I was diagnosed with cancer a year ago. I have had the chemo treatments, radiation, and surgery. The chemo treatments will continue as a preventative. The doctors warn me to be careful exercising due to dangers of lymph-edema, but they do not have a brochure of an approved exercise regimen; not even a list of guidelines. All they know is run the tests and prescribe the drugs. I am grateful to them since I am still alive; however, I wish more doctors took a broader view of our health.
I am not concerned about my weight. I want to get my stamina back. Prior to cancer, I had used the Spark People videos listed below. Would you consider these videos safe for cancer patients?

Many of the YMCA's in the US have a Live Strong program for cancer survivors. We live too far from any YMCA facility and the YMCA fees are too high for my budget, but it does look like a good program. http://www.ymcahouston.org/livestrong-at-t
