Hello, I am 2years 5 months out of treatment for anal cancer stage 3 b. Recently I have been having strange side effects. I am having numbing in my toes, leg and shoulder I am also having terrible pain in my knee ( left side only). I saw the dr and they did an xray and said there was no obvious signs of bone mets. But of course a bone scan would be more accurate. My oncologist said anal cancer doesn't usually spread to the bones and I shouldn't worry. I'm 45 and I feel like I'm 60. My joints just hurt so much. has anyone had these side effects? Im concerned and don't know why this has started happening 2years out of treatment.
