Question about muscle issues

Postby wife2jeff » Thu Jul 15, 2021 11:08 am

Hello everyone, it's been awhile since I have posted. My husband goes in for his yearly scans this next week and praying he will be clear. I do have a question for all of you. Has anyone developed any muscle issues after chemo, and I mean like a year after chemo? A few months ago my husband has developed a lot of muscle cramping and it's not always in same place, legs foot, and most recently in hands, his hand and foot both lock up for a few seconds which scares the crap out of him. He saw his neurologist about it and he said some times after having cancer this can happen and he ran a blood test that we are waiting for. I was just curious if anyone has experienced this?
