Hi all. I’m 68. I was diagnosed in June 2019 with advanced PC which had spread into my pelvic bone. Started chemo in Sept 2019 and finished on New Years Eve. Now on Zoladex implants and mostly fine. However, at the beginning of chemo I experienced quite bad joint pain, particularly in my knees. Started painkillers but, as the steroids kicked in, the pain went away. After finishing my course of steroids in early February 2020, the joint pain returned, which was expected, but now I still have it. I don’t know whether it’s chemo after effects, old age, arthritis....... I have a phone appointment with my GP tomorrow but haven’t seen an oncologist since 2 days after my final round of chemo.
Does anyone have similar experiences? How long should the after effects last? Am I just getting old and decrepit? As, apart from my joint pain, I’m fine, should I just stop moaning and get on with my life? Should I just have another G&T?
