Fatigue verses Tiredness

I had a helpful discussion with a MacMillan nurse this week who explained the difference between fatigue and tiredness.  The former is a result of the chemo and keeping moving and exercising helps. This makes you tired when you go to bed.  I hadn't appreciated the difference. So I keep doing a bit each day and choosing not to rest and do nothing.

Just wondering how everyone is getting on.  I have completed my 4/4 cycles of EC and start 12 weekly treatments of Paclitaxel. I didn't expect such a challenging journey.  How naïve can you be!!!!

The hot weather brings its own challenges as well.

    That's helpful to know.

    I finished my treatment for triple negative breast cancer last October.  I had chemo first and then Surgery after which I had 15 sessions of radiotherapy.  I am now cancer free.

    Wishing you the best of luck with the next phrase of your treatment.

    Best wishes
