When Did Your Fatigue Set In?

When Did Your Fatigue Set In?

I have follicular lymphoma and last week got my fourth treatment of chemo and immuno therapy. So far my body copes reasonably well but, given that fatigue seems to be a really big topic in this forum, I was wondering when fatigue started to set in with you? Already during therapy or afterwards? I know it's different for everybody but just wanted to get an impression. Sorry if someone already asked this before - I just found this forum today.

Anne6,
Hi! And welcome. I had fatigue before I was diagnosed. I have/had DLBCL and had treatments of RCHOP chemo. I've been in remission for about 21 months now. I was very fatigued during treatments and I still get fatigued especially early in the evenings. And, if I am too busy running around for a day or two I feel it after the fact. Someone told me that it can take up to two yrs to feel back to normal. Although, she's 10 yrs out and said she still has issues. I unfortunately think I will never feel the same as previous to lymphoma. But I am so grateful to be alive. Kelly

Hi Welcome. I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma in 2019. The fatigue started in my 5th round of chemo. Rituaxin and bendamustine. Hang in there. I'm in remission as of July 2021.
