Question about sleeping problems after chemo/rad. treatment

Hi All,

It's now more than a week ago that Henk finished his 28x radiations plus 3rd chemo treatment.

Right now, he is very tired but still has problems with sleeping at night. He is on sleeping pills, but these pills have some nasty side effects.

Anybody here who has (had) the same problems? Any suggestions how to get some sleep at night?

I had this problem during and following chemo both times (2003 and 2004). It's been 6 months since my last Tx and I still have trouble sleeping. Had the same problem following surgeries (even knee surgery). I've been using 1/2 mg of ativan at night and it really works wonders. Hope you find a solution and happy dreams.
