Hello Everyone! I've just joined this site Nov 4th, and I'm SO relieved to find so many others having the same issues! Which are: Muscle Pain in hips, groin, shoulders, and back but only when I move and use these muscles. If I'm sitting, not moving, I only have pain in my left bicep. I spend an enormous amount of time on the toilet. And am still having issues with Chemo Brain. Oh, and my vision has gone to pot too. All these so much I am having to retire at age 55. Can't do my job. Retirement date is this coming December 7th. I'm petrified! My chemo treatments ended 6 months ago. Just had my 6 month check up (CEA, CT scan, & colonoscopy) and all is clear.
Doc wants to give me pills for the pain. I was to solve the problem, not just mask it. If it can't be fixed, so be it. Then I'll take a pill. But if I can fix it, I'd rather do that.
I don't have anything I want to talk about tonight, in particular. But I just wanted to say thank you to everyone contributing. Knowing I'm not the only one REALLY helps! More soon.....best to all! Lori
