hi- I'm new to this site but am asking on behalf of my daughter aged 27. 10 years ago she was diagnosed with nonHodgkin's lymphoma and received chemo and high dose steroids. 3 or so years after this she started with hip pain and then knee pain. She has now had two THR and one extensive knee replacement and is due for her other knee to be replaced. It's now in her shoulders, elbows and possibly wrists and jaw. We have always put this down to the high dose steroids, but I began to wonder if there was something else as well. She gets at least three migraines and severe visual disturbances every day and has had brain scans for this-nothing has shown up. Lots of joint and nerve pain but all put down to after effects of chemo and steroids. Trying to think of any family history- her sister had late miscarriage 18 weeks and also had henoch schonlein aged 4, another sister has endo. All three sisters and myself very painful and heavy periods. I have Atrial fibrillation and there are other bits and pieces. Has anyone any experience of Hughes after cancer and do you think this would convince Dr to do tests? Thanks Ali
