Hi all: I was diagnosed with SLL about 8 months ago (trisomy 12). The fatigue has been getting progressively worse, to the point last week where my oncologist really wants me to consider chemo. My blood counts aren't too bad, but my lymph nodes are huge everywhere. And the fatigue is overwhelming. Anyhow, by last Thursday I was beginning to agree, thinking chemo would be better than how bad i felt. But suddenly and without any explanation, I woke up Monday morning and felt completely "normal" again. Like my old self!
Today is the third day and I still feel great! I can't begin to describe what a drastic change this is. I think I can actually exercise, or paint the laundry room, or clean out some closets. All those things I want to do but can't anymore. But I'm also terrified this feeling will go away as fast as it got here. I have no idea what caused this. I haven't done anything different that would make any change.
My questions for you: Has anyone ever experienced this before? If so, how long will this last? I know every patient is different, but I'm really hoping others have experienced this and it's long term.
