I'm not moving house right now, but it might something I'll be thinking about in the near future and, as it can be quite a physical and mental/emotional time, I was wondering if anyone has moved house since having surgery RT and has any observations. (I assume it will be a case of paying someone to do the hard work if not one of going a bit further and paying others to do just about everything.)

i have helped my friends move house a couple of times after surgery, no pc specific issues in my case. I have not had RT, only surgery, so no experience on that front

As far as healing physically, I think there is no danger from exertion, but each person is different in their reaction to radiation.
My dad (a PC survivor) used to remind me that the definition of a horsepower is work/time. He said he had learned to put out less horsepower and still get the job done.
