Bone Mets

Hi All,

My mom had breast cancer in 2008. Then for the past 10 months she’s had real bad pains in her hip. They are that bad she’s been unable to walk without crutches, not been able to drive etc. From the beginning she has raised her concerns re the cancer but been brushed off time after time. She had a hip replacement in September even though from scans they said it didn’t look too bad. After hip replacement she’s still no better. Finally she saw a difffernt doctor 3 weeks back who sent her for an urgent bone scan and we were devestated to hear the scan is showing bone mets in skull, ribs, spine and pelvis. We have our first visit with oncologist tomorrow. Has anyone else been in similar situation? I’ve been trying to research it myself and the outlook always seems pretty grim but after reading some of the posts on here it’s made me feel a little more hopeful. I have a newborn baby too and finding this so hard to deal with but trying to put on a brave face and hold it altogether. Any information you can offer is really greatly appreciated x
