    Was your tumor Estrogen+? If so you are probably on a hormone blocker of some sort, what kind depends if you are pre or post menopausal. Some of those meds. can cause joint pain from what I've been told. Everyone's body handles treatments differently. Have you discussed it with your doctor(s)?

    I have been done with treatment for a little over 2 years now, I still have a little bit of neuropathy in my foot and I try to exercise everyday, that really helps with joint pain, especially in my hips.
