fatigue was a big issue for me after the end of my chemo regimen. I am stage 4a, and had severe pleural effusion before debulking surgery - that was exhausting. Right before the end of chemo I got a bacterial blood infection from the PICC line, and the treatment I received for that IV antibiotics which made me sleep 16-18 hours a day. It took me a long time to get back into a normal schedule, and then I suffered from insomnia. With time, and learning to pace myself, taking up swimming regularly for exercise and continuing my regular meditation and mindfulness practice, I now feel almost myself again.
I wonder if anyone else has ideas or suggestions from their own experience for combating cancer-related fatigue?
