Tired Question

I have a question about tiredness. I see a lot of people do not have the energy they used to have before chemo. I was there as well. Now it seems its my eyes that feel tired all the time. My energy is not 100% by any means,but I still can go 16-17 hours a day without really having to stop and rest. Its not as easy as it used to be,but I can still manage it. My question is this. Does anyone else have the tired eyes and maybe thinking it is the body that is tired. I guess I am asking that right.I have read where some still have to have a nap during the day several months after chemo. Some,like myself have been out of treatment for several months and still feel the effects.
At first I thought it was my body that was tired,but when I'd go in and lay down and close my eyes I felt like I wasn't tired. Having my eyes closed made me realize it was my eyes and not my body that was tired. john

    Tired question.
    Hi John,
    My eyes don't bother me at all, but the fatigue is hanging on. I have fairly good energy for about 6 to 8 hours after getting up in the morning, but then I slowly start to fade out by late afternoon. Usually by the time diner and dishes get done(6:00)I'm done for the night. I can sit and read or watch television, but as far as getting out or doing anything physical, I'm just not up to it. I talked to my onc last Monday about this and he said everyone varies with getting their energy back. I sure hope you can get something figured out with your tired eyes.
