Question:
I have cancer and recently completed my chemotherapy treatments. I’m so tired that it seems I can’t get anything done. What can I do to get more energy to do the things I enjoy?

Answer: Cancer related fatigue is a common occurrence following treatment and can significantly affect one’s tolerance to perform normal daily activities. This type of fatigue responds well to resting appropriately, avoiding unnecessary chores, pacing activities, getting optimal sleep and nutrition, decreasing stress, managing pain, and even physical activity/exercise.
