Hi! Fatigue is so frustrating! I have/,had DLBCL and had treatments of RCHOP chemo. I've been in remission for about a year now but still get tired in the early evenings. I combat it by walking. I walk daily and I think it helps me physically, but also emotionally. Kelly
It can be so many things. For me, getting the GI issues under control and healing from surgery were key to recovery - that can take time. You have to be able to eat and drink. It took my assorted Drs months to test for pancreatic insufficiency (I guess everyone thought it is the other Dr's job - but they don't really communicate with each other.) I only had a moderate case - but boy howdy, I can't even imagine what a more serious case would have felt like. Medication helped so much.
I have also made a huge effort to really eat healthy and drink lots of water. Cut out soda, most dairy and added sugar. I still fall back on carbs too much because it is easier on the upset innards. I have cut out so many of my previous favorites - in the name of feeling better. Back to the basics - healthy whole foods and actually cooking - not just throwing some processed prepacked, Lord only knows what's in there package in the microwave. It was a happy day when I could tolerate veggies and salads again. It does make a big difference. Have not even done any chemo (knock on wood) so I can't imagine what that would add to the mix. CA and it's treatment can be really hard on your body. It does need a lot of rest and grace. I hope that you find things that work for you.
Thanks Kelly. I’ve been at this for 6+ years now ( 3rd time around) and am now walking 2 miles just about every morning. It helps. Thanks so much. Blair
