well it's been a VERY long time since I posted on here and to be honest I had rather hoped I wouldn't need to find myself posting again (no offence!).
Anyway, here goes. To cut a very long story short I was first dx with bc in 2007 age 34. Had the full gambit of treatment but my prognosis was fairly poor as I had 25/28 nodes involved. I did have a scare a couple of years ago when they thought I may have bone mets but it turned out to be nothing sinister. However, for the past few weeks I have had horrific pain in my right hip at night. I contacted my BCN, who immediately arranged for me to see my surgeon as my onc was on hols. As soon as I saw my surgeon and told her my symptoms she dashed off, only to return a few mins later to tell me she had booked me in for an urgent bone scan a couple of days later.
Well, I have had a couple of bone scans in the past but this one was defo different. I got asked a million questions, loads of extra images of certain areas were taken and there was lots of whispering around corners! This all resulted in me then being whisked off for additional xrays, that weren't even on the original request!! And given that by this time it was late and the dept was all but closed it left me very concerned as to what they'd seen on the scan.
Anyway, I haven't cut a long story short at all have I!!?? I'll get to my point......I have now been told that my onc will be giving my my results first thing mon morn, following an MDT meeting that took place today. I am not feeling v.optimistic at all to be honest and I wanna be prepared for bad news. I'm just wondering, if it is bad news, what questions should I be asking him there and then?? I know v.little about bone mets so don't know what would be useful things to ask.
If anyone has any advice they can give me I'd be truly grateful,
