I wanted to get some feedback on hip and joint pain after treatment. I finished chemo in April and radiation in June. Since then I've been having (minor, though sometimes a little more) hip pain and joint pain. There's a spot on my right hip that is sore when I turn over at night. Also my knees are creaky, if not quite painful. I also have intermittent pangs in my ribs and lower back. Even writing this down scares me. Any others experience these aches and pains after chemo? I have an appointment with my oncologist tomorrow, and I am very afraid of having any scans done. It's just the waiting and the phone call that scare me. What the heck could this be? Exercise doesn't seem to help or hurt. I do heavy-duty cycling and light weight training.
