Is back pain a side effect of chemo?

My mother is undergoing chemo for breast cancer. Post her chemo cycles she complains about severe back pain for 2-3 days. Is back pain a side effect of chemo or is something else causing this pain?

Hi Sasha, there are many causes of pain in a patient who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Chemotherapy generally does not cause back pain. We would advise you to consult your doctor for proper assessment.
