Question Chemo - Able to continue woking full time?

Starting chemo for stage III colon cancer. Is it realistic I will be able to continue working full time. So far, the only side effect has been extreme fatigue.

Re: Chemo - Able to continue woking full time?

Everybody is different. You may be able to work full time, at least for a while. Sometimes they change the chemo meds and each once has a different effect. Just be sure to follow your doctors instructions, watch for fever because chemo batters your immune system. Make sure you get adequate rest and eat well. Fight the good fight and you will be in my thoughts. Take care
