RE: [MOL] Cancer Fatigue: A New Website



Title: RE: [MOL] Cancer Fatigue: A New Website

Dear Liz:  No -- one CANNOT lose that much energy in a year!  I have residual fatigue, too, as well as some short term memory loss.  I guess we'll just have to deal with it, won't we?  I refuse to admit it's my age!  LOL  Love, Kathy

Thanks for the site. My memories of treatment certainly involved fatigue.
Sometimes I wonder if I still have residual effects. I know I certainly
don't have the energy level I had before cancer treatment. Of course I am
almost a year older. Can one lose that much energy in a year?
Liz
