Diagnosed with uterine cancer Feb '09, been away from chemo/radiation for 8 months and having some minor pain, mainly in the one buttox (sacroilliac per my chiropractor), and general tightness in most joints. Radiation was to the pelvic area and have "challenged" bowels, when eating much roughage, urgency to hit the restroom. I've an avid exerciser, and recently started yoga and meditation finding the movement is quite helpful.

Some have mentioned arthritis, osteoarthritis or due to the bone density test prior to treatments which showed less bone mass in upper hip area.

Anyone have long-term side affects from either of these drugs? Where's the best place to research as not finding much yet?

Any ideas?
