    Several months after Cancer treatment had Chemo, Radiation and Neulasta for Breast Cancer treatment. My bones in my legs and hands hurt like arteritis every day and are weak now. I did not have this before treatment. Trying to understand long term side effects now.

This is t ... Show Full Comment
