During and for a while after my treatments I rode a stationary recumbent bike some at the Y, sort of like IntheShop mentioned, though his might be an actual road bike. (I also walked a lot -- 2 to 3 miles a day)
My RO tried to discourage me from riding a regular bike during my treatments. He didn't have studies or anything to back it up, but he said he had noticed over time that the few men he treated that did end up having rectal related SE's (bleeding, etc.), that a lot of them biked a lot.
Kent, this is exactly what i was thinking/concerned about
. Your doctors comment is enough to keep me off the bike (i dont have access to a recumbant bike). I just will have to find a way to get cardio in either walking or otherwise.
I am not a doctor, just another guy without a prostate
