    Hey there! I think this is a great question for your care team. There is so much variety when it comes to side effects, complications, etc. that it’s hard to pin down sometimes because we all experience them to such an individual degree. With something like joint pain, it could be happening for a number of reasons but I do think that feeling of “my body has aged 15 years” is a common experience because of the demands placed on the body during treatment. There are also factors to consider like are you still in active treatment or are you starting to feel this during remission and what your diagnosis and treatment protocol has been so far.

    I would definitely bring this up next time you see your care team and let us know when you have more info!
