So Tired - waiting on results of biopsy

Hi all, I live in San Fran…waiting on the results of my 2nd stereotactic biopsy. I’ve searched so many sites looking for fatigue as a symptom of BC. I’ve been tired for nearly a year (so unlike me) and am wondering if anyone else experienced fatigue prior to diagnosis. It’s not listed as a symptom of BC. I’ll know my results next Tuesday (4 more days to wait); this waiting is unpleasant to say the least.

Appreciate any replies regarding fatigue as a symptom…

Hi caitirish

didnt feel tired myself, but did have a nose bleed, could be totally unrelated, but had never had one in my life. it just set me thinking things were not right.



Hi caitirish

I was really tired before my dx. I thought I’d just been working tohard. The week I had my op and the cancer removed I felt so much better and a lot less tired…

fingers crossed for a good result for you

Thank you for your comments…it’s hard to find reference to fatigue on-line as a symptom; the only way I’ll know is by getting the results…the waiting is not easy:) Best wishes to all…
