Depends. The level of physical activity will depend on the general health and pulmonary function. If the person is otherwise healthy, there is no reason to curtail activity.
Yes. If a patient has had surgery to remove part of their lung to treat lung cancer, often they can return to competitive sports. Pulmonary endurance however may be less than before the surgery. Minimally invasive surgery has hastened return to work and other activities of daily living.
Yes. They would certainly be at a disadvantage since treatment might include removing part of the lung, radiation damage to the lung, and/or side effects of chemotherapy.
Yes, absolutely. Lung cancer patient can still jog or run. Yes, absolutely. Just use your common sense. If you feel well, not feeling tired- absoultely you can jog or run. You need to listen to your body. Get some rest if you must. Dont exert yourself too much. I always encourage everybody to keep active as much as possible.
Depends. The level of physical activity of any person depends on the functions of heart, lungs, muscles and nerves. As long as those are intact an early, small lung cancer by itself would not limit activity.
Yes. To as much as your body feels able.
It depends on the de. It means there is less than normal oxygen level in the blood. If the lungs are diseased, oxygen transfer from the breathed air to the blood is impaired. Normally o2 saturation is between 95% to 100%. Anything lower than 90% saturation requires oxygen supplementation.
Several. Pneumonia and shunting. Fluid in chest. Air leak and pneumo. Diffuse metastasis. Frequently also superimposed on emphysema from smoking.
Can you tell me which are the particles that a lung cancer patient emmit when he/she coughs or exhale?
Mucous and blood. You can have pieces of a lung cancer coughed up if it involves the airway, but usually it is mucous and blood. Even if tumor is present, you cannot pass cancer to someone else.
No. There is no evidence that coffee is bad for lung cancer patients. However, please bear in mind that coffee is a natural diuretic (make people urinate more often). If you have advanced disease and side effects from treatments, drinking a lot of coffee may lead to frequent urination and loss of water and dehyration and it may worsen tiredness, fatigue and poor energy. It may also affect your sleep.
No. Should not interfere with therapy.
What kind of food is good for high protein for small cell cancer patient taking kemo has small cell lung cancer just diagonsed smokes?
Beans. I suggest non animal source of protein like beans. Check out Gerson therapy.
Eat. The important point is that you eat. The type of food is not material. If mcdonalds is what you want, eat. You do need to stop smoking.
