Topic: Bone Scan Results
Got results of my Bone Scan Yesterday. According to the report I now have mets to the right side on the tenth rib. Other than mild bone degeneration of spine and knees that is all they saw. Has anyone had experience of mets to ribs or the bones? Talked with Oncologist and he says continue treatment as is. Going to slightly increase Xeloda a few days this cycle. Otherwise press on as usual and have CT after I complete this round # 5. Oncologist thinks the lesion on the rib cound be from a previous tramua. I've had a few rib smashers so we'll wait, watch and see. As far as the pain around rib #7 I'm told that was caused from my liver inflamation that caused like a mini hernia action causing a vessel to rupture and my body absorbing the blood is what really caused the pain. Does that make sense? I guess, the pain has subsided pretty much. It certainly makes you aware how vunerable you are and why everyone keeps telling me to take it easy. Has anyone experienced any internal liver vessels popping? Other wise my visit / checkup was normal as far as blood work and weight. I even gained 5 lbs. Must have been those delicous Spare Ribs I barbarcued (Of COURSE I ATE A FEW) Ha! Yummy for the tummy. Any infor on personal experience with bone mets and popping vessels of the liver would be gratefully appreciated.
Bless Ya All !
