I was diagnosed for second time- had breast cancer DCIS in 2006 w/lumpectomy & radiation. Then in 2015 (1-1/2 years into retirement), I was diagnosed w/breast cancer in other breast. Since I have a positive genetic PALB1&2 & am triple negative, I had a bilateral mastectomy in July. Had expanders at time of surgery. Implants in October 2015. Finished chemo end of January 2016. Had infection in one implant so it was removed in July. Had other implant removed in August.
I am experiencing a lot of fatigue even though chemo is just about a year ago. I can't seem to get up early and take naps during the day. I do go to the gym--I try at least once a week. I got a trainer so that motivates me. I take vitamins.
I do some outdoor activities, walks, hikes, but occassionally
I've also gained weight, and I know the winter can be more inactivity. But I feel fatigue every day.
I can't get to a 9:15 spin class at the gym, or even get myself to go on the bicycle or elliptical ,and am frustrated with myself.
