- 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.

- 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.
