I had the last treatment for my SLL (Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma) on December 14th and here I am 2 weeks later sooo tired all of the time I can barely function. I was being treated with Bendamustine and Rituxan and will continue with a maintenance dose of rituxan every other month for 2 years. One dose every other month. I am wondering if everything is just wiped out to the point where my body just has absolutely no energy anymore and just needs to rest? I hate feeling so guilty for getting up every day for the last week and just sitting in my chair at the computer, only doing enough to get by every day. It gets so depressing. My husband is on vacation and I know he would like to get our and do things and of course that adds to my feelings of guilt. I am so appreciative on the other hand to have had such success with the treatment (even though I would know if I managed to achieve remission status until next month) but I was hardly ever sick, I never threw up but did have some stomach discomfort, my hair remains intact and my lymph nodes are GONE!!! They were gone after the first treatment! It was like a miracle. So to make a long question short.. is this extreme exhaustion normal? My first post here so fogive the small font size.. I just noticed you can make it bigger lol Thanks for the advice or any answers you might have. Hope you all have a safe, happy and healthy new year!
