My mom was diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer back in January this year. She has had 6 sessions of chemotherapy in total (Carboplatin). She had chemo every 3 weeks and surprisingly she coped very well with the treatment. She finished her treatment at the beginning of July and has been quite well apart from tiredness. She is 79.
In August her youngest brother passed away suddenly and I am not sure whether the shock of losing her brother has had an impact on her health and caused her to be unwell or whether the symptoms she is experiencing are the after effects of the chemo. She is extremely tired, forgetful, feels dizzy and has been losing her balance, she has fallen over a couple of times. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms following Chemotherapy or should I be concerned?
I am really worried!!!
