I'm on hormonals (Lupron and Arimidex) and I notice that I tend to get bruises. Can't even remember how. It was actually worse on Tamoxifen but I was alson aspirin then. It is better but still frustrating. I just bump into anything, kneel down to play with my daughter and I have a bruise. They seem to last a while too. Normal?

My arms and legs are a mass of bruises. I look like a dalmation! I have been taking Tamox since November 06 and in March the doc added Vit E. I pricked my finger the other day and the blood just ran down my hand. I will call my Oncologist next week, but I'm glad to read it isn't just me.

I also notice alot of bruises on tamoxifen. Mostly on my legs but lately I've had some bruises on my hands and the tops of my feet. I've never bruised there before so it must be the tamoxifen. I have been on it for about 9 months. My last wbc and rbc counts were low so maybe that has something to do with it?

Interesting! I have been getting TONS of bruises, and I thought WTF? My surgeon also told me that having chemo makes us bruise easily...
I guess I'll check with my onc, when I go back, in July.
P S I am also taking Tamoxifen
