Hello, just a note to pass on my experience. I finished Proton treatmnets at UFPTI on Oct. 21st. I was walking 4 to 5 miles a day on the beach until about the 6th week of treatment. All of a sudden, I did not feel like doing any exercise at all. I was pretty tired having to take afternoon naps until about 6 weeks after treatment. Slowly I am almost over the fatigue now at 8 weeks post treatment and able to walk about 2 miles now. It seems like radiation side effect are different for everyone. I have talked to people who do not exercise and have never had one bit of fatigue. Hang in there, it will get better I am sure.
