Happy Easter everyone.
Although I have had arthritis for some years, it has never really affected my way of life and I have always been very active and enjoyed walking. I have had twelve Avastin treatments, and am now finding that my joints are becoming increasingly painful and am unable to walk more than fifty yards at one time. The onc says that this is nothing to do with my treatment, but is the natural progression of the arthritis, something that I am dubious about. I know that exercise is important in treating cancer, and had been getting out for a walk most days, gradually increasing the distance I was walking. Suddenly being unable to do this is quite depressing and is making me feel old and feeble! Has anyone else experienced debilitating joint pain like this, and found anything that helped?
Many thanks Jenny.
