My mum has terrible fatigue to the point that she couldn’t move out of bed this morning. She eventually got up and has taken it very slow and easy all day, but she says it feels like all life has been sucked out of her body.
She’s due to start second-line treatment a week tomorrow after the chemo/immunotherapy did not help. The cancer is still contained in the chest, but I believe it’s more extensive there now.
Mum and dad say that the fatigue is caused by her recent radiotherapy sessions. She had 5 sessions to the main tumour from Mon - Fri. This finished just over a week ago. The fatigue kicked in on the Monday following her last treatment. My worry is that it’s not the radiotherapy, but the cancer causing her to feel so fatigued. Is it possible to experience fatigue as bad as this from the radiotherapy?
