Concern over secondaries

I was diagnosed in may. I’ve had surgery and am just waiting to start rads. I don’t need chemo which was a relief. My concern is a hip pain I’ve had since last September. I stupidly haven’t mentioned to anyone. It’s all been s bit of a learning curve. When asked questions about my general health ( which is usually good - I’m 44) I’ve not thought to mention it.
But tonight laying here awake with this dull persistent ache in my pelvis - just near my spine.
I’m seeing my oncologist on Thursday. Is it worth me mentioning ?

Sorry you have joined us here, you will find a wealth of support & information. It could be something, it could be completely innocuous but I would mention it to your GP or oncologist. I was 43 when I had bone secondaries diagnosed which I had put down to a sporting injury for about 3 months. It’s worth getting it checked out if only to put your mind at rest.
Best wishes, Smartie x

Sorry to hear that. Hope you are managing it well.
I will mention it - if only for peace of mind.
I feel a daft for not saying something before but I really didn’t understand the enormity of it all. It’s been such a whirlwind. I found out yesterday that I don’t need chemo which I was over the moon about and then the dark thoughts crept in. Xx

hi bumpkin, how did you get on yesterday? Did you tell your onc about the hip pain? It was so long ago that I was diagnosed that things have changed a lot since then and I can’t remember if it is normal to scan at this stage. Have you had any such as CT or bonescan. Don’t feel bad that you didn’t think to mention the hip pain before. When you have just been diagnosed all these odd pains pail into insignificance when you hear the word cancer. But you have realised very quickly that they are important. I hope that it has nothing to do with your diagnosis but better safe than sorry. I hope your onc has arranged for you to have some scans and I hope you will come back and let us know how you got on.
