Ask your oncologist: My impression is that it does not sound as though it would help, and whenever someone has had recent chemotherapy, it is important to discuss it with their oncologist before they add anything to the regimen. Drug interactions can occur even with supplements. He or she may say it's OK, but be sure not to start until you've discussed it. Good luck. ...Read more
How long after chemo, surgery and rad will your energy return? All labs are normal, NED, finished last tx 3 months ago, but still fatigued?
3-4 months: Individually each procedure requires about 6 wks. post treatment for symptoms to return to normal. As such 6 wks post surgery, most are beginning to feel improvement in symptoms. Post radiation, 6 wks also required and the same for completion of chemo. When all are employed at least 3-4 months needed before one begins to appreciated improvement overall. ...Read more
Is energy therapy useful? Told to heal my knee pain with my mind instead of going to Dr.,to get an order for an X-Ray, & seeing if I need surgery.
Visit the doctor: Western ("allopathic") medicine is not perfect. However, it is scientifically-based, and generally administered by professionals with good training, experience and ethics. Practitioners of "mind healing" may not adhere to the same rigorous standards, and the advice you quoted sounds irresponsible. I would suggest seeing the doctor. You might then use "mind healing" as an added resource. ...Read more
After two surgeries I have to take B12 shots monthly but still have no energy. Amount of sleep and diet seem unrelated. Can my humira (adalimumab) be causing this?
Yes it can: Humira (adalimumab) can cause "lack of energy" feeling, but not very common. I assume that you had gastric surgeries? Since you food intake is significantly reduced after the surgeries, this can itself cause the lack-of-energy feeling for quite some time until you body has the time to readjust. Also, thyroid dysfunction as well as depression can cause this feeling ..So, onsult your doc.. ...Read more
34 year-old woman continues to suffer gynecologic pains, especially with bodily movement, after da Vinci surgery for fibroids and endometriosis.....?
Ovarian conservation: Unfortunately this is fairly common; my best guess is it's related to recurrent or ongoing endometriosis. There are many (good) reasons for preserving ovaries when having a hysterectomy, but good data show that if ovaries are conserved women are 6 times more likely (62% vs. 10%) to have recurring symptoms, and 8 times more likely to need additional surgery (31% vs. 4%) than those who have them removed. Adhesive disease is certainly another possibility. ...Read moreSee 14 more doctor answers
6-8 weeks: This depends greatly on the procedures performed during the surgery as well as your occupation. Most arthroscopic shoulder surgeries take 6-12 weeks to recover from, but people with desk jobs often can return to work in 2-3 weeks in a sling with activity restrictions. People who work in manual labor jobs with heavy lifting may not be able to return to full duty for 3 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
