sort things out.  Giving away all property and items of value one's not likely to need any more; material things can be a physical burden, breaking one's back, as well as an emotional burden.

Flushing out all resentments and spite directed against decent and civilized people.

^^^please notice the condition stated above; one has to be selective.

Endeavoring at all times to be full of cheer and goodwill to decent and civilized people.

^^^please notice the condition stated above; one has to be selective.

So as to not give them any chance to ask how one's doing, upon the approach of other people, immediately pepper them with questions and queries so they have no opportunity to ask their own; make decent and civilized people feel more important and more interesting than oneself, something usually true anyway.

^^^please notice the condition stated above; one has to be selective.

Dairy products, dairy products, dairy products.

Minimal prescription drugs, always the smallest dosage that is effective, possible.

Live alone, so no one sees when there's a problem, and one's free to deal with it in one's own way.

Well, those are my suggestions, but I doubt the primitive's going to pay them any attention.

Heavy consumption of whiskey should do the trick.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.

"Bounce back" is probably a poor choice of wording. After 9 months of chemo it's reasonable that recovery would take similar time, plus effort. Getting on a very regular routine wrt diet and sleep will help. Getting outdoors will help. Exercise is necessary, but building back up to whatever was normal will take months, possibly longer than the course of chemo. And mental is as important as physical, especially starting out.

I'm not speaking from personal experience, but I have running friends who have been through chemo and worked their way back. The two I have in mind at present have worked their way back to doing trail (including hills) 5Ks and 10Ks. It just wasn't a matter of "bouncing back" in a couple of months.

I'm surprised any DUmmie would live in a state without legal marijuana.  Supposed to do wonders for chemo side effects.
Help keep America beautiful...deface a liberal.

The Democrat and Republican parties are simply the left and right wings of the same bird of prey.

The road to freedom is paved with dead liberals.

How is that any different than the normal state of liberals?
