You sound like my oncologist - blame it on Taxol. I had no joint or muscle pain prior to Taxol and after 3 years I am still in pain from this drug. I was unable to walk 3 days after infusions and this would last for 4-6 days. I was literally paralyzed in my legs and my doctor (oddly) did not record this on my medical records....have to wonder why....I'm convinced it is due to liability issues. I now have neuropathy in my hands and feet and continual pain in my legs and hips. It is about time that more research is done into the long term effects of dose dense Taxol. If I'd been given an adequate explanation of the side effects, I'd have chosen NOT to have the chemo. Quality of life should have been my choice.
