Joint pain


Recommended Posts

I have severe joint pain.  Hard to get around at times.  Very hard to walk upstairs.  Do any others suffer from this.  What or how do you treat.   Thank you very much.  I have had chemo and radiation and now immunotherapy   Almost done.  Thank you.

Welcome here. My severe joint pain was due to Taxol and Carboplatin-infused chemotherapy. The side effect occurred like clockwork starting about 24 hours after infusion and lasting 2 days. Then things would return to normal. Like you, I could hardly walk at all and when I did, I suffered great pain. Nothing, even narcotic medication, relieved this side effect. I had a total of 18 infusions in three years of treatment and once my treatment stopped, so did the joint pain. 

Stay the course.
