Hi I have been on Cytoxan/Avastin for awhile now I get Avastin IV every 2 wks and take the Oral Pill every day. I have been noticing bad aches and pains. I guess it’s muscle/joint and even bone pain. Anyone else get this. It seems to be worse now . It’s mostly my hips and thigh. I’m also very stiff !! Getting worried !

I never had this combination but always have side effects from all chemo meds. Stay strong. Millie

Hi Susan: I am also taking that combination. The joint pain is probably from the Avastin - they say taking Claritin or Zyrtec will help. Also, Ibuprofen should help as well unless you are taking a blood thinner. I hope this helps. Cindy

I’ve been on Topotecan alone, about to begin my 4th cycle next week. So far I’ve needed 3-4 blood transfusions (HGB under 7) since because of the anemia it’s caused. But, by golly this drug seems to be doing the trick :) My CA125 has dropped from 234, 145 (after CY1), 119 after 2nd & most recent @ 83! I’m pretty excited. I hope it’s helping you as well.

Thanks, Edna
