Has anyone had tendon pain while on avastin?
I am on a clinical trial - 3 sessions taxol/carboplatin/avastin, debulkment surgery, 3 more chemo sessions and then 18 doses of avastin - all at 3 week intervals. I am currently 10 weeks into the 18 doses of avastin. Latest CT was clear and ca125 numbers have stayed in the normal range since surgery. I am currently experiencing sharp and throbbing pain in what seems to be 2 tendons on the outside of each foot. It is intermittent and happens most frequently when I lay down or stand up. According to the drug information it would be a rare side effect. Doctor on the chemo ward thinks I may have stretched out or injured my tendons when I had numbness in my feet and may not have been walking properly. He prescribed difene gel and neurophen (sp?) which after a week does not seem to have accomplished anything.
