Post Chemo effects on everyday life

Although I finished all my rounds of chemo last year, I still feel like I am reeling from some of its side effects. My brain still feels foggy and my hands sometimes shake nervously. It has also affected my phjysical relationship with my husband as I don't feel the same energy or vigor. A constant cloud of tiredness always remains and makes me wonder if it was all worth it. How have your experiences been post-chemo?
How are you doing today?
I'm sorry to hear that you are stuck in a post-chemo fog. I will tag a few other members who may be able to share their experiences with you.

What did you experience post-chemo? Did you regain your strength? How long did it take? What advice can you offer @jessiey ?

@LizziB For me it was neuropathy and balance issues. Taking gabapentin for neuropathy , but nothing much helps balance, even physical therapy, which I do advise after chemo. I think the brain fog,etc. Goes away eventually, Your age might make a difference also. My first chemo at age of 40 was not as bad as 70.
