Ask-the-Expert Conferences: Managing Fatigue


In this section you can read the answers given by experts on managing treatment side effects and understanding the fatigue that comes with cancer treatment. Find the answers to these, and other questions related to fatigue:

  • How would I know if this is normal cancer-related fatigue, or if I'm anemic? Answer.
  • Why am I so tired when I did not need chemo or radiation therapy, only a mastectomy? Is it from stress? Answer.
  • The side effects I've had since my treatment have left me so worn out. I do sometimes feel better if I make myself do a 10-minute walk. Does exercise help or is it my imagination that I feel a little better? Answer.
  • Is it normal to feel rested, then once the normal work routine is resumed, the fatigue hits again? Answer.
