The freight train of fatigue from breast cancer radiation has taken up residence in my body. Why do x-rays to a small area of my body cause so much exhaustion, you ask? Well, let me tell you…
Now that my chemo is DONE and my port-a-cath is OUT, it’s time to begin the Road to Radiation. Silver Lining: this is the LAST part of my treatment regimen. Yippeeee-do!
As I continue to move beyond the side effects of breast cancer chemo, I am able to see the light at the end of the long, long tunnel. (The light is still a long way off, but it is there. And that is a huge Silver Lining!). During this visualization, “Re” words keep popping into my mind, beginning with: Recovery.
After a long six months of breast cancer induced fatigue, feeling an inkling of energy in the past few days has been a Silver Lining. However, what I learned after a day of too much too fast, the faster I go now, the longer recovery will take.
