I came across this article, Walking Boosts Outcomes for Prostate Cancer Survivors, on the Prostate Cancer Foundation website a few weeks ago, and it struck a chord with me.
When I began my weight loss regimen back in December, I made a concerted effort to increase my physical activity, mainly in the form of walking. I’m not close to the level of activity that is talked about in this article, but it has helped with losing weight and with mitigating some of the minor side effects I had been experiencing post-surgery.
I know it’s only anecdotal observation on my part, but I feel that the number of stress incontinence episodes are down and, when I do have them, they’re not as significant as they once were. I’d like to say, too, that it’s improved my erectile dysfunction, but, if I’m being honest, I’m not so sure that it has. If it has, it’s only been slightly. At least things aren’t getting worse.
