'Prehabilitation' before colon cancer surgery may aid recovery
from HealthDay News
Exercising, eating a healthy diet and learning relaxation techniques before colorectal cancer surgery appeared to speed a patient's recovery, a small study found. The study included 38 patients who took part in a "prehabilitation" program and 39 who only did normal rehabilitation after their surgery. The prehabilitation program lasted an average of about 24 days and included: 50 minutes of aerobic and resistance exercises at least three days a week; a personalized nutrition program and whey protein supplementation, and lessons in relaxation methods to help reduce anxiety.
