Nathalie Levasseur, MD, from University of Ottawa, discusses encouraging patients with breast cancer to exercise.

Fatigue during treatment is a reality and that can affect a person’s motivation for exercise. For postmenopausal women, there are additional physiological changes. Levasseur suggests patients start small with exercise, and then increase activity gradually. This is a difficult area for oncology practitioners as well, because of a lack of evidence to guide them.
