Re: tumor on spine
Your story sounds almost the same as my moms story. To make a long story short, my mom was not feeling well (pain in her leg and shoulder area). I took her to the doctor and he thought it was a herniated disc also (god, I wish it had only been that). Then had to take her for an mri, etc. The dr. calls us on a Friday saying there are tumors on her spine and we had to rush to the dr. because they were concerned about spinal cord compression. She had cancer in her lungs, on her spine and hip and 3 tumors in her brain. She passed away a month later from septic shock (she was admitted 2 times, for a week each time, and the radiation and chemo lowered her immune system. Now that I look back, it was a blessing because she would have suffered tremendously and she went peacefully with me at her side. I miss her so much and it amazes me how the cancer can spread so quickly. If you would like any further information, please let me know.
