I'm new to this site, but I'm hoping to get some info about side effects from chemo.
I finished chemo a year ago, radiation 10 months ago and my PET scan was clean last Fall after surgery and chemo. I started having headaches first thing in the morning a few months ago, but it went away after a couple of weeks. Now I'm having headaches daily - usually in the afternoon/evenings, sometimes in the mornings, or on an off all day. They aren't really bad headaches, mostly just a nagging ache, but still take a toll. I have never gotten headaches other than the occasional sinus headache, so this is kind of concerning. I am not taking Tamoxifen or any other hormone medication. Does anyone know if this is a possible side effect from chemo? I have lymphedema, and chemobrain and very dry eyes at least seem to be some long term side effects from the chemo. I'm planning on talking to my doctor about it, but would love to get some reassurance that maybe someone else has had this happen, too? I started looking at info about metastasis and got very scared.
