I'm new to this site. I've been through 6 rounds of chemo. (Carboplatin, Taxotere, Herceptin.) 22 days of radiation. Herceptin continued every 3 weeks 'til June.I'm hoping to get some advice. I've done 2 rounds of just Herceptin, and started having severe joint pain everywhere. I was feeling better after radiation, but feel like I'm going downhill again. Has anyone else had joint pain with Herceptin, is there anything that gave you some relief so you could function? (I've phoned my onc. about this twice. 1st time he told me to take 400mg. of Motrin, 3 x/ day. That didn't help. 2nd time his nurse told me he said that joint pain wasn't a side effect of Herceptin, recommended phys. therapy. I'd really appreciate any advice.
Thanks so much!
