5 hours aerobic exercise per week

On the Endometriosis Care Centre of Australia website I read that after surgical removal of endometriosis growths, 5 hours of aerobic exercise per week will reduce the risk of recurrent growths by 50%. I guess I have my exercise regime cut out for me!

It is also important for me to do a lot of weight bearing exercises, as 3 months on Zolodex leaves patients with reduced bone density in their spines, raising the risk of osteoporosis quite a lot. Not to mention, it's also in my family and I'm eating no dairy, and have a very low calcium intake (need to fix that).
