I'm a Breast Cancer Fighter diagnosed on January 2021, had Lumpectomy on February 23rd, 2021. Currently taking Hormone Therapy pills. Stage 1, HER +, 34 session's of radiation. Why I'm so drained and tired all the time? Anyone going through this same symptom or any advice for more energy?

      I have walked in your shoes and I totally understand how you feel right now. It's like a constant battle just to stay awake some days, right?sometimes feeling like a beat up sheet of paper in left to soak in the rain. I went through a similar experience during my radiation and hormone therapy sessions. One thing that helped me was trying to listen to my body and not push myself too hard.I took significant rest when I had to and I allowed my body to regain energy. I also recommend keeping a journal, I found that keeping a journal will help you track energy levels and patterns that may intensify fatigue. I hope this helps! Sending you big hugs!

      You have really done well showing soo much strength through to this point, you’re a fighter! I must say that feeling of getting drained and tired is unfortunately quite common, especially with the intensity of treatments you've been through. I remember feeling like this sometimes,I couldn't even gather the energy to get out of bed some days. One thing that helped me cope with the fatigue was adding up gentle exercises into my daily routine. I did some small walks and yoga sessions which I felt greatly helped.. You might see this to be contradictory when you're already so tired, but sometimes just getting your body moving can help boost your energy levels, even if it's just a little bit. Another thing is, make sure you stay hydrated always and you eat well to nourish and boost your energy levels.You’ll be fine , just take great care of your self and know that you are not alone in this!

      Finished Chemo in December. Stage 1 breast cancer. Bilateral Mastectomy. I am exhausted all the time. On Tamoxifen. I don't know if it's the meds or just from everything I've gone through. Listen to your body and rest! Stay hydrated.
