    I remember feeling fatigued after diagnosis because of the emotional stress. After that each treatment sort of ads to the fatigue so keep active!

    I agree with Kathy. Even though you haven't began your treatment...the emotional toll of being diagnosed with breast cancer is exausting. I was very tired and stressed before I started treatment. It gets easier. I finished my chemo last month, and getting ready for my BMX on the 24th of this month. Hugs and prayers, Diana

    The way people react to their treatments is different for e eryone. I felt tired near the end of radiation but I worked a full day and also went to the gym. I do think keeping active helped my stamina and helped me come through the treatment without much difficulty. Good luck

    I felt tired too just like the person above me and she is right, you need to stay active but rest when you need to. Your body is trying to heal. Be very good to yourself during this time and get rid of negative people.

    I am in-between biopsy & surgery and am just wanting to sleep all the time. I run my own business so I can take a nap at lunch,but I had a hard time keeping my eyes open at the board meeting I was at tonight. My son and I joke around about it. I'll say I'm so tired and he'll say Hey you might have BC I hear that makes you tired. So this isn't really an answer. But it makes me wonder if I'm this tired now what's going to happen later?
