A breast cancer survivor and yoga expert at Grokker.com, says yoga not only helps heal her mind and body, but it aids in coping with fatigue and depression as well. “Yoga, meditation, and breathing practices allow women with breast cancer to explore their emotions, foster mindful empathy, and cope with fatigue and tightness,” she says. Before you start any form of exercise, be sure to consult with your doctor to get a sense of how much activity is good for you at your stage of recovery.

I'm so glad I saw another article that had those symptoms. The constant sharp pains were enough to send me to the doc, getting the scans finally tomorrow after some fubar with insurance. I might have ignored it as "just another pain like everywhere else" if I didn't know it could be breast cancer sign. Great article to have \U0001f44d
