Just wondering who out there has finished Tafinlar and Mekinist and there associated post treatment experience. I was feeling pretty good towards the end of treatment with good energy levels and a week after I was finished the combo have felt exhausted with very little energy. Anybody out there share their experience?

Cheers
Steven

I haven't done this treatment myself but I person the I support through Peer to Peer counselling finished her year in July. She is still struggling with Thyroid issues and fatigue. The " Brain Fog" is still hanging around as is the fatigue. She sometimes it hit's like a wall. There is also an emotional exhaustion that comes with finishing treatments. it might take a few months.

A positive but practical outlook will carry you through whatever you have to do.
