Hi Ladies! I just finished my 4th and LAST round of T/C chemo 2 weeks ago. I have gotten over all side effects but one - fatigue. Before chemo, I was such a high energy person, and even exercised throughout my chemo treatments, except the day of. But after the 4th treatment, I'm very tired. Has anyone experienced this, and if so - how long does this last? My Oncologist said it could take weeks, but I spoke to another survivor who said it took her months to get her energy level back! I just started a no-animal eating plan from and after-cancer-care center, and they are monitoring my blood to see where I am deficient thanks to the chemo, I asked them about the fatigue, and they told me the same thing... it could take weeks to months. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I sleep 10 hours a night, and still need a nap around 2:00 in the afternoon. I miss my energy!
