I am just curious as to other suvivors stories, I had my tumor( grade 3 astrocytoma right frontal lobe) removed in 1993( 18 years old) and went thru 6 weeks of Radiation and a years worth of Chemo. I am 34 now and I have always felt run down. I have some good days where I can get a lot done, but some days I do not want to get out of bed. I have tried vitamins and supplements, caffine pills, my family doctor prescibed me adderall, which helped out, but its expensive and I do not have presciption drug coverage so really can not afford the medicine, so I stopped taking it. I seem to get fatigued easily and have shortness of breath. I have tried exercising which doesnt make a difference. I have had an e.k.g., x ray/ct scan of my lungs, and I am sure of other tests, just can not remember. I do not know if this is normal and this is how I am suppose to feel. I just feel like a hypochrondriac complaining to my doctor, but I am to the point that I have given up and just going to deal with it. Am I the only one or do any of you have any suggestions as to something that might help me out.
