I know everyone is different but how long does the fatigue last after your last chemo treatment? My last treatment of Carbo/Taxol was over five weeks ago and I seem to be getting more fatigued as the time goes on. I had six treatments at a lower does along with radiation with no problem at all, then I had the full dose three weeks later then another full dose three weeks after that. I felt like I had the flu for two days after the first full dose then I felt fine. After the second full dose I started feeling like I had the flu on the fourth day and can not seem to shake the fatigue. All I want to do is sleep. My doc wants to do two more full doses of carbo/Taxol in another week.
I did talk to my oncologist about it last week and all he said, it was from the chemo. I would think as time goes on you would feel better not worse.
Any advice or suggestions.
