      I also struggle with these issues. Sore feet is neuropathy and it's worse in the morning and after a long ride in the car. I just take my time and keep my balance. Also struggle with constipation. You need to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. I have a chart of glasses that I color in with a blue marker. Fiber is not easy to keep up with, when you can't eat much.

      Sleep at night is disruptive due to anti nausea meds. They use prednisone. It will eventually get better. Now I can sleep all night, four months after the chemo treatments. Rest when you can. Indulge in naps!
