Glad to hear you're back on the bike! Thinking about things like chemo and radiation can wear you out. Getting back to normal activities really helps you feel like yourself again.

Riding your bike may keep you from getting radiation induced fatigue. The "patient navigator" at our local cancer awareness center advised me that exercising would help, and after 28 of 33 treatments, I believe that she's right. I've been doing at least 20 minutes of aerobic exercise 5-6 days a week, and I've had very little fatigue. Since your normal activity level is high, I have a feeling radiation will be no big deal for you.

Best wishes to you as you work your way through the treatment decisions!
