I am a new member and was delighted to find this discussion group. I have read all of your messages and have taken encouragement from them as well as enlightenment. I was diagnosed in January 2002 and I am just four weeks out of treatment for stage 2 anal cancer. I too had the terrible burns from the radiation and was sick from the chemo. I healed very quickly from the burns but I suffer from fatigue now. I have started back to work part time and was doing very well until this week when I began feeling weak and tired again. I guess my question is how long can I expect the fatigue to continue. I am a 51 year old male who has enjoyed relatively good health before this. I am so tired of being so tired. I want to feel normal again. I welcome any comments you may have to offer.
