It is subjective: When you feel tired, not wanting to get up and go due to lack of energy. The causes arevaried .... chemotherapy may be a factor, but so can your Cancer itself cause it. Check your Hemoglobin(Hb) to make sure it is >11Gms. Make sure you sleep well. Lastly you must do daily exercise....walking is one of the best forms of exercise and will make your stronger provided you walk daily(10, 15, 20,30 minu
