Fatigue

The fatigue you will feel with radiation therapy is not the kind of tiredness that comes after “overdoing it” and goes away with a good night’s sleep. This treatment-related fatigue is an overall, deep-felt lack of energy.

To combat the fatigue, try to get rest when you can. Regular, brief “cat naps” during the day can give you more energy and allow you to save your energy for the most important activities of the day. Also, try to exercise a little bit. If you can take a walk or go for a swim you may be able to boost your energy levels.
