I am done with chemo, but I still am getting a lot of anxiety. Is this common?

Here too. Chemo was done 3 wks ago. I have restless leg, am anxious and depressed, lots of crying jags, poor focus, fatigue, numb feet and hands with poor balance and clumsiness. Lots of people say recovering can take weeks, months, even years.

Thank you @modz1955 it helps to know I am not alone. How are you feeling and holding up?

Nice to hear from you. I'm noticing a little improvement in taste, stomach and bowel issues lately. Also the restlessness and anxiety have lessened. Not gone but a bit better. Still a lot of joint pain, especially lower back, but I had those issues previously. I can barely walk right now. Wondering if all the chemo and other drugs have made that worse. Still pretty depressed. When was your last chemo? How's it going with the anxiety?
