I have had 4 chemos with adriamycon/cytoxin, followed by 4 treatments with Taxotere. Just had last treatment 3 weeks ago.
I read that some have bone/muscle aches with Taxotere.
Are the aches just legs-back? Or can they be here and there all over? I have little pains in many places. Just at times, and not enough to really complain about, but it keeps me wondering if they are from the Taxotere, or cancer spreading. Guess I am getting paranoid! Thanks for your information.
Dear seven7, Generalized aches and pains (myalgias and arthralgias) can be a side effect of taxotere. These generally occur a few days after chemotherapy and get better the further you are from treatment. Some people get pain associated with a numbness and tingling? I don't know if you are experiencing this but again this should lessen the further you are from treatment.
