      It has been a year since finishing chemo and I am still struggling with fatigue as far as sleeping and in my muscles. I have not been able to get back to the active life I had pre-cancer.

      I usually had a few down days after chemo, it was much worse when I was on three days in a row every three weeks. I'd get knocked down pretty bad for a few days and then start to get back up again. The biggest problem was that I would start feeling pretty good when my WBC's were at their lowest (so I would have to remind myself to be cautious because I was so prone ot infection). I would be itching to get out of the house and do stuff by the second week.

      When I was on just one day of chemo I recovered much faster...

      I have been diagnosed with stage 3 herr 2 breast cancer. My first chemo round have been rough. So I cant' imagine what round 2 will be like. I started feeling aweful on my 6 day and it is now day10. I can't eat, my stomach hurts all the time, and headache s. Not too bad body pain. I need relief, what can I do?

    I have stage 4 lung cancer that has spread thru out my body. How long does it take most of you to feel better after chemo? First time only 4 days but now it takes about 7 days to feel better. Every time i do chemo it is getting harder.
