It seems a little late for onset, but for the past couple of days I’ve been having bone-and-joint pain in my lower back and hips, which is a known Neulasta side effect. Strong enough flashes of pain to make me stop whatever I’m doing and have to focus. If I sit still in a comfortable position, they don’t bother me so much, but if I am moving, or transitioning from seated to standing or vice versa, there they are.

Go me. Stoopid cancer.

That is all. You may shop as usual. No need to return to your homes.

I'd be the first to admit I'm not in the best of shape, but it sounds to me like some of the aches and pains of getting older. Or perhaps the "Yeow!" factor of your pain is more than I picked up.

In any case, sorry. I have, in fact, returned to my home.

Aw, crap. Just what you need: another hobby. Sorry to hear this.
