    Radiation

    I was told I would get Fatigue, but id didn't hit me until the last 2 weeks - and then all I did was sleep for the next month, trying to do things was hard. On top of that I got a seroma which took anoth 4 to 6 weeks to heal.

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree

    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    I have never felt this tired, nor did I know how to deal with it, stay positive and be there for my husband. In one week we had 10 Dr. appts. between us!
