Have you found any correlation between the use of steroids in chemotherapy and osteoarthritis later on? I am 39 and have just been diagnosed with osteoarthritis is my spine. I was treated for ALL when I was 16 1/2. My doctor questions if the use of steroids contributed to this condition. Please let me know if you have done any studies or found any evidence to support the effects of chemotherpy on the skeletal system.
To my knowledge there is no known link between steroid use and osteoarthritis.
