Have you experienced fatigue as a result of treatment?

Please share your experience with treatment fatigue below. Do you have any tips for how you managed?

  1. Shirley shares her personal experience with fatigue from in this article: https://bladdercancer.net/living/fatigue-my-experience/. She talks about speaking with her doctor about healthy eating, exercise and Vitamin B12 as ways to manage. Also being patient and allowing time for self-care and rest. I hope this helps you if you're dealing with cancer fatigue. We welcome additional comments below!

    1. I believe sleep belongs a top priority for those who are trying to regain health. It is definitely required while going through treatment. I experienced fatigue during 6 weeks of intravesical chemotherapy while I continued to work. Since vitamins B, C, and D3 have been my main dietary supplements. Along with daily walks and other exercises, my energy is coming back. ~Jacqueline, Moderator, BladderCancer.net

      1. @Jacqueline Harmon - I have had more allergies issues the past couple years than ever before. I am sure it is due to a variety of things but seems to be more prevalent recently. I have used an over the counter product that seems to work. Hope you are able to find something that works for you too. Linda Urbanski ( moderator, Bladdercancer.net team member)

      2. since my cancer and surgery I am hyper sensitive to smells and my shampoo I used before makes my eyes sting - not to get in but just when I open the bottle. Weird. Laura, Moderator, BladderCancer.Net
