I had 9 treatments of cytoxan over 7 months.I am now on a maintenance dose of 50 mg Prednisone every other day.I was wondering if anyone can tell me how long the fatigue etc from the chemo should last.I would like to go back to work.

it's hard to tell. this disease is a disease of the immunity system. so everyones immunity system is different. it depends on your age and how you respond to the medications.. it's also hard to say if or when you return to work.
