After recovering from Zevalin I noticed personality/mood changes that I had never had before: depression and anxiety. I had symptoms similar to chronic fatigue syndrome, sleeping hours in the day and a full 10 hours at night. My joints ache and I tire very easily. I don't emotionally cope well with the fatigue. I have impaired memory and problems solving skills.
Ibritumomab - Has anyone experienced "chemo brain", depression, anxiety after treatment?
