It’s natural to worry when having investigations. You say previous scans indicate this area is not healing. This may be why you are experiencing pain but there could be a number of reasons for this. It’s good to see your treatment team are investigating this thoroughly.
As you posted yesterday it looks as though the CT and bone scan will be this week. Hopefully the wait you have for any tests and test results are kept to a minimum. You may want to talk to your GP or treatment team about pain control while you wait.
