BBB Posted April 5, 2017 Share Posted April 5, 2017 Hi Again! I was diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer in 2015, and am in remission. I had 5 treatments of Chemo, and 6 weeks of radiation, followed by 10 days of brain radiation. I felt so horrible for well, just getting a little better now in March of 2017. I already had a diagnosis of Depression before treatment, but now it seems to have taken hold and is overwhelming. Has anybody else experienced no energy, sleeping all the time, and increased depression as long as 2 years after treatment? My Oncologist says it it due to my use of pain killers which I have taken for at least 10 years, and has nothing to do with the treatment. Now I have a ruptured disc in my back, and several compressed discs in my neck, Fibromyalgia, which I've had for years, BOOP, COPD, etc, etc. My hair is dry and my scalp is itchy, and my skin is horrible... dry, flaky, and itchy. I'd like to hear about other peoples' experiences after chemo and radiation. Did it make you forgetful? Were you overly emotional all the time? Confused? How long did it last? I thank you in advance for any way that you could help me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
