Hip relacement after chemo
I had breast cancer and had a right mastectomy followed by 4 rounds of chemo every 2 weeks of Adromycin and Taxol, followed the next day by Neulasta.  Before my diagnosis, my left hip would bother me occasionally for a couple of days and then go away for months.  A bone scan, after my diagnosis, showed some osteoathritis of the left hip.  During chemotherapy, I noticed after the Neulasta shot each time, that my hip would really be extremely painful, and after the third round, the pain in my hip did not go away.  I finished chemo in December of 2009, and the pain never went away.  I saw an orthopaedist in the beginning of April, and he did an x-ray and the joint was completely bone on bone.  I had my hip replaced May 13, 2010.  My orthopaedist told me that the hip joint was a complete mess and he would expect to see that with someone who had been suffering for a couple of years or more with pain in the hip joint.  Is there a correlation with anything that I took for treatment and the degeneration of my hip joint?  I have heard other stories similar to mine.
