hormone blockers and plantar fasciitis

CeeBee Member Posts: 1 New Member
Hi Everyone,
I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in Oct 2020 and have been on Letrozole ever since.  About 6 months ago I developed plantar fasciitis and my holistic Dr told me that it was unlikely to get better due to the hormone blockers.  Has anyone in my position healed from a soft tissue injury like plantar fasciitis and if so what did you do?

    Hi there! I feel your pain. I have had planter fasciitis a couple of times in the past and been reduced to a hobble with the pain. Both times it was fixed by podiatrists. I’d recommend consulting one they really are the experts here.

    I had plantar faciatis many many years ago.  Saw podiatrist who helped with exercises and acupuncture.  Was on letrozeole for a couple of years and it came back.  Have changed drugs and pain has reduced.
