I wonder why my oncologist does not address the problems I've had post chemo...pain in my feet, which has gotten better over these past few months and now pain in my knee joints. She listens to me when I tell her about these symptons and she notes them, but doesn't give any explanation about them. It's like now that I'm done with chemo the only real concern of hers is watching for any sign of return of the ovarian cancer, which I'm certainly glad for. But, it would be nice to have her explain why these things are happening and possible ways to help alleviate the pain. I know they have to be a result of the chemo, because I didn't have any of these problems pre-chemo. I did have a good exam today...I'll get my CA 125 score tomorrow and if that is good, it looks like I'm NED right now. So, I am thankful for that, but just get a little frustrated that these post chemo problems are not addressed. I know this is not uncommon, because I've read of so many other ladies who have experienced the same things.
