I finished chemo in August. I'd had 5 lots of carboplatin, but the only 3 of paclitaxol because of peripheral neuropathy.
After the chemo had finished I started having problems with my hands - stiffness & pain in my fingers - which make it really difficult to do lots of ordinary day to day tasks. Really frustrating, and it isn't geting any better. The doctors didn't warn me about this! I'm 46, feel 86!
I had a chat with a Macmillan nurse today and she told me that this is probably an auto-immune reaction to the chemo, and it is rare but not unheard of. She suggested I ask on here if anyone has had a similar experience, and can recommend any treatments that might help?
