Started off 3 weeks ago with just muscle aches and pains. They just kept getting worse even when at Lake MacQuarie visiting the kids and meeting Miss Audrey 19 month old granddaughter for the first time.


Saw GP who did tests and ordered bloods which all came back negative but when my husband said he had read an article about chemo induced arthritis. Susan (GP) is absolutely fantastic and actually listens to her patients investigated and found that a trial had been done that proved positive for chemo induced arthritis - unfortunately the rheumatologist's in Canberra are snowed under so I now need to go to Sydney to get treatment.
