You’re right, fatigue is very subjective and individual but there are some ways level of fatigue can be measured. There are different methods for doing this so it’s difficult to say what a score of two might mean. I wonder if you are able to contact your breast care nurse and ask them for more information.
Do call our free, confidential Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. The number is 0808 800 6000.

My chemo is to be delayed a week which I’m very happy about. The reasons are a bit confusing but one of them is because I have a fatigue score of 2. I got left a message yesterday so couldn’t ask the nurse.
What does this mean? 2 doesn’t seem very high and how can you score fatigue? It’s so subjective and individual.
