Nicki Polykarpou

Nicki was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2011 (aged 41) while she was part-way through PhD studies in the UK.  She underwent a year of what she calls 'active' treatment: chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. Once that was over, she tried to get back to her studies and a 'normal' life but kept on failing and couldn't understand why. It was only when she returned to Sydney, late in 2012, that she was diagnosed with post-cancer fatigue by the UNSW Fatigue Clinic. Five years on, she has been unable to return to her studies or to work. During this time, however, she has tried various therapies and treatments and now has a greater understanding of her fatigue and is better able to manage her symptoms.
