Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The muscle pain, skin dryness, fatigue and nausea are all due to possible side effects of chemotherapy. Frequent urination may suggest prostate issue or others. I recommend to undertake regular follow up with your doctor for the observation and further management guidelines.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
