For the past two weeks I have had pain throughout my body. It was hard to get out of bed or walk. Now it is mainly in my lower back and hips. I had chemotherapy six years ago from stage three colon cancer and it left me with some neuropathy in my feet and hands but this is way over the top. Whenever I have mentioned it in the past to my former oncologist, she says sometimes it doesn't go away. My question is does anyone else have terribly pain all over and then it goes away and comes back without warning? I'm not sure where to go from here or that is is from the chemo. Thanks

I don't know, but if this were me, I would be calling my primary care dr and get in to be checked out. Maybe it is, maybe not. Since so much time has passed its always better to be safe than sorry later on. Let us know what you decide and keep us posted.

That is good advice. What I will do is make an appointment next week. I am having a colonoscopy this Friday and they usually remove a precancerous polyp or two. I want to be sure that is all. After that, I will see about the pain.

Thanks again.
