An extra shot of Sandostatin before nonstressful exercise is unnecessary but should be taken before known stress of either physical (surgery, dental work) or emotional type (IRS audit, unpleasant court appearance, funeral, etc.).
Massage is okay for carcinoid patients as long as the massage is not done over the tumor ( i.e. the liver area or the abdomen if that is where the tumor/s are). Also physical activity of the nonviolent type such as walking, swimming and exercising (not heavy weight lifting or contact sports) are good for noids.
Mild exercise short of being stressful is desirable and not harmful.
