About 1 month ago, I completed 7 weeks of radiation therapy for breast caner. I find that I am more tired now than when I was having the radiation (no chemo). The first week after completion of therapy, I felt wonderful and then it really hit. Why does this happen? What is going on in my body to cause such a lack of energy? Would an iron supplement help. How about acupuncture? I find this lack of energy depressing and debilitating. Any helpful hints and how long does this last. Most importantly, why? Thanks.
