Fatique and Chemo

I start my next week of chemo tommorow. 20 hours. Ugh. Not looking forward to the fatique. What do you guys do to help with the fatique, if anything? I don't want to spend the next week sleeping.

Re: Fatique and Chemo

I don't have an answer! Sleep seems the best when you can get it, but I still feel fatigued after sleep. One thing we need to remember is that this form of fatigue is simply not the same as the kind when we don't get enough rest. I am afraid it is a state of being while on chemo.

Re: Fatique and Chemo

I agree that sleep did not seem to make the fatigue any better. I added some iron and extra B vitamins. I don't know if it helped or not. I would also try to do some light yoga or walking and that did seem to help.

You can do this! Sending you some positive entry.

Re: Fatique and Chemo

My fatigues seems to = brain fog. I don't know about anybody else. I get BRAIN TIRED. When I am "ON" I am really on and feel great. I try to pace myself and not overdo things. Then the fatigue comes on suddenly and I am good for nothing but sleep at that point.

Well. I just ran across this article which seems interesting, but I really don't have the energy to stay up and read it right now. I know they are also selling something, but I am not affiliated with them or their product in any way. I just happened across it in my email a bit ago, so I am sharing.

I hope it is helpful for somebody.


Also don't forget to check out the hystersisters article on this subject.

Re: Fatique and Chemo

I should start chemo next week, so I can only offer my support at this point. I will ask my Onc what she recommends since I guess I will expect fatigue. I already have "senior moments" that have increased since my surgeries. Please keep us informed of everything! You are all in my thoughts and prayers!
