Fatigue

My husband was diagnosed with PC Stage IV,  May 1, 2014.  He just finished his second round of chemo.  He is now complaining of constant fatigue.  I understand that the chemo and cancer can cause fatigue....I am just worried that something else could be going on?

I very much doubt it, but if you are worried have a chat with his doctor?!

My husband has stage 4 cancer, been recieving chemo for about 2 1/2 months now and is very tired. I notice with each treatment he gets more tired. I am sure it's the chemo

My husband is also in the middle of his second chemo regimen.  He is extremely fatigued.  The slightest thing exhausts him.  He gets frustrated and upset.

My husband (50) was diagnosed in February and started chemo in March- Gemzar and Abraxane.  Fatique is by far the worst side effect that has stayed with him all the time.  But he has had multiple side effects- swelling, nose bleeds, nausea and vomting, numbness in hands, etc etc.

He just had a 3 week break and had another chemo this past Wednesday.  Tonight is when the nausea will kick in.  But he is doing well and does not have to go back for another 3 weeks.

Hi Annie

I have had a break for 3 weeks and it makes such a difference, even though most of it is psychological :)  I really recommend anti-nausea pills,  I take them and have not once felt sick.
