Relief for fatigued mother?


Question from Swenwen: I am only 32 years old and can not keep up with my 16-month-old. I am active and eat a balanced diet. I received Cytoxan, Taxol, and Adriamycin. How long until this gets better?
Answers - Tish Knobf Healthy women with 16-month-olds are also tired. However, recognize that fatigue is a known side effect of treatment.
Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. Friends helped me by taking care of my 2-year-old when I was too fatigued to do it myself all day long.
