I am 6 years NED and only had one dose of chemo (stopped due to complications). I rarely even got a cold before cancer but since have had numerous infections. I keep seeming to get infections on my face (nose and eyes) even though I am very careful with hand washing. I have had a sore throat that scared me it was so bad, pneumonia, subluxation of shoulder, osteoarthritis in all joints and dizziness and balance issues, neuropathy to the point that I can't stand more than a few minutes (using a walker) and I keep dropping things.
I am 72 so it could be age related but 72 isn't that old and all of my siblings are the picture of health and seem younger than their chronological ages.
I sometimes wonder if it is stress related since my nerves are way worse since being diagnosed even though I don't consciously worry about recurrence.
