Recovering from High Grade MyxoFirbo Sarcoma in my shoulder, question about exhaustion

Hi, I had a lemon sized (high grade) myxofibro sarcoma removed from my right shoulder last April, with a wide excision. I had 6 weeks of radiation afterwards. Now, I am having 3 month checks of my lungs and arms.
My radiation ended the first week of July, and I had severe burns under my arm where the lymph nodes had been removed.
Now, here at the end of September, I am feeling totally exhausted. I am a dental hygienist, and have gone back to work for 4 days a week. ( did this in August)
Has anyone else experienced this terrible exhaustion several months after radiation treatments?
Hugs and thanks,
DaisysMom
