Mark,

When I saw the title of your post I immediately started humming that old song.  I remember being that tired too.  I seem to remember that my whole life was one big nap after another.  Just remember that sleep is healing--you need it, along with protein and calories and hydration.  Someday this will all be a memory.

All the best,

Susan

Hiya Mark,

Hang in there.  I promise there is light at the end of the tunnel.  Eat what you can, sleep when your body tells you.  Your present condition is temporary and you'll make it one day at a time.

Best of luck.

It sounds like you are plugging away and doing pretty well so far. I stayed tired for some months afterwards. I am over a year now from the last treatments and your post brought the memory back of how tired I actually was. Even though it was just over a year ago, it is starting to fade fast.

I finshed radiation 15 months ago and I remeber the days i was so fatigued that I could not get out of bed to go for treatment. what helped me the most with fatigue and pain was

marijuana administered via an inhaler. The good news is that is temporary and will go away within a month after you finish tretment.

Good Luck

Hey mark Hang in there buddy I just past the 3 mo mark from last treatment and fatigue and napping is thing of the past. There is a product called liquid hope, Google it, for the feeding tube that is pretty good stuff and I believe helped me heal quicker and keep weight on. I lost 3 lbs total thru it all, but keep trying to eat something everyday, scrambled eggs, oatmeal etc. your gonna make it, easy does it,,,
