Fatigue and Breast Cancer

Posted on March 08, 2018

Fatigue is a common symptom of breast cancer. Women with breast cancer experience fatigue as a state of being tired—not sleepy, but physically exhausted which has an impact on daily life. Managing fatigue is best done alongside others who understand what you are going through.

On MyBCTeam, the social network and online support group for women facing breast cancer, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Fatigue is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about fatigue:

Could be my painful implants be the cause of feeling rundown and tired?

How do you exercise when you are in a constant state of fatigue?

Does anybody have any ideas on dealing with fatigue side effects from treatment?
