Hi, Kathy, throw a right royal fit in the docs waiting room. Just faint on the floor. You have seen enough movies, this is ridiculous. Cry, sob, pull out all the stops. Your body is telling you to take it easy and you can't afford to compromise your immune system. Hugs, Shirlann

So sorry you are having so much trouble. and I don't have any advise for you,except to take care of you, because no one else will.
I think if I were you and it were possable, I would find another Dr.
Will keep you in my prayers, GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU----FLO

Hi Kathy,
So sorry to hear that you're not feeling well and have to return to work. Shirlann's suggestion is worth a try. Do you have an understading employer? Maybe you can talk to them and take more time off. Hope you find a solution that will good for you.

Hugs from Carolyn

Hi Kathy, sorry you are still not feeling well. Shirlann has a good suggestion, tell your Doc you are NOT READY yet. It is your body and its telling you to rest. Maybe another Doc. might be the answer? I wish I could help you. I'd go with you to your doctor. My docs are so understanding. Its hard to believe yours don't seem to be . I hope you find an answer. God bless you.Love Emmi

Kathy, did you onco do up blood work to see if your anemic. I was also exhausted all the time after chemo and was put on procrit, it really helped. I hope this helps, take care and be good to yourself.
