Hi jaffacakes and Mummycrow
Thank you for your replies. It so reasuring to know that this seems to be normal although Id rather do without watering eyes and exhaustion. I have found I go out and then it takes a couple of days to recover. I make plans to do things round the house but just have no energy to do them.
I am glad to say my eyes seem to be improving but haven't been out since Wednesday to see if that's the case outside the house. I really thought that once my chemo had finished I would start to feel normal again so it has come as a bit of a shock to find it is going to take time.
Whilst waiting for replies you might find it helpful to call our Helpline to talk things over. They'll be able to offer practical information as well as emotional support. The opening times are 9-5 on weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays. The freephone number is 0808 800 6000.
With best wishes
I had my final Tax 2 weeks ago and due to have surgery on 8th Sept. However over the past week my eyes have been watering constantly to the point I can't focus a lot of the time and find it difficult getting about when out. Has anyone else had this problem?
Yesturday I did venture out on my own to have coffee with a friend. I walked as it was only a short distance and normally only takes about 10 minutes to get there. I was sitting down all the time in the cafe so not over doing it. When I left my friend to come home I came over all weak and felt my legs were going to give way. I would have called my husband to come and get me in the car but the car was at the garage so had to get home on foot. I felt so bad that I dont know how I got home and then almost collapsed when I got in. Is this normal and has anyone else experienced this. I'm now feeling too scared to go out in case it happens again.
