Wondering if Y90 or Verzenio is causing intense fatigue. I am just wiped out, 2 weeks post Y90 procedure. I am very frustrated. Anyone else with this experience?

kaufmansci - the Verzenio can cause intense fatigue by itself early on. I slept probably 13-15 hours a day in the beginning. It gets much better over time. I think the y90 can cause fatigue also, but not from my personal experience. There's a thread for local liver treatments, including y90, where you can get better info:

And liver mets, in general:

And Verzenio:
