Trish Posted February 5, 2006 Share Posted February 5, 2006 Mom got her bone scan with imaging results. My sister took my mom to her appointment and said the orthopedic surgeon came in and told her it was not good, not good at all. He compared it to 3 other bone scans and as he said, "The horse is out of the barn." He showed the scans and pointed out the dark uptake areas. My mom had to bring these scans home to take to the radiologist on Monday. My sister showed them to me and it was really quite shocking. The difference, even from August until now, went from ankles to the back of her head. The hips and knees and right shoulder showed significant activity. Do any of you have any experience with bone scans like this? My mom is going on Monday (for 2 hours) to get marked on her hips, spine, and tailbone and is then going to have 15 treatments on these areas. I wish I could post this on ask the expert but since there aren't any volunteers. I guess I'm just hoping someone will respond to this who had a similiar scan and then stopped the cancer again. Thanks for listening, Trish Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
