How common is fatigue with breast cancer?

ANSWER

You’re likely to have some fatigue while you're getting treated for breast cancer. That's one of the most common side effects of the disease and treatments for it.

Fatigue isn’t the same as being tired. Tiredness happens to everyone, and a good night's sleep usually re-energizes you. Fatigue, on the other hand, can't be cured by rest alone.
