I started my first radiation treatment yesterday. I’m supposed to receive 15 total. I would say my breast feels tender and afterwards it was slightly achy. However, I am TIRED. I went to bed a bit earlier because I was tired early. I’m tired today also. Does this sound normal? I was told that the fatigue would come on after a couple weeks.

    Hi I am going this Friday to my radiologist to begin the measurements etc to get started on my treatments. (I had my 1st surgery in January of this year) I was told the same thing about fatigue starting later in the treatments but I’m hearing more and more people say they are tired right after.
