Anaplastic Astrocytoma survivor extreme fatigue

I am new to the forum but not new to my prognosis. I was diagnosed with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma III in 10/13 in my left temporal lope. I was a 50 years old at the time. I had surgery to remove and only 2/3 was extracted due to fingering into the temporal lobe. I had radiation, comensurate with a low dose of Temadar and following radiation, a full year of Temadar at a higher dosage. I dealt with all the treatment fairly well. I was announced in remission over a year ago. Over time I had been able to do most everything that I did before but slowly, over time, my fatigue has gotten to the point that it is nearly dibiletating. I don’t sleep during the day but I do rest a great deal. I typically sleep 8 hours every night. I am left handed an mostly right side brain dominant which prevented a lot of added troubles. I have used adderall for my fatigue and it does not seem to help. I am hopeful that someone could give me some insight on those fatigue issues and what I could possibly expect in the future.

After the radiation and chemo the body has to repair itself.  This is done by giving the immune system the vitamins and minerals necessary.  The first place to look is diet.  Make sure you are eating plenty of fruits and vegetables.  Check out the Gerson therapy which shows how to get large amounts of vitamins and minerals in the body by juicing.  Vitamins are necessary for the body to create energy.  The one vitamin you can not get enough of from diet is vitamin D.  This is the sunshine vitamin and we do not get enough sunshine today.  Get your vitamin D level check.  You are most likely deficient.  The health of the body is determine by what you put in it.
