You may remember my excited posts last month about finishing my four rounds of TC chemo. I am still thrilled about it. However, I am also very tired -- much more so than during chemo. I am trying to tell myself that it's probably residual anemia (I have labs scheduled for next week so I can find out for sure then); exhaustion from returning to work; getting used to a different social schedule (because I actually have a social life now); and perhaps my body rebooting itself as it works the chemo drugs out, finishes off having side effects, begins growing hair, starts eating the foods that were restricted during treatment, and otherwise resumes normal operations. There is that nagging voice in my head, however, telling me that I already have cancer again and all of this was for naught.
Folks, I need a sanity check. Anyone else experience fatigue as they resumed their lives post-chemo?
