    Hi Mel,

    Thank you for posting on CancerChatNZ. I’m very sorry to read about your Cancer returning and terminal this time. It sounds very tough for you having to go through treatment again.

    It can be helpful to have some counselling for coping strategies – you are welcome to call the cancer information nurses on 0800 CANCER(226237) to ask about counselling in your local area, or email us at info@cancersoc.org.nz

    I hope someone will answer to your post on our Forum.

    Kia Ora Tree,
    sorry to hear you are very fatigued after your last Chemotherapy Cycle. As one goes further into treatment often fatigue does increase.
    You may like to check out our fact sheet on managing fatigue, attached below.
