After having six cycles of taxol and carboplatin ending almost 8 mos. ago ,am still experiencing fatigue. Any suggestions or feedback from others about this?

    HI , I also had taxol , carblplatin,. and vp-16. I was told by my doctor to take b-complex vitamins for nueopathy. I started to take vitamins which my doctor doesn't believe in an have not had much problems. I don't know if they were the cure for fatigue but I don't have this problem. Mike

    Just a thought here. I'm famiiar with Emphysema which makes you very tired. These chemicals are said to cause anemia which takes a while to recover from long after the chemo stops working. That can make you get fatigued very easily until the blood count comes back up.
