Abstract:

A total number of 30 Haematology cancer subjects with 15 each in control and experimental group from Day Care Centre of Department of Haematology, N R S Medical College and Hospital, Kolkata was sampled by convenient sampling method for a period of 12 months. Exercise program along with relaxation techniques were provided to experimental group and no intervention was provided to control group. Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) and Physical Performance Test (PPT) were the two outcome measures used. Exercise program along with the relaxation techniques yielded significant results i.e., FSS<0.002 and PPT<0.002, which shows that this exercise program along with relaxation techniques helps in decrease the fatigue level and improvement in physical performance in cancer (Haematology) undergoing chemotherapy. The current study has shown that exercise program along with the relaxation technique decrease fatigue and improve physical performance in cancer patients which proves our hypothesis.
