It's very different for everybody and depends on how well your body tolerated the chemo, whether you already had surgery or not, whether there were complications, how good your general health is, etc. On the days when you have more energy, exercising even a little can be helpful. If you can start by taking a walk around the block, that will help. And then setting small goals can get you started. I found that I didn't "recover" from chemo all at once, but in spurts, and I learned to accommodate myself--rest a little, work a little, etc. It's a judgment call, though I realize with 3 little ones, you don't necessarily have the luxury of resting. I hope you feel better soon. Hugs & prayers, Mary
