Hi susanmck, Before treatment I was more tense than anything else due to the diagnosis. I had 5 weekly chemos and 25 daily external radiation at the same time. after the 5 weeks were up my blood counts got very low so and I became very fatigued, anemic, and my WBC and Platelets we horrible. I ended up stuck in my home for 3 weeks and had to have a blood transfusion. Then came brachytherapy (internal radiation). I finished up at the end of May. After I finished treatment I was very fatigued and was still dealing with radiation side effects but after about 6 weeks things started to improve. I am doing much better now. I just started excercising again. I still have bouts of fatigue when I do too much but things are getting better! Hope this helps.
