Can you exercise with gastrointestinal tumors?A lot of exercise benefits!

Patients with gastrointestinal tumors are easily combined with digestive tract obstruction, bleeding, degradation, malnutrition, etc .; plus tumors and targeted therapy (radiotherapy, targeted therapy and surgery) will reduce the patient's body function, resistance, life Quality, treatment process, etc. have a negative impact. Therefore, many patients will feel that the body is not good, don't exercise! Does the exercise do you consume too much energy? What is more fatigue?

This idea is wrong!

Sports have a variety of benefits to tumor patients, but the movement here is moderate, short time movement. What is the benefit of a moderate exercise?

1. Movement can help increase intestinal stomach creeping

The patient's bed is too long, the peristalsis of the intestines will also decrease, and it is easy to cause constipation. When exercising, the organs of the body will increase with the activity of the intestines, and the harmful substances will be shortened through the intestinal time, and the chances of intestinal disease occur.

2, exercise can help inhibit the growth of cancer cells

The growth of cancer cells requires a certain anaerobic environment, and when aerobic movement, the oxygen environment in the human body is better, and it is not suitable for the growth of cancer cells to some extent, and the transfer of cancer cells can also be inhibited.

3, exercise can enhance immune function

Motion can accelerate the speed of bone marrow to generate white blood cells, thereby increasing the number of white blood cells, allowing cancer cells to swallow the cytophage, naturally increase the patient's own immune function.

4, exercise can improve the patient's emotions

After some patients got tumors, the mood will become very low, and it is not possible to increase the number of exercises. If you can increase the number of exercises, you can increase the confidence and hope of the patient, improve the patient's emotions, and have a certain help for treatment.

Therefore, there is a plan suitable for sports that will only be re-activated, thereby having a better state and immunity. For patients with gastrointestinal tumors, different treatment stages can bring a number of benefits!

Daily exercise, nutrition can not forget

Gastrointestinal tumors are easily merciled and malnutrition, affecting the treatment. Therefore, based on the normal treatment of primary disease, strengthen nutrition supplement, cooperate with moderate movements, increase skeletal muscle exercise, and an important role in improving the immunity of patients.

Sports should follow the steps step by step, from the principle of light to the long, slow to fast, and strength, and mainly in aerobic endurance movement.

When the weather is good, you can choose a comfortable place for a comfortable place, but when the epidemic situation occurs, you should avoid the places where people gather, change to home sports, and the intensity is mainly moderate, you can choose to step in it. Jogging, Tai Chi, gymnastics and other sports.

10-20 minutes each time, 1-3 times a day, with micro-sweating, does not cause discomfort, and should be moderately adjusted according to its own tolerance.

Preoperative exercise, shortening hospitalization time, reducing the incidence of complications

Surgical treatment plays an important role in gastrointestinal tumors, and preoperative physical fitness has proven to increase the number of complications and death risks after surgery. The tumor itself and its corresponding treatment have the ability to damage oxygen and utilize oxygen in the body, and preoperative motion training can reverse this damage, which can effectively reduce hospitalization time and reduce the incidence of complications.

Specific motion solutions can refer to the preoperative motion plan given by Japan Yamamoto, including grip training, walking and resistance training, each hand 20 grip training (10kg) every day, it is recommended to have more than 7,500 steps per day (about 1h). Therapy can release physiological pressure to make the organ tissue generate adaptive reactions, thereby increasing the ability to subjected to the pressure brought by surgery [1]. Postoperative exercise, promote early rehabilitation

Studies have shown that exercise can effectively promote intestinal peristalsis, reduce the incidence of gastricity, improve gastrointestinal function, and is important to patient rehabilitation.

(1) After 24 hours after surgery, the family and nurses can help them turn over, and carry back to promote the phlegm, once every 3 hours, 12 hours, launch the bed to take half of the bed, to help patients relax abdominal muscles Reduce the pain in the nurse; abdominal breathing and abdominal exercise can be carried out under the guidance of the nurse, once every 2 hours, 30 min each time.

(2) 2 days after surgery, strengthen the limbs, upper limbs fist, elbow joint flexion, raising arm and spinwear activities; lower extremity knee flexion, straight leg raise, hip outreach, sitting; physical fitness, Keep your double knee flexes and feet, hands on the bottom of the press to raise the hips to the bed> 10cm, stick to 5 seconds, then slow down, pay attention to the hips, pay attention to the amount of exercise should not be too large, ensure the safety of motion safety.

(3) 3 to 4 days after surgery, the bed is suitable, and the family can help the patient indoors and outdoor walks, gradually transition from their own activities, assist them to complete clothes, wash and other daily activities; and can carry abdominal massage On the other hand, massage the abdomen 300 times in a clockwise direction, and the method is gentle, until the abdomen is slightly hot.

Sports combined with nutrition supplementation time, recovery time, exhaust time, exhaust time, bowel movement time, low bed activity time and hospitalization time significantly shortened, nutrition management combines early sports care to effectively promote gastrointestinal motility, alleviating Digestive tract discomfort symptoms, so that patients will recover early [2].

Exercise during chemotherapy, improved fatigue, enhance sleep

Studies have shown that during chemotherapy, aerobic exercise training combined with Chinese medicine therapy has significantly improved the effect of patient chemotherapy, and the patient's sleeping treatment is enhanced, and it is relieved due to the fatigue of cancer. The specific exercise suggestions are as follows: Basic Movement Program: Slow 15 minutes, 2 times / day; simple healthy fitness exercises, bed stretching exercise, etc.

The aerobic movement preferably monitors the heart rate, maintains the heart rate within a motion heart rate of 120 to 140 times / minute, and the movement of the movement is selected from the selection of self-body, and the frequency of motion is controlled in 3 to 5 times / week [3].

The above is the exercise suggestion for the exercise of patients with gastrointestinal tumors. You must not misunderstand the "sports will accelerate cancer cell spread"! Appropriate exercise is only good for the body, it is moving together!
