Okay, I've been thru the mastectomy, the reconstruction [latissimus dorsi w/ silicone implant] the chemo [Adrimyacin + Cytoxin x4 then Taxol x 12] and finished that in December. Now I'm on Aromasin. When does the fatigue go away? I wear out so easy and can't do what I used to. Is it too soon to expect it to be gone or does it continue for a while? redface

Good morning -- Yes, the fatigue does get better, but I can't say that you will every feel completely "normal". You have just finished a MAJOR assault on the disease and the body is still in shock. I've been doing this a long time (11 years) and fatigue is a part of life. You just get up and go and go and go.  Cancer changes a lot of things but it also makes you stronger.  Hang in there!

Jackie is an expert on going on and on. She is amazing!!! She is so right fatigue gets better but ...... The best you can do is rest when your body needs it and let it all heal! I9 like your foot note. It is so true. Hugs, MK
