I am now eighteen months post op (Transachial esophagectomy) along with 3 months pre-op chemo and two months post op chemo.
I get so tired every evening around 17:00, which lasts till 21:00 then I feel great. Sometimes I feel too great, then I can't then get to sleep when I go to bed.
Everything else is good and my recovery is on plan. I eat well and drink normally. I am back at work and managing this fine. No matter what I try to do to offset the tiredness? Every night it is there again. It is a pretty anti-social thing. If I fight it, I look like I have been asleep for a week and am just no fun. If I give in I am out like a light. I realise that this is small issue and not something that I a complaining about. I just wondered if it is the norm?
Has anybody found a way around it? Does it go away with time?
I am 57 and otherwise healthy, with regular daily walks with my two dogs.
