I ended up having to do daily advil for the whole treatment cycle (Aleve has never worked well for me, but everyone is different). It really helped. Fatigue is a know SE for the RT and stress won't make that any better.
Are there other members of the family who can help him with the whole mom issue? I know that might not be possible, but if there was anyway he could "call in sick" with regards to mom that would be a help. Does his mother know he's doing RT? If she does, she might be acting out of fear. Wild guesses on my part.
Daily walking is about
the best for the fatigue and will help with the other symptoms too. And help with the mom related stress,
I'll be in the shop.
