I finished radiation last Friday and I'm more tired and sore now than I was during treatment. Is this normal?

I was told radiation continues to "work" for up to six week post treatment.  I thought I would start perking up when radiation ended but it totally kicked me in the butt!  I know everyone is different, but I don't know one person who hasn't experienced fatigue. 

I admit to being tired of being in treatment and this type of side effect but I couldn't do anything but give in to it and sleep.  It takes time, but you will come back.  Your body is healing and go with the way you feel.
