terrified its bone cancer
i was diagnosed with stage 2b lung cancer last july and after a pet scan told us that there was no spread beyond the right lung i had the middle right lobe removed followed by 4 rounds of chemo,just as a precaution.now i have bad pain in my left shoulder,shoulder blade and back and i am terrified that that it has spread to my bones in that area.my docter has said it is arthritis.my shoulder clicks and pops when i move it.my last xray was 10 weeks ago and that was clear and my next is in 2 weeks time.i am also still suffering from terrible indigestion and heartburn,which i never suffered from before all this.can anyone put my mind at rest
Re: terrified its bone cancer
dudette you really do overly concern yourself bout things that are yet to happen. Okay remember this.Cancer follow up with X-Ray is total rubbish. Any oncologist with a badge and half a brain will tell you that. Insist on a CT with contrast and then without intermingled with the odd MRI (BEST view of soft tissue masses) along with quarterly PET Scans is absolutely the way to go.
