Soorya,

I'd talk to your oncologist, but I think any physical activity that you feel comfortable doing will help you.  Walking is always a good exercise and you can do at your own pace.  Yoga too.

I enjoyed short walks during chemo with the approval of my oncologist. On days I felt like walking around the block I asked my husband or one of our children to join me in case I got too weak and needed someone to get the car and drive me home - that did happen a few times but I enjoyed the fresh air and exercise.
Best wishes
Tamara
