I have prostrate cancer and am on Prostrap (currently on second three monthly injection), awaiting radiotherapy (well, that was what I was told and I have my 'big' consultation later this month).
I'm looking for advice about finding a local personal trainer who understands this condition and who can help. Any ideas on how to get in touch with the right person? I'd want to be meeting and doing something at least once a week if not more (budget and health/treament permitting). I know I can exercise while taking hormone therapy but not sure what the advice is during radiotherapy. I'm based in Wimbledon, South West London.
I am not expecting someone to do something for me - that I have to do myself! But I would like the expert guidance of a trained person when it comes to exercise and I don't know where to start - and I am sure that just anyone from Yellow Pages won't do (even at the best of times)!
Before diagnosis in early March, I was active and part of rambling groups walking reasonable distances twice and sometimes three times a week. But since...because of lockdown/shielding and the side effects of the hormone therapy I don't get out much - and that I do not like. I'm 66 and in reasonable health otherwise, could do with losing some weight (and have gained some, of course, being at home).
Thanks in advance!
