    Hi ciccioma, as you may know I too have stage iv colon cancer. My chemo started in late Feb. of 2011. Fatigue took a hold right away and still is with me. After awhile it just becomes something I've learned to live with. It was suggested to me to stay active and I have and this seems to help with the fatigue. Sometimes I have to force myself to do stuff and in the long run I feel better afterwards. Diet has also played a big role in helping with the fatigue, make sure to eat right.
    I read your profile and the bit about 5 years I consider nonsense! Emotional health I believe play an important part in our battle as well. We lived one day at a time before cancer and we still do.

      Just needed to add my 2 cents about fatigue...I learned to do what I can while I can. Mornings are my best time of the day, by late afternoon, I am done. I found that if I push my limits, I pay the new day.

      As for the 5 years, Nonsense is my vote too!

      Chemo affects each of us differently. Follow you instincts, take it easy, eat right!

    Hi hesseh and sorry it's took me so long to respond to your question of about 3 months ago. Yes we are sure the neuropathy was induced by the oxi. We have yet to try anything about treating the neuropathy as of yet because of the hope it will go away in a certain time,6 months, but that time limit is about to expire, so next time I;m at treatment will discuss what we may to to treat the neuropaty.
