Will radiation therapy for prostate cancer make me tired?

ANSWER

Radiation treatment will affect each person differently. Some often feel tired after several weeks of treatment. For most, it's mild. However, a loss of energy may make you change your daily routine.

Your doctor will tell you if you should limit your activity.
