Back pain after chemo

I finished Chemo in December. Bleomycin, Etopaside and Carboplatin. I know my cancer caused some damage but I'm also wondering if bone pain is common after treatment.

    Bone pain is something that I would talk to your CNS about and get evaluated. If nothing else, for some reassurance and to look at whether medication would help.

    However some chemotherapy drugs can cause pain. I had carboplatin and paclitaxel and had a lot of back pain during and just after treatment. 18 months post treatment ( I also had radiotherapy) my back is not what it was and I do seem to get far more aches and pains, especially if I over do it.
