Is fatigue a symptom of ovarian cancer, or of a recurrence?
If it's persistent, we need to know about it
Response by Guest experts from Being Together Plymouth

Fatigue can be one of the symptoms that people present with. You should always report the symptoms that you have and for ladies who have already been through the system, you should phone your CNS or go to a GP. The other thing is the persistence that you look out for. Fatigue isn’t tiredness. We may all get days where we may feel tired, but if it’s persistent, we need to know about it, but it will normally be in combination with other things, such as pain, change in your bowel habits, loss of appetite, passing urine frequently, bloating.
