does exercising help
Hi I'm new to this site and had a question. My mom who is 54 and was a waitress for 30 years was dx with stage 4 non small lung cancer in September. Before she was dx she would go to work and then go straight to bed complaining of fatigue and extreme pain in her back which we later found out was from the cancer. Now ever since she was diagnosed she wouldn't get out of bed. She stopped working . she'll get up to eat or get a drink and change her clothes but that is it. She barely willing to go to the doctors and i understand that part but it is also the only time she gets out of the house.When i try to get her to exercise a little she says that it better that she sleeps because it is helping heal by using all her energy to heal. Or that she is so tired all she wants to do is sleep.Is this normal? I'm getting frustrated with her about this and don't know how to to get her do even the most minor of exercises or even just to go for short car rides ? Will exercising even help the fatigue . Or is it better that i leave her alone and just let her sleep?
