Chemo/radiotherapy - how long before you feel better?
Hi, can anyone who’s done the 5 week chemo radiation tell me how long it took them to feel ok again? I know they say up to 2 weeks and I’m only 5 days from finishing radiotherapy (8 days since giving up on the Capecitibine as I couldn’t stand the side effects) but does it really take that long?
I feel better when I wake up but as soon as I try to do anything, I’m wiped out. I try to get out for a walk with the dogs every day but only manage about a mile - most of which is spent wondering how I’ll get back to the car. I’m getting really painful legs from sitting/lying around so much.
Sorry for long post - actually missing going to hospital appointment everyday as no longer see people to talk to and compare experiences!
