A Little Bit of Tired...
Thought I would share that I have been having a little bit of tiredness since I last blogged.
Okay -- a lot of tiredness.
Wednesday I felt like a walking Zombie.
Thankfully, yesterday I did not. However today... I am a little tuckered out but gratefully I do not feel as much fatigue as I did the other day. Not sure if it is due to the Tamoxifen or due to the Chemo assault of the last few months. Or possibly a combination of the two. Just to be safe I went to see my ONC yesterday and had my levels checked. I am slightly anemic which may have something to do with the fatigue. Not enough to be put back on Iron or to worry about. He will keep an eye on this and remember he was my Hematologist long before be was my Oncologist. All other levels including my tumor markers are good.
I also learned that the pie extravaganza in Julian added on 3 pounds! Oy!
My ONC stressed that it will take at least 3 months to get my energy back from the Chemo. So I will continue to listen to my body and rest and SLOW DOWN when I need to.
Have a great weekend.
