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. For more information or
