Relaxation and Exercise In Lymphoma Patients (REIL)
This study will aim to compare the effects of an Exercise programme and a Relaxation Intervention in lymphoma patients in remission post-chemotherapy on quality of life, cardiovascular fitness, exercise tolerance, muscle strength, psychological status, social well-being and biological markers.
Subjects will be recruited from a specialist lymphoma clinic in South West London and randomly allocated to an exercise or a relaxation home programme. The study aims to determine the more effective intervention of the two in relation to the outcome measures.
The investigators anticipate that the interventions will result in less adverse events and improved quality of life and physical fitness, and subjects will require less medication, less counseling and cancer nurse specialist care, leading to leading to a reduction in hospital and surgery attendances.
