    Have surgery on June 26th. Arms and legs still so very fatigued. Have energy but when I try to move my arms and legs they are so heavy.

    Has anyone had the fatigue from surgery last this long. My arms and legs feel like they have 10 lbs weights on them. I start radiation in 1 week and would like to build up a little strenght before I start. Is there anything I can do now or do I just deal with it and know that the radiation will just make me more tired.

      Have you seen a neurologist about the heaviness in your limbs?
