My son completed chemo 7/2018. He is still experiencing fatigue, going to bed 7:30-8 every night. He does have a physically active job and works often 6 days a week, long hours. (Have I answered my own question here?) Is his fatigue normal over a year out? He's 48 now.
He keeps a lot to himself, but he did share that his stools are "sticky" or greasy, requiring more cleaning than usual. He sees the onco in a couple weeks; she did tell him on the phone that possibly, he may need another colonoscopy.
Interested in anyone's take on the fatigue and the stools. Thank you.
