It's five years since my surgery and treatment and I have developed pain in the ribs close to where the original cancer site. I've had a bone scan and the results are inconclusive. Have to redo everything in three months to see what has happened in between.
It's so frightening. Everytime I think that I can move on something drags me back again. Almost three years ago I became quite ill and after mri's was told that the cancer had spread and that I didn't have long to live and then a week later it was discovered that it was the drugs I was taking that were leaving a deposit in my bones.
I know that I was left uncertain and nervous for a long time after that. Everyone else was just relieved and moved on but it's hard to do that when you have been preparing to die. Now I'm trying to be positive but this inconclusive stuff if playing with my head.
Lots of questions running round in my head. If it is in my bones I'm guessing that I will die of that at some point. Pretty sure it can't be reversed. But can it take a long time? Can you live with cancer in your bones for a long time? Have any of you had secondaries in the bone?
Anyone any wisdom or knowledge to share please do,
I'm sad that anyone has to go through this crap. Me or any of you. It's a poop. Nuala x
