recovery after chemo
So, I am on my last round of chemo, my last Bleo injection is on Monday and i'm chopping at the bit to get back to normal and do stuff but I have no idea how quickly I will recover from the nine weeks of chemo?
Right now I really want to do stuff but find that I start getting tired pretty quickly. Next week I'm going back to work in the office but reduced hours so that I don't get too tired - but what should I expect? Am I going to feel fairly normal in a week or two? How long will tiredness be an issue? I know it will take longer to get over everything just trying to understand when i'll get back to 80%+ of feeling 'normal'.
Hope as ever that there's lots of folks who have recovered and can tell their story/experience!
(Thursday is my D-Day when I get the results of my latest scan/bloods etc and find out if I am onto surviellance)
