Struggling with fatigue
I wonder if I could ask if anyone has struggled with fatigue and low mood and how you have coped/managed these feelings. I had my surgery just over 4 months ago (LAR) and the chemo since has been a bit hit and miss due to severe side effects. I had to stop taking the Capecitabine tablets just over a week ago and I've only managed one infusion of oxaliplatin. It's looking like I'll be relying on surveillance going forward because chemo just wipes me out. The chemo was for mop up purposes/belt & braces.
Last week was horrendous as I literally couldn't get out of bed and I felt so low. I seem to ache all over if I do anything physical. This week I'm trying my hardest to push myself but it's feels like I'm climbing a mountain and I have no enthusiasm or interest in anything. I'm wondering if there's a tonic I could take and should I speak to my GP?
Anyone else felt this way at all?
Thanks for reading and sending you all my best wishes.
