But I do have a friend who is also a survivor that told me her doctor gave her B12 during her treatment and she never got tired. I did talk to my doc about taking a B complex, and have been doing that to help with my energy level. I feel like my energy is pretty good most of the time, but I do still get fatigued for no particular reason some days. My last rads treatment was 4-28.

Why are you just assuming your Vitamin B12 level is in the deficient range? A simple blood test will let you know if your levels are low and supplementation is even needed. It is possible that over-the-counter B12 pills are all that is necessary. If your B12 level is within the normal range, then additional B12 will be of no use.
