Yesterday’s sixth radiation treatment preceded a brief visit with the radiologist. The only discussion centered around the fact that I’ve been quite fatigued, off and on. His advice was to push it. Walk. More. A lot more. On the one hand, that seems perfectly reasonable. On the other, during the past couple of weeks, I’ve become winded and incredibly tired just walking (make that shuffling) through the grocery store. So, I’ll have to think on it. And, of course, I must give it a try. Perhaps I’m allowing myself to lose my energy simply by letting it slip away as I sit and think about it. We’ll see. I seriously don’t want to find myself unable to stand, and then unable to get up, from fatigue. I’ll include this matter with my conversation with the oncologist next Monday morning. In the interim, I’ll try to push myself a tad. The much cooler weather of the last few days doesn’t help, in that I find it hard to recover from getting cold; once cold, it seems I’m permanently cold. Ach. Stop griping. Try.
