      YES, but I think it's an anemia issue and not being able to sleep well. My suggestion would be to get a complete blood workup done. I have to take iron and calcium supplements which help me to be low normal.
      I think too, it's mental fatigue. Even though we push through the day to day activities there is still a lot going on in the head.

      Hi Molly72, I hope your surgery went well. My mom gets tired all the time and I think it is an anemia issue plus she has to sleep sitting up because it is too painful to lie flat. I tell her all the time not to fight the fatigue and allow yourself to nap.

      I discovered naps and they help a lot. Perhaps the radiation will make me even more tired but I will rest when I can.

      Thanks for all your answers, but it is not anemia, it's not my heart, and it is not my lungs as tests have been made for all.
      I am having another surgery in a week for a GIST, making that the fourth surgery in 7 months. I think that perhaps it is mental & emotional fatigue & a little depression thrown in.
      I want all surgery done by the end of the year, so that I can start the new year cancer free. Let's hope 2012 will be a better year for all of us.
