I was diagnosed with Stage 3b colon cancer in June 2009. I completed my chemo treatment January 2010, although half way through they removed the Oxaliplatin, due to an anaphylaxis reaction. Of course after treatment I was seriously fatigued, which I thought was common side affect that would eventually get better. Well, after no relief in site, I went to a sleep specialist and was diagnosed with idopathic hypersomnia. I have been known to sleep up to 18 hours a day and the only treatment that seems to help me is acupunture. I am thinking it had something to do with the chemo, but we are unsure. Has anyone else been diagnosed with idopathic hypersomnia after chemo treatment?
