Fatigue and Breast Cancer

Posted on March 08, 2018

Fatigue in breast cancer is not simply feeling tired, but rather feeling physically exhausted and struggling to concentrate. Fatigue can be made worse by breast cancer treatments, and the effects may last long after treatment ends. Managing fatigue is best done alongside other women 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?

Here are some conversations about fatigue:

The first day of radiation and thirty-six more to go. Any tips and tricks?

Finished my last radiation yesterday! I am absolutely exhausted! When will I start feeling better?
