Hi, I found out I had secondaries as my humerus fractured and was pain and could hardly move it. I went to A&E where I was turned away and they gave me a shoulder/arm support, and some pain killers and told me to come back if the pain continued. I went back after 48 hours, had to wait in a 5 hr queue, finally I had a x-ray of my shoulder and they said they couldn't see anything and sent me for another scan to my humerus, bingo, finally hit the spot. They kept me in for scans etc and could'nt operate because it was too near Christmas. I finally had my opt after 3 weeks of waiting. The surgeon was asked to send some samples of bone for biopsy and it came back inconclusive as there wasn't enough bone in the sample. I didn't get any cancer treatment until three weeks afterwards, they said by looking at the scans confirmed it was breast cancer, but I may have to have biposy to confirm the type of cancer, dreading it. Onchologist found tiny mets in spine and hip. Help?
