Fatique progressively worse over chemo cycles?
on Monday. I started having bach and chest aches yesterday from
the neulasta which seemed a little late from the past experience.
It's not too bad, just 2-3 days of aches in the back that shoot to my
chest (sort of like having the flu)and this hasn't changed other than
it being maybe a little later after the shot this time.
However, I'm much more fatiqued after this last cycle. My oncologist did
say that the fatique could get cumulatively worse as I progress through
the cycles. I'm very fortunate as I've had very few/mild issues with
side effects so far and thank goodness, only 2 more cycles! I'm pretty
much able to take care of myself normally.
My regimen is pretty much go into the hospital for 4 nights/5 days of continuous
infusion, then a couple weeks off and if blood work is okay, etc, start
the next cycle. This time I've been more tired and for longer periods of time.
I did some shopping one day and had to stop and sit for a few minutes.
I cut the shopping short to go home.
1. Have many of you experienced increased fatique as you progressed through the chemo cycles?
2. Once you completed your chemotherapy, how long after did you start regaining your
I realize this varies by individual and other factors but I just wanted to get some
feedback. I have stage 2 NHL, found in the small intestine/messentery region.
Thanks for any feedback you can provide.
Wishing you well and hope you're having a good Labor Day weekend!
