Update on Pet scan

Hi to all of you, I thought I would let you know I got my results today and they were not good. I have multiple bone mets from neck, shoulder, hip, pelvis to the thigh. I did not get to talk to dr and won't get to till monday but I was wondering is there anything they can do for the bone mets??? Since I had the sclc, I did not think they could do surgery.

Is there any chemo to help??? If anyone knows please post it. I am almost crazy.

Thanks,

Nancy

Nancy, sorry I don't have any answers for you but I have many prayers coming your way. I am so sorry you have to wait until Monday to talk to a Dr., I really can understand your frustration. Seems like I can handle the bad results, but I just can't handle the "not knowing". I am sure someone on here will have some answers for you (possibly radiation to the affected areas?). Take care.

Prayers and hugs,

Nancy B

Zometa and radiation and certain chemotherapy regimes effect bone mets. There HAS been some success with management and elimination of bone mets depending on where they are and their number and size and whether you respond to treatment. It can be done! Hold onto that.

I am praying for this for you. Keep us posted. Will be saying many prayers for you.

Hugs,

K
