Jun 23, 2017 · Chronic Fatigue in Brain & Nervous System

I had chemotherapy and craniospinal radiation 20 years ago for brain cancer. Some of the biggest challenges have been dealing with the late effects, one of which is chronic fatigue. Has anyone else had this experience? If so, what are some ways that have helped you cope with chronic fatigue?

I also have memory problems, especially with recall and learning new things. I attended college two years after my cancer treatments and had difficulties with learning. My memory has also gotten worse over time. I had to come home from college in the spring of 2004 due to chronic fatigue and memory problems.

I have to take things at a slow pace and try not to overdo myself, which is easier said than done. Some of the doctors I’ve seen have said that the problems I’m having are more so from the radiation than the chemotherapy. I have to stay focused on one day at a time.

I have found some information about the late effects of radiation treatments. Most of my doctors tell me the radiation treatments were likely the main cause of many of the late effects I’m experiencing.

I had a pineal germinoma brain tumor 20 years ago. My biggest challenges now are dealing with the late effects of the chemotherapy & radiation treatments. I have chronic fatigue and problems with my balance. I’m also on hormone replacements. The things that seem to help the most are pacing myself and focusing on one day at a time.
