Preoperative exercise medicine for prostate cancer.
Published August 27, 2018
Radical prostatectomy is often followed by short and long term side effects such as urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction. Exercise has been established to be safe and result in improved physical wellbeing for cancer patients. Recent research suggests that pre-surgical exercise offers strong potential to optimise physical function and minimise the side effects of surgery. The purpose of this research study is to examine whether exercise before and after prostatectomy can decrease treatment-related side effects such as urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction.
