Well, had my latest bone scan. It shows 2 new bone mets, one on my left hip and one in my left knee. So, I'm being referred to a University Hospital in a larger city and will be seeing an Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in tumor surgery. I suppose that means he's a specialist specialist. Haha. Certainly not happy with these scan results. But I am thankful to finally know what has caused the severe pain and disability I've experienced since May and to have a possibility of some relief from pain without drugs and the possibility of regaining some of my quality of life. Will be having a PET scan Aug. 2nd to get further input on what else is going on. Since there seem to be few on this site who are dealing with bone mets and haven't seen any who have had surgery for them maybe I'll be able to contribute some new experience. I hope so.

Judy,

Hang in there. Lung cancer is persistent and one must muster up large amounts of steadfast resolve to counter persistence. 

When I read about your recurrence, I think back on my four. Each took the wind out of my sail and with each I had don battle rattle and engage with endured treatment. You know the drill, unfortunately. 

I hope your orthopedic surgeon excoriates those troubling bone mets. 

Stay the course. 

Tom

Aw, Judy, that sucks.  As you said, though, at least now you know what is causing the pain so you can do something about it.  I'm glad you're being referred to that ortho specialist.

We'll all be rooting for you, and anxious to hear about the game plan.

Sending a hug!

Thanks everyone. Have donned my battle rattle, Tom, and ready to go another round with this beast. Hoping this surgery goes a lot better than the Ablation did. And I'm also glad to have that specializing specialist Lexie.
