Hi all, I have just found this site via google as i sit here on nightshift at work.
My Mum has just been diagnosed with bones mets mainly in her spine. This was somewhat worrying but upon finding this site and reading the stories of others it has given me some reliefe and understanding of what my mum will be going through. Is there any information/ sites that you could point me towards that i can share with family and friends to give them a better understanding of what bone mets are and what treatments are available? Mum is awaiting an Mri scan tomorrow with the plan to start radio therapy asap. Her cancer was diagnosed three years ago. Over the past few months though she has been suffering from lower back pain along with a loss of strength in her legs. This past week she was admitted to hospital due to severe constipation. After a ct scan they discovered the bones mets in her lumber spine which explains both of these symtoms. I will try to keep you all updated and will be picking your brains over the next few weeks.
