Interferon Treatment Quest?

Posts: 2
Joined: Apr 2005

I am 24 and was recently diagnosed with Melanoma skin cancer on my chest. After 2 surgeries, I am now going to start the Interferon treatment. I know the main sympton is fatigue, but I want to know to what extent. Will I be able to work, drive, etc. I just don't know what to expect. Can anyone give me some help?

My sister-in-law was diagnosed with stage 3 melanoma. Interferon is one of her options. They told her to expect flu like symptoms for about a week after she got the injections. How are you doing?
