Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Plantar fasciitis and femara
    HELP!!! I have been on femara for 12 months, and at about 4 months I started getting plantar fasciitis. I now have plantar fasciitis in both feet and it is so painful that I am contemplating using a wheel chair. I cry daily from the pain, and sometimes wish I would just die. I was taking ibuprofen to help, but my onc had me stop due to liver issues. Is there anyone out there that can give me any advice or suggestions? I truly wish that I had just left the cancer alone, as my quality of life is so poor now that I see very little value in it.
  • Does femara affect crp results?
    Does femara affect the results of the C Reactive Protein test? I have been on it for two years and have side effects of joint pain and hot flashes with nausea.
  • I have severe bone pain and am taking femara. even when i am not on the drug, the bone pain does not go away. is it possible that the femara is triggering internal herpes outbreaks causing this pain?
    For the past eight months, I have been experiencing severe bone pain, not joint pain, but bone pain that causes me to feel the marrow in my bones is smoldering. I have tremendous amounts of fatigue in addition to genital herpes. I am only taking Femara, Vitamin D and Calcium per the Oncologist orders. I have had a bone scan for cancer a few months ago and my primary care MD told me bone cancer would not cause this type of overall pain.

    I have gone off the Femara for a few weeks at time to see if the pain would subside. It does not. Recently, I began to think that since my herpes outbreaks are triggered by certain foods, especially nuts, maybe an ingredient in the Femara is triggering the more systemic Herpes outbreak. I have never been a person to have headaches, only when I have herpes outbreaks, and now I have severe and frequent headaches. Could there be a connection?

    I have read that Femara can cause bone pain on its own, but this is so over the top from the blogs I have read, something else must be going on. Thanks to anyone who has any information regarding people who have had Herpes outbreaks for years and now are taking Femara.

    I have taken other hormone inhibitors with many side effects for previous breast cancer, which is why my Oncologist chose Femara this time around. Mary
  • Does anyone else have my weight gain problem?
    I have been taking Femara for 3 years, and constantly gain weight. I watch my diet, go to the gym 3 times a week, cycle whenever the weather allows. I´ve just came off a 4 weeks strikt diet and have lost nothing. I didn´t want to get on the scale, as I could feel on my clothes that nothing has changed. I´m desperate, but don´t want to come off the medivation.

    Anyone out there with the same problem? Any hints on what I can do?



    Thank you, Eileen
  • Does hair loss reverse after taking femara (1 answer)
    After chemo my thick straight hair grew in curly then gradually went straight. After about 2 1/2 years on Femara I am noticing my hair is thinning. Does anyone know if your hair eventually gets back to it's original fullness after stopping femara?

  • Bone pain whilst taking letrozole
    Before having breast cancer I walked 10 miles a week, and did a 40 min exercise
    routine. Having had a lumpectomy followed by 15 radiation treatments, and then
    prescribed letrozole for 10 years, I can no longer do my 40 min exercise routine, nor the power walking that I have done for so many years.
    I suffer severe bone pain and fatigue.
    I have come off the medication (3 wks now) after taking letrozole for 6mths.
    I can no longer tolerate the awful side affects, and Im just hoping the cancer
    does not come back.
  • Tinnitus with letrozole
    Sudden onset of ringing in the ears after two weeks on Letrozole 2.5mgs
