Musculoskeletal problems with Kadcyla

Hi. I've had breast cancer since 2008 (mastectomy) which after a recurrence 2013 (lumpectomy) went secondary in 2018. I'm now on Kadcyla and have been since April 2022. Last September I started to notice problems with my upper arm muscles and shoulder joints when removing clothes over my head. In Late November/early December it became much worse and my arm movements were restricted. After surgery in 2018 I religiously did the exercises and regained full arm movement but was now finding I couldn't do them. While I have regained this movement by restarting the exercises it is painful. I have been told this is not down to the Kadcyla but wondered if anyone else was experiencing similar.

  • Hi  

    I don't have the experience you're looking for but I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list where it'll be more easily seen by the other group members.
