I finished two weeks ago a 6 week radiation for squamous cell cancer lymp nodes in my neck. The radiation was a nightmare rendereing me unable to eat or even swallow correctly.I was in a great deal of pain requiring liqued narcotics.
Now the depressing part. Even though it's been two weeks post radiation I still feel this overwhelming feeling of exhaustion. I get up in the morning after a long nights sleep, make 2 cups of coffee and a protein shake, take a shower and the collaspe in my easy chair as if I had been working all day. Everyday I want to go to my volunteer job, but just can't imagine the 8 short block walk. It's getting very isolating and discouraging.
Is anyone else going through the same thing?
