    The fatigue is all gone finally. I've been back in the weight room for about 3 weeks now. I was so weak and muscle wasted from the treatment , but have recovered quickly. I think getting my strength and muscle back helped a lot, squats quickly took care of my tired legs. I Think another month I should be back to my pre treatment strength and size. I was really amazed at how much the treatment wrecks havoc on mus...

      That's great that you are hiking so much! Do you feel the same as before treatment now? Thanks for the thyroid tip, does it fail quickly or slowly?

        It seemed like I would throw up everyday when I had the tube. I would start coughing or sneezing and that was all that it took to trigger it. I've only gotten sick a few times since I've had it removed, usually in the morning trying to clear mucus.

          I'm doing so much better eating! I had the PEG tube removed 4 weeks ago because it irritated me so much, and I had made it 3 days without taking formula. Soon after they took it out my pain went way up eating and I was worried I pushed them to take it out to fast, so I just kept my food soft until I could manage the pain better.within the last few days I finally came off the pain medicine, and was able to eat the M...

            I have a 4 and 6 year old so it's been pretty tough laying around all the time and not being able to play with them. The only way I was able to be with them when they were playing was to lay on the couch and have them play video games while they sat on me! Hahaha, true! I had a light workout today and felt a lot better after, gathering the energy to do it was a huge effort though.

              I am 8 weeks out from 7 weeks of chemo/radiation and am doing pretty well except extreme fatigue. I lost about 20 pounds during treatment. My strength is way down, and I just want to lie down all the time. I've been walking about 2 miles a day, and am going to start reintroducing strength training. How common is this weakness/fatigue after radiation and how long did it last for you?

                I'm 8 weeks out from my treatment and got sick this morning, first time in several weeks.  No particular reason.  It was really bad about a month ago, but has gotten a lot better.
