Yes I know it takes a year to feel like yourself again. :) But I'm still wondering if the fatigue I am feeling is chemo related. It's been 5 months and it hasn't improved. I expected to get tired more easily and not have the same stamina. But I wake up tired, go to bed tired and never get any relief. My eyes want to close and all I want to do is sleep. I exercise regularly (I'm running 6 miles a week) and I'm eating healthy and neither helps with the fatigue. I mention it to the dr. but of course she just says it can take a year. Is anyone else experiencing this level of fatigue? If it's chemo related, I can be patient and wait for it to get better but if not I need to find the cause.
Also I've got joint aches in my knees, hips and feet. That is new and started after chemo. Sound familiar? Is it chemo related or menopause related? I'm 41 btw so it better not just be old age!
