I was wondering if any of you also have fibromyalgia as well as having to go through cancer treatment, as I was wanting to know if so how did you cope and manage with having radiotherapy .

thanx Catt

Hi Catt, 

I’m in a similar position with Fibro, starting radiotherapy tomorrow. I’m finding the Tamoxifen a challenge. just not sure what’s causing what at the moment! 

I just remind myself to be gentle, do the things I know help, and take my time. Things will get better, but not putting pressure on myself by trying to put a timescale on it. 

You’re not on your own, if that helps at all!?!
