  • Hi @jacksprat_x1 @Veriterc @Foxey, @RobertA Thanks for including us in the discussion. It is very common to expect and anticipate that life will return to normal after treatment. Often there isn't much discussion on the "new normal" afte…

  • @johnnieM Glad you found the LBW community and the Untire forum. It’s very common to feel disappointed in experiencing cancer fatigue especially after treatment. You are not alone in facing this situation. For many individuals, there is the expectat…
  • Thank you @RobertA for sharing about Untire and highlighting cancer fatigue as it is such a common side effect that many people don't hear much about it especially during and after cancer treatment. @mandyb123 @MoorandHill_man @LouiseJ we're always …
  • @aritokyo Thanks for reaching out to us. Unfortunately, cancer fatigue can be extremely debilitating and the effect it is having on the daily life of your father is not uncommon. It is especially challenging as fatigue is different for everyone. Du…

  • (Quote) @mazda @gjsAfter treatment ends, you want to go back and do all the activities and resume life as it was before. Resetting expectations and adjusting to this ‘new normal’ is one of the most challenging aspects we hear from patients. It’s som…
  • (Quote) @gjs Great suggestions about what you can do to help with the fatigue symptoms. Glad to hear you are managing it all well. The ‘meltdowns’ are the unfortunate aspects of cancer-related fatigue and what makes it different than just being tire…
  • (Quote) @mazda Yes, unfortunately, fatigue can happen at varying points in the cancer journey. Even after treatment has ended, sometimes this means years later, it is estimated that 30-40% of cancer patients and survivors still suffer from it. It’s…
  • (Quote) @Vic This is a good question. Everybody has his/her own need for sleep, but it must not be longer than 8 hours as 12-14 hours a night is much too long. Regarding tiredness/fatigue you should see a medical doctor to rule out any underlying is…
  • (Quote) @[email protected] Reintegrating back to work is an important topic that isn't talked about enough. One of the main problems of fatigued cancer patients is that fatigue is invisible to others. Because of this, they often encounter disbel…
  • (Quote) The cycle of extreme energy loss and slowly rebuilding while still in treatment is not uncommon. The most important thing is to keep an eye on your own limits. We advise you to remain active, but at your own pace.
  • (Quote) We often hear that from patients, that they thought they were alone in this. Friends and family don’t realize the magnitude of what they are going through. One of our users – Marloes – once told us that Untire is also like a friend, a friend…
  • (Quote) You’re right, Prolonged fatigue - and by this we mean many years - occurs in 30 to 40% of all cancer patients and survivors. It is good to hear you’ve discussed this with your husband’s healthcare professional. We hope the tips we shared and…
  • (Quote) Hi RobertA, It’s well known that ADT leads to increased fatigue compared to men who only underwent a Proctectomy. Some studies show that exercise programs (guided by physiotherapists) can improve someone’s physical condition. Everyone needs …
  • (Quote) Hi anzo1, First, it is great see your friend has you to help support him so he’s not alone with his fatigue. Research has shown that almost every cancer patient is moderately to severely fatigued during the first year after the diagnosis. In…
