Joint stiffness
It has been a year since I received TAC for left ductal infilterating carcinoma, but now I awake every morning with both hands and feet so stiff.  I am unable to make a fist and may toes hurt when I first get out of bed.  It only takes about 30 minutes to an hour and I no longer notice the stiffness.  Is this something that will remain?  Is it from Taxotere?  Why did it show up after 1 year?

Hi,
No taxotere does not cause joint stiffness like the one you are experiencing. Svhedule an appointment with your physician and get yourself clinically evaluated. Discuss iwth your physician whether you need to get evaluated for rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis in view of the symptoms you are facing. It would be a good idea to get a bone scan and blood rheumatoid factor levls and blood calcium levels on the advise of your physician.
